The brain is arguably the most significant organ in a person’s body,
as it acts as the main control center for all bodily functions and cognitive
abilities. From controlling key life-sustaining bodily systems to emotions
and memories, it goes without saying that the brain is pretty important.
This also means that any injuries to the brain can have life-altering
consequences and vastly impact the way a person leads their life.
brain injuries (TBI) are some of the worst types of injuries a person can sustain, as
they can alter the way the brain works and cause permanent debilitation.
While research has shown that the brain has an incredible ability to compensate
for brain damage, brain tissue does not regenerate over time – making
it extremely difficult for individuals to fully recover from their injuries.
Traumatic brain injuries are classified into two categories:
1. Penetrating injuries: Injuries of this type involve an object piercing the skull and actually
making contact with brain tissue.
2. Closed head injuries: Objects that make forceful contact with the head causes primary and secondary
damage to the brain. Primary damage occurs at impact, while secondary
damage develops with time after the trauma is experienced.
Bruises, blood clots, lacerations, and damage to nerve tissue in the brain
can cause a variety of symptoms, including fever, headaches, memory loss,
confusion, sensory perception issues, dizziness, insomnia, and uncharacteristic
changes in behavior. More serious damage can result in coma, convulsions
and seizures, reduced cognition, loss of communication skills, loss of
coordination or even death.
In many cases, traumatic brain injuries occur as the result of another
party’s negligence or careless actions.
Drunk driving collisions,
dangerous products, and
medical malpractice are just some of the many ways in which an individual can suffer a life-altering
brain injury through no fault of their own.
