Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries Suffered In New Hampshire Car Accidents
Facts: Approximately 1.4 million people suffer Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) each year. Car accidents are the number one cause of TBI, which occurs when the brain suffers a direct impact. The consequences of TBI are irreversible and often very severe.
TBI forever changes the way the injured person's brain collects and processes information. This can affect the victim's ability to speak, hear, understand, feel, and interact with loved ones. TBI can also result in physical disability and in some cases can be fatal.
Suffering TBI can significantly change the life of the injured and their family. It may alter relationships with loved ones, necessitate continual medical or rehabilitative care, prevent the injured party from working or performing everyday activities, and lead to physical or emotional suffering of all parties involved.
Some of the common symptoms of TBI include:
- mild headaches that persist
- trouble remembering and concentrating on tasks
- loss of balance
- blurred vision or ringing in ears
- erratic mood and behavior changes
- increased sensitivity to light and sound
