What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by a violent blow, jolt, or bump to the head. An external force or object that penetrates the brain can also result in a TBI. These types of injuries are classified based on their degree of  brain damage, how they occur, or other features. For instance, whether only one area of the brain is affected or its entirety. 

What Causes a Brain Injury?

Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries occurring in White Plains that often result in TBI include the following: 

  • Slips and fall accidents – Examples include falling from a ladder, falling down the stairs, or tripping and hitting your head on the ground or a solid object.
  • Motor vehicle accidents –  For example, in a severe collision, the head may forcefully come into contact with the headrest or another part of the vehicle and cause the brain to hit the inside of the skull. 
  • Sports injuries – TBIs often occur in sports-related activities. Particularly in high-impact sports in which athletes are susceptible to concussions, such as soccer, boxing, football, baseball, lacrosse, skateboarding, hockey, etc. 
  • Violence – This includes domestic violence, assault, child abuse, gunshot wounds, shaken baby syndrome, etc.

What are Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Victims can suffer a wide range of symptoms, from physical to behavioral, that can affect them both emotionally and cognitively. Those often include: 

  • Loss of consciousness and/or a period of disorientation 
  • Confusion
  • Headaches
  • Frequent vomiting and/or nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Memory loss
  • Concentration problems

With severe TBIs, victims frequently lose consciousness for more than 30 minutes, and the following symptoms may be present: 

  • Seizures, spasms, and/or convulsions
  • Impaired coordination (e.g. difficulty walking, balancing, grasping, holding)
  • Slurred speech or garbled language
  • Inability to think clearly and/or focus
  • Emotional issues (irritability, frustration, agitation, depression)
  • Coma

Severe TBIs are a major cause of disability and death, especially in young adults and children. Due to the potential devastation they can cause, it is imperative to understand what options you have to recover financially after sustaining this type of trauma.
