Seek Expert Help for Brain Injuries after a Car Accident

The term TBI stands for Traumatic Brain Injury, it happens when something fractures or penetrates your skull, or if something causes damage to your brain tissue. These brain injuries are the result of violent force against your head, or a fast jolt of your head or body. According to national statistics 17% of non-fatal TBi is the result of motor vehicle accidents and injuries.

Medical professionals will typically rate your TBI in three categories; from mild, to moderate to severe. Mild forms of TBI will leave you feeling a brief change in your mental awareness or consciousness. Whereas, a severe case of  TBI may result in periods of unconsciousness, being in a coma, or even death.

Why Do Car Accidents Result in Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are two typical types of trauma associated with being in a car accident that typically results in a TBI. A blunt trauma would be considered a more serious type of head injury. A blunt trauma would happen when you knock your head up against something, maybe the steering wheel, radio console, window, headrest, or even the windshield.

Other clients of attorney Domingo Garcia suffer from a TBI because of the powerful force of the accident forcing the brain to shift inside the head and hit the interior of your skull. This is the type of injury after a car accident that wouldn’t leave obvious bruising on your body, or signs of a brain injury. So while not obvious you can still have contusions, bruising on your brain, or even hemorrhage and have bleeding of the brain.

What are the Symptoms of a TBI After a Car Accident?

Our attorneys have been working with car accident victims since 1987, over 37 years now. Attorney Domingo Garcia has had many clients with TBI after a car accident. If you have a brain injury it is going to keep progressing and getting worse if left untreated. The symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury can be physical or psychological. They can be mild or severe. Your symptoms may not show up right away, or maybe slowly over a few days, and sometimes even take a week to hurt you enough to treat it seriously.

Physical symptoms of TBI after a car accident include headache, nausea or vomiting, fatigue, drowsiness, loss of consciousness, confusion, difficulty sleeping or if you are sleeping way more than usual, speech problems, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination.

Cognitive symptoms of TBI after a car accident include trouble focusing or concentrating, problems with your memory or trouble remembering things, anxiety, depression, agitation and general combativeness, slurred speech and general mood changes. Oftentimes cognitive symptoms of a TBI indicate a more serious injury.

There are also some sensory symptoms of a TBI such as sensitivity to light and sound, a weird taste in your mouth, possible changes in your sense of smell, ringing in your ears or blurred vision.

Difference Between Mild to Severe TBI

Suffering a mild TBI could mean short term problems that may improve and heal over time as your brain begins to heal. A severe TBI however will mean multiple appointments with doctors and specialists to provide you proper treatment. It doesn’t matter how serious you think your brain injury is, the truth is after any car accident it is best to seek immediate medical attention.
