Not all injuries from car accidents are easy to see. Broken bones and lacerations are obvious at the scene, but for those who suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI), the injury may easily be overlooked initially. It is so critical for anyone injured in an accident to visit a doctor as soon as possible if they have any symptoms. Even minor impact accidents can leave a person with a TBI, having a serious impact on an individual’s life.
TBIs can range from mild to severe. A person may, or many not, lose consciousness.
Below are some side effects of both mild and severe TBI, which can not only leave the individual frustrated, but also cause great pain for their family:
- Problems remembering things
- Difficulty thinking properly
- Mood swings
- Attention deficit issues
- Impairment of major cognitive functions
- Prolonged period of comatose
- Difficulty speaking properly
- Loss of ability to use limbs
- Inability to think clearly
Unfortunately, these effects can require additional assistance for the victim, leaving them feeling a loss of independence. This is aside from the general physical pain and emotional suffering. This type of injury can leave a great impact on the person’s job, social life, and general well-being.
