More than 2.5 million people will sustain a traumatic brain injury in the U.S. this year, according to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA). These injuries typically occur from a sudden blow to the head, a shock to the brain from a strong outside force, or another form of serious trauma. One, several, or all areas of the brain can be permanently affected, depending on the type of injury. And, in many cases, these preventable injuries are caused by the negligent actions of another.
There are several different types of brain injuries, including:
The severity of a brain injury will depend on a variety of factors, including the location of the injury, the age of the individual, how soon the individual receives treatment, whether or not the individual was conscious and for how long, and more. While some symptoms may be obvious immediately, others may not be apparent for days or weeks.
If you’ve suffered any one of these types of brain injuries because of the negligence of another person, contact our traumatic brain injury lawyers in D.C. today!
Many times, accident victims will fail to realize they have suffered a brain injury until hours, days, weeks, or even months after the incident. Sometimes, the delayed symptoms of a brain injury are not readily apparent. Different types of traumatic brain injuries can affect different parts of the brain, and they range considerably in severity.
Some of the most common symptoms of a brain injury include:
If you have sustained a brain injury, you might not have any symptoms right away. Some brain injuries will have more serious symptoms long after the initial impact. For example, the brain may slam into the skull, but only have internal damage. Without any external signs of damage, recognizing that a brain injury took place may be very difficult.
All brain injuries are unique, and the recovery process is different for everyone. That being said, victims with mild injuries often have the best chances for a full recovery, even though it can take time. The recovery process may be longer for those with more serious injuries and for victims who have experienced brain injuries in the past. A D.C. brain injury attorney from Simeone & Miller can help you get the medical treatment you need for a full recovery.
Despite the alarmingly high number of brain injuries, the causes of them are not as vast.
