Brain Injuries and Disability

Serious injuries can result from accidents. A traumatic brain injury is life-altering, and it not only affects the accident victim but their family as well. A violent jolt or blow to the head or body can leave you with a traumatic brain injury, which might include bruising, bleeding, torn or damaged tissue, and other physical damage to the brain.

Depending on the severity of and the nature of the brain injury, your plan of treatment could involve rest, surgery, and prescription drugs. There are various symptoms that can result from a traumatic brain injury:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Headache
  • Drowsiness or fatigue
  • Speech problems
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Changed sleep patterns
  • Loss of balance

  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Changes in taste and smell
  • Mood changes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory difficulty

Severe brain injuries will lead to long-term disabilities that will include social problems, communication difficulty, behavioral changes, cognitive difficulties such as problems with memory or learning, and sensory issues.
