There are several causes for brain injuries. Brain injuries can be very serious in nature and change lives. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by work-related accidents, slip and falls, car accidents, bike crashes, motorcycle accidents, sports-related accidents, and other kinds of mishaps. Brain injuries also vary in severity from mild to very severe. TBI can lead to personality changes, the inability to have relationships, restless sleep patterns, and uncontrollable changes with bodily functions. Some of the most serious brain injuries cause irreversible brain damage that affects you and your family.
Common Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
There are several different symptoms that come with traumatic brain injury. You might suffer from some and not others. These injuries can be life-altering. Here are few TBI symptoms you might experience:
- Memory loss
- Mood changes
- Slurred speech
- Vision changes, such as blurred vision
- Sleep disturbances
- Difficulty thinking
- Inability to pay attention
- Loss of consciousness
- Skull fractures
Severe brain injuries can lead to coma or a vegetative state. In a vegetative state, you are awake but don’t show signs of awareness. If you are in a coma, you aren’t awake or aware of your surroundings.
Preventing A Traumatic Brain Injury
There are many causes for a TBI, but oftentimes it is because you failed to wear the proper protective gear or in this case – a helmet. Motorcycle helmets, bicycle helmets, ski helmets, and
skateboard helmets save lives. That helmet can mean the difference between life and death. Riders without who aren’t wearing a helmet are 37% more likely to die in an accident than those who do have a helmet on. In a lawsuit or settlement, if it is determined that any part of the victim’s injuries were caused by him or her failing to wear a helmet, the compensation awarded can significantly be reduced.
