Did you know that brain injuries are the leading cause of death in people under the age of 20? Brain injuries are also very common for people of all ages involved in car, truck, or bike accidents. Traumatic brain injuries can happen to anyone, at any time. The following blog post will discuss how to recognize the signs of a TBI as well as what steps you should take if you or someone else has suffered from one.

The brain is made up of the brain stem, cerebral cortex, and cerebellum. The brain stem controls basic bodily functions like heart rate and breathing, which are important for survival. When someone suffers a brain injury to their brainstem, they may have trouble with motor skills as well as speech or language comprehension.

Cranial nerves control different parts of the brain. When they are damaged, people may suffer from difficulty with vision or hearing and have trouble when it comes to taste and smell sensation.

A brain injury can cause any combination of these symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Bruising around the head or neck area
  • Confusion about what time it is; where you are; or who you are
  • Dizziness
  • Vision problems, like double vision
  • Hearing loss

What should I do after a traumatic brain injury?

If you’re suffering from a brain injury after an accident, it’s important that you contact a brain injury attorney as soon as possible. They can help in the event that your insurance company is denying coverage for brain injuries by using their knowledge of brain injury law.

If you or someone else has suffered from brain injury, it’s important that you contact a brain injury lawyer to help in the event your insurance company is denying coverage due to their lack of understanding of the long-term effects of brain injuries. Brain stem problems can cause motor skills and language comprehension difficulties; cranial nerves controlling different brain parts can cause problems with vision and hearing sense; brain injuries may also result in a headache, bruising around the neck area, confusion about what time it is or where you are, dizziness, double vision, difficulty understanding speech.

  • Brain injury attorneys know how to handle brain injury law so that your insurance company doesn’t deny coverage for brain injuries.
  • Brain injury attorneys are important if someone has brain damage. They can help in the event that your insurance company denies coverage for brain injuries because of their knowledge of brain injury law.
  • Cranial nerves controlling different parts of the brain may result in problems with vision and hearing sensation; head or neck area bruising, confusion about what time it is, dizziness, or brain injury symptoms like headache and double vision. Brain injuries may result in any combination of these brain injury symptoms that can be different from person to person.
  • -Seek an MRI or CT scan if your medical provider recommends one.

If you’re suffering a brain injury after an accident, contact a brain injury attorney as soon as possible for help with insurance coverage if your insurer is denying brain injuries.

If you or someone else has suffered from a brain injury, contact an attorney for help with brain injury law and to make sure your insurance company doesn’t deny coverage. Brain stem problems can cause motor skills and language comprehension difficulties; cranial nerves controlling different brain parts can result in vision or hearing sense problems; brain injuries may also result in a headache, neck bruising, confusion about what time it is or where you are. Brain injury law can be complicated and brain injury attorneys know how to navigate this for their clients.

When someone suffers from traumatic brain injury (TBI) they should contact an attorney as soon as possible because TBI cases are often complex and technical.

Insurance companies will sometimes deny coverage for people with TBIs–but brain injury attorneys have in-depth knowledge about how to pursue a claim which can lead to adequate compensation for your brain injuries.

A TBI may lead to short- or long-term health problems

According to the Center for Disease Control, depending on the severity of the injury, those who get a TBI may face health problems that last a few days or the rest of their lives. For example, a person with a mild TBI or concussion may experience short-term symptoms and feel better within a couple of weeks or months. And a person with a moderate or severe TBI may have long-term or life-long effects from the injury.

A person with a possible TBI should be seen by a healthcare provider. Your healthcare provider may have treatment to help speed your recovery.

  • Most people with a mild TBI or concussion can recover safely at home following a medical check-up
  • People with a moderate or severe TBI may need ongoing care to help with their recovery
