Seek immediate medical attention:
Brain injuries can be among the more serious injuries an individual can experience. Trained medical professionals can most often run tests and determine if you have suffered such an injury. It is important to seek immediate medical attention for a possible brain injury. It is a common mistake not to seek medical attention or report injuries, and the factor of time can cause what would be a mild injury to develop in severity. Even if you think your injury is minor, it is always better to see a physician.
What causes a brain injury?
The most common and perhaps obvious causes of brain injuries is receiving a blow to the head. However, even if no direct blow to the head occurs, a brain injury can result from various kinds of accidents where the brain internally collides with the inside of the skull. This can occur in a low impact auto accident where the injured person is jolted violently.
Some of the of Brain Injury:
1. Loss of consciousness at the time of injury
2. Memory loss (to varying degrees) immediately preceding or following the injury
3. Alteration in mental state following the accident
Even if you do not experience any common symptoms of a brain injury, it is always best, whenever in an accident, to seek medical attention and evaluation.
Effects of Brain Injury:
Injuries to the brain can have vast and alarming negative effects on the injured person's daily life. Oftentimes after receiving a brain injury, the injured person can have drastically decreased physical and mental ability, while other times symptoms are barely noticeable.
How a can help:
