Why Brain Injuries Need to Be Taken Seriously

Why Brain Injuries Need to Be Taken Seriously

Posted By Maher Law Firm || 3-May-2017

The brain is considered the most important and complex part of the human body since it controls every bodily system. Unfortunately, it is also extremely fragile.

Trauma and damage to the brain can result in catastrophic injury and permanent disability. The fact is, there is no such thing as a “mild’ brain injury.

Symptoms of an underlying brain injury include:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Blurred vision
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Memory loss
  • Hearing loss
  • Chronic or intense migraines
  • Excessive sleeping or insomnia

One of the reasons why brain injuries should be taken seriously is because it can be extremely difficult to determine the full extent of the damage. Symptoms of traumatic brain injury (TBI) are not always evident right away, which means that some symptoms may be apparent days or weeks after the accident happened.

Second, brain cells are not as regenerative compared to other parts of the body. Even a mild brain injury may result in degradation of the brain’s health at a rate much quicker than what the brain can heal and repair.

If you have suffered a brain injury, medical treatment is often expensive and require sessions for the remainder of your life. To help cover the costs of medical treatment and physical rehabilitation, you may need to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for causing the accident.
