Brain injuries can have a long-lasting impact on families
One of the most devastating things that can occur as a result of a car accident is a traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by various other types of accidents as well, including work injuries. The brain can be injured as a result of external trauma or internal conditions. These internal conditions can cause hypoxia or a loss of oxygen. A cerebral edema, which involves swelling in the brain, can also occur.
In more severe accidents, brain injuries may be immediately visible, with outward sides of injury to the head. However, a brain injury isn’t always obvious from the outside. In many cases, the victim’s skull may not show signs of damage outwardly, but the victim may be suffering from headaches, dizziness and sensitivity to light. Because of this, many brain injuries are difficult to diagnose. Doctors may request a CT scan, but a brain injury may not show up or may just appear as a bruise. It is important to note that many brain injuries can be diagnosed by looking at symptoms. If you have been in an accident, your friends and family should keep an eye on you and report any abnormal symptoms to doctors.
Those who have brain injuries may be facing life-changing circumstances, depending on the seriousness of the injury. People suffering from mild brain injuries may be able to recover fully with the right treatment and rehabilitation. However, more serious injuries can cause irreversible damage.
