Traumatic brain injuries are a common occurrence after sudden accident. These injuries are damaging, and often show up significantly later after the initial accident. Due to the difficulties in diagnosing brain injuries, they can also be hard to treat. This type of injury can happen after most accidents, including motor vehicle, motorcycle or trucking accidents. Some common characteristics of traumatic brain injury includes:
- Memory loss
- Trouble sleeping
- Loss of senses including sight and smell
- Chronic pain
- Loss of bowel control
Thankfully for most patients, traumatic brain injuries are the result of a specific life event and rarely shows up on its own. This helps medical professionals identify the cause of the injury and the source.
In terms of those specific events, the following represent examples of some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries:
- Automobile accidents
- Blunt force
- Pedestrian accidents
Claims for negligence can be filed for those suffering from traumatic brain injury. If the accident that resulted in the injury stemmed from carelessness or neglect, the client may be entitled to collect compensatory and punitive damages.
