Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are injuries that can be sustained in a number of various types of accidents. There are two types of brain injuries which include open head injuries and closed head injuries. Open head injuries occur when the skull is punctured whereas closed head injuries occur when an object hits the head. Both types can have devastating effects on an injured person depending on the severity of the injury.
There are numerous symptoms that can arise and affect the daily lives of the injured individual. Even the most seemingly minor head injury can have long term effects later on. Symptoms of brain injuries include, but are by no means limited to:
- Blurred vision
- Ringing in the ears
- Loss of consciousness and memory
- Mood swings
- Sleep disturbances
- Numb extremities
As time progresses, these symptoms can get worse, causing even the most basic daily tasks to become unmanageable. Additionally, those who have sustained an Arizona traumatic brain injury may require long term medical care, rehabilitation and in some severe cases, 24 hour round-the-clock care. Some individuals may not be able to return to work, therefore, the cost of medical treatment can skyrocket very quickly.
