Learn About Traumatic Brain Injuries

Not all injuries to the head are considered traumatic. For example, cuts and bruises on the head from a minor accident is nothing to worry about. However, more serious accidents can cause increasingly concerning head injuries. Specifically, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) have the most devastating effects on the victim.

Traumatic brain injuries can cause noticeable differences in the victim, including the following:

  • Changes in his or her behavior
  • Changes in his or her cognition
  • Changes in his or her emotions

TBIs can present as mild, moderate, or severe. Depending on the severity and location of the head injury, a victim of a TBI may display symptoms such as:

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Impulsivity
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Loss of short-term memory
  • Mood swings
  • Seizures
  • Vision impairment or loss

Sometimes, a victim may even slip into a coma while their body tries to heal itself. This injury can often lead to permanent damage that greatly impacts the individual’s ability to work or even function normally. Fortunately, though, TBIs rarely cause death, although it is possible.
