    Chicago Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

     

    Traumatic brain injury occurs as a result of externally inflicted trauma that may result in significant impairment of a person's physical, cognitive and psychosocial functioning. The usual sign of traumatic brain injury is an acute change in the injured person's mental status. This change may or may not involve loss of consciousness after the traumatic event. Traumatic brain injury is distinguished from anoxic brain injury, which occurs when the brain is deprived of oxygen. Examples of anoxic brain injury include cardiac arrest, surgical complications, and near-drowning. Anoxic brain injury differs from traumatic brain injury in that traumatic brain injury results in bruising and swelling of the brain, whereas anoxic brain injury causes brain cells to die as a result of oxygen deprivation.

    Each year in the United States well over a million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The severity of a TBI can range from a mild concussion to coma or even death. At least 5.3 million Americans currently live with disabilities resulting from TBI. The leading causes of brain injuries are:

    • Automobile, truck crashes and bus collisions
    • Motorcycle accidents
    • Birth injuries
    • Slips and/or falls
    • Sports injuries

    Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injuries

    In many situations, individuals who have sustained a brain injury in an accident may not immediately be aware that they have suffered harm.   In fact, brain injury symptoms may not show up for days or even weeks after an accident occurs. 

    Some common signs of a TBI include:

    • Dizziness
    • Confusion
    • Headaches
    • Fatigue

    Left untreated, symptoms can escalate and lead to life long difficulties including cognitive delays, memory loss and personality changes.  Those suffering a brain injury may require assistance in performing the tasks of day-to-day living.
