Orlando Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
Traumatic brain injury is a form of brain injury that is generally caused by sudden damage to the brain. There are two basic forms of traumatic brain injuries, “Closed Head Injuries” and “Open Head Injuries”. In the case of closed head injuries, injury is usually caused by a blow or bang to the head. This type of head injury is very common in auto accidents. A closed head injury in an auto accident can occur when a person’s head hits a vehicles windshield, dashboard or steering wheel during a crash. An open head injury is the type of brain injury that occurs when an object enters the brain and causes damage. This type of traumatic brain injury also occurs in car accidents when a loose object or fixed object pierces the head and injures the brain.
When someone is in a car accident many times a strike to the head during the accident can cause injury. Two types of injury can occur, the first which generally is very obvious when ones head is suffers a blow to the skull, causing it to fracture accompanied with bleeding. The second type of injury causes damage to the brain that can evolve over a period of time resulting from a blow to one’s head during an automobile accident. This type of injury is called secondary brain damage and would include brain swelling, seizures, and increased pressure within the skull.
An interesting fact is that over half of all traumatic brain injuries reported are from the direct result of a automobile accident. At The Jaspon Firm Jeremiah Jaspon is experienced in dealing with individuals that have been involved in automobile accidents that have sustained head injuries. Many times the injuries are significant and brain damage has occurred as a direct result of being in a vehicle during a car accident. On the other hand, many times someone simply receives a bump on the head. During the car accident they never lost consciousness and fail to seek medical attention right away. Sometimes a brain injury can go undiagnosed or undetected and many times is not related to a previous car accident. Bumps and blows to the head during a car accident are very common and many times lead to serious medical issues.
Typical symptoms and signs of a traumatic brain injury can include:
- loss of consciousness
- memory problems
- vomiting or nausea
- blurred vision
- ringing on ones ears
- slurred speech
- altered sleeping habits
- visual effects
If you have been involved in a car accident and had a strike or blow the head and experience any of these symptoms, you need to seek medical treatment immediately. Many times what seem to be simple symptoms can quickly turn into serious and sometimes even life threatening conditions!
