long island personal injury law - traumatic brain injuries
When damage to the brain occurs from an outside force, such as a blunt force to the head, upper body or neck, this can result in a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic Brain Injuries can range from moderate to severe. The symptoms of traumatic brain injury can range from mild to intense, as well. A car crash, an accident at work, or a slip-and-fall can all cause a traumatic brain injury. Mild traumatic brain injury could be in the form of a mild concussion while more severe trauma could be in the form of bleeding or tissue damage of the brain.What is a concussion?According to the Centers for Disease Control, 30 percent of all injury deaths are caused by a traumatic brain injury and 153 people die daily due to injuries arising from traumatic brain injuries. A concussion is one of the more commonly occurring traumatic brain injuries. Side effects may be temporary or permanent, and may show up immediately or weeks afterward. Some of the symptoms of a concussion are:Blurred visionFeeling faintHeadachesLoss of balanceMemory impairmentLoss of consciousnessNauseaSlurred speechSleep disturbances The symptoms and effects vary depending on various factors (such as severity) with symptoms ranging from physical effects, such as seizures, or cognitive effects, such as feeling confused. New research is now showing other symptoms such as depression or an increased risk of Parkinson’s Disease may be caused by concussion.New research done by Neurology, (the official journal of the American Academy of Neurology) shows a 56% higher risk with a mild head injury and an 83% risk for a more severe head injury for developing Parkinson’s disease.Additionally, research published in the Journal of Neurotrauma notes the necessity of keeping a close eye out for depression in those who have experienced a traumatic brain injury with an eye toward preventing minor depression from escalating into major depression.
