Denver’s Leading Personal Injury Attorney
Neither traumatic or non-traumatic brain injuries are minor impairments. They can cause major disruptions in work and home life, even social life. Once confirmed that you have a brain injury, of any kind, it is in your best interest to seek the medical attention required to care for and repair yourself. A brain injury that is not properly cared for may worsen over time. Even if you believe an initial impact to the head is not that bad, you need to think about the long-term consequences. Many traumatic and non-traumatic side effects introduce themselves over time.
No matter the circumstance, whenever you hit your head or objects fall on your head, you should have it checked out.
Examples of brain and head injury side effects:
- Decreased coordination
- Difficulty walking or sitting
- Erratic behavior
- Inappropriate behavior
- Increased distractions
- Issues communicating
- Memory loss
- Personality changes
- Slurred speech
- Vision problems
Motor-related accidents have been a leading cause of head and brain injuries for years. When a pedestrian, cyclist or motorcyclist is involved, who often have far less protection than a motor-vehicle driver or passenger would, the brain injuries incurred are often even more devastating.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury
A brain injury is any head injury that alters a person physically, emotionally or mentally. The two main types of brain injuries are traumatic and non-traumatic. Traumatic injuries occur by means of external forces and non-traumatic injuries originate internally.
Examples of Traumatic Brain Injuries:
- Car Crash
- Gunshot wound to the head
- Objects falling on the head
- Motorcycle accident
- Sports Injuries
Examples of Non-traumatic Brain Injuries:
- Alcohol or drug abuse
- Cardiac Arrest
- CO2 Poisoning
- Heart Attack
