What is a Brain Injury?
Brain injuries are caused by any impact or a sudden jolt to the head that disturbs normal brain functioning, which can have far-reaching effects.
Even a mild brain injury can result in a loss of consciousness for up to 30 minutes, and 15% of mild brain injury victims will experience symptoms for up to a year or more.
These less-severe injuries may take days or weeks to cause symptoms, making them often overlooked in initial medical examinations after an accident. Symptoms of a mild brain injury can include:
- Difficulty with coordination
- Changes in mood or depression
- Excessive or difficulty sleeping
- Struggles with completing thoughts
- Loss of senses
- Nausea or seizures
A serious brain injury can leave you with physical problems such as impairment of movement, balance or speech. If you have incurred a severe brain injury, you are also at risk of experiencing memory problems, difficulty paying attention, and personality changes.
Both the physical and mental repercussions of brain injuries can impact your work, quality of life, and personal relationships.
