What is a Brain Injury?
A brain injury always begins with a physical trauma to the head as a result of a violent blow or jolt from shaking or spinning. An object penetrating the skull, such as a shattered piece of skull or debris, can also cause a traumatic injury to the brain. The results can be serious, including brain dysfunction which can be temporary, long-term or permanent. More serious traumatic brain injuries can entail bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage.
Brain injuries often occur as a result of a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, or a sporting accident. If you’re injury has been caused by the wrong doing of another party, you may want to consider speaking with a brain injury lawyer in Toronto about your options.
What are the Symptoms?
Immediately after sustaining a brain injury, a person may experience a loss of consciousness or a few moments of confusion. This is usually followed by other symptoms such as a headache, ringing in the ears, loss of balance, blurring of vision, and nausea.
A brain injury victim can become sensitive to light and to loud noises, have short-term memory loss, difficulty finding words, and can lose their train of thought easily. Difficulty concentrating, processing information, and organizing the day is common. He or she may also experience major or minor mood swings, irritability, and sleep disturbance.
Brain injury symptoms can also sometimes occur in a mind that still functions well on other levels. The injury can often be subtle whereby a casual observer cannot see the symptoms but a spouse, friend or relative may detect them quickly. Realizing that he or she cannot do what he or she used to do, a victim can experience frustration, loss of self-esteem, and often depression.
