Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by a blow or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.
Characteristics of a Truamatic Brain Injury
Typically, the severity of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can range from mild to severe. Additionally, TBI symptoms do not necessarily appear immediately after a trauma. Knowing that, you should not be in a rush to settle a traumatic brain injury claim, because all symptoms may not have appeared.
Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be very different from person to person. Some typical symptoms for a person who has sustained a TBI can be the following:
- Blurred vision or impaired hearing
- Problems with thinking, reasoning, or understanding words
- Erratic behavior or emotions
- Inability to think abstractly, talk clearly, learn normally, or perform simple physical activities like walking without difficulty
- Difficulty remembering things, paying attention, or solving problems
Early Intervention and Treatment
If you have sustained a traumatic brain injury, then early intervention and treatment are crucial. Early intervention and treatment are particularly important for a child who has sustained a TBI, because the brain of a child is still growing and developing.
