Hartford Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
Defending Victims in Hardfort, CT - Call (860) 866-1024
One of the devastating consequences of personal injury is serious
brain injuries. Known as traumatic brain injury (TBI), these intracranial injuries occur when the head receives a forceful blow. Although sometimes called head injuries, these injuries only refer to damage done to the brain, not solely the head. Traumatic brain injuries are one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. They can be sustained from
slip & fall accidents,
construction accidents, abuse, and much more. Sometimes they can occur from high speeds and acceleration (such as a roller coaster) without a physical blow. Pressure to the blood vessels within the brain can burst leading to internal bleeding and damage.
If you are worried that you or a loved one has sustained a TBI, there are some symptoms that you could be on the lookout for. Sometimes they may appear days after the initial injury, especially in cases of mild injury. Victims may be nauseous, go into seizures, have affected sleep or not be able to wake up, their coordination may be impaired, or they may suffer from confusion. If you have noticed any of these symptoms, your first step should be to contact a medical professional immediately. Even if you think that your injury or accident was not very serious, your condition may only become worse.
