Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Concussion-Traumatic Brain Injury
The most common type of brain trauma, both closed and open head injuries can result from concussions. These are typically triggered by blunt force trauma or blows to the head, intense and powerful shaking of the victim’s head, and especially car collision type whiplash movements. Whiplash and sudden shaking of a person’s head and neck can take place at just 5 MPH in car-related accidents.
One must realize concussion can lead to post-concussion syndrome post-concussion condition, which is a very dangerous disorder and can linger for a few months to a year or more. The Medical profession has decided to stop referring to concussions as mild traumatic brain injury or MTBI because the brain injuries were felt to be downplayed in their seriousness.
- difficulty sleeping
- inability to concentrate
- memory loss
All concussion demands immediate medical attention and must never be ignored nor overlooked by attorneys and physicians who concentrate on the more obvious orthopedic injuries.
Any type of concussive force can greatly hinder your ability to complete normal daily activities of living tasks and can interfere with your ability to complete job functions. All brain injuries can affect people differently especially if you have had a previous brain injury or suffered a previous heat stroke and or dehydration. Many people think that most individuals with concussions recover after a period of rest time. This is merely an observation and is not considered good medical advice.
That is why if you or a loved one have suffered any type of brain injury we work with Medical Doctor and neurologist and we can get you an appointment with these medical professionals who will work on a lien and wait to get paid for their medical services until your claim settles.
Contusion- Traumatic Brain Injury
A contusion is a severe brain bruising or bleeding as a direct result of impact trauma to the skull. A cerebral contusion as defined by Wikipedia is a bruise to the brain tissue. Symptoms of contusion also vary from victim to victim and are depicted by how severe the brain bleed is and where the bleed affects the brain tissue. Another reason contusion symptoms are different among victims is that during a brain bleed there is usually a release of toxins known as a chemical cascade that can affect the brain tissue also.
Typically, when head trauma is noted, victims are rushed to the nearest emergency room. The emergency room doctor has a standard of duty to order all the standard testing procedures to diagnose a traumatic brain injury. The main duty an ER Physician has is to either hospitalize you for further diagnostics or release you to go home. Just because you are released to go home does not mean you have a clean bill of health. Sometimes MRIs and CT scans do not provide all of the information needed to make a solid TBI diagnosis. So if you are released from the ER and you are not making continual and noticeable improvement we suggest going to a Neurologist.
