Seek Immediate Medical Attention

If you suspect that you have experienced a head injury, seek immediate medical attention. Regardless of the severity of the injury, any sudden trauma can change how the brain functions. Brain injuries are often hard to detect. Symptoms are different for each person and can occur right away or even days/weeks after the injury. They can also be difficult to sort out as they are similar to other health problems. It is important that you are seen by specialists with state of the art diagnostics and treatment. If traumatic brain injuries are left untreated, there is more potential for long-term complications.

The Most Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

  • Falls. Falls leading to a traumatic brain injury can take place at a location that is not well cared for, such as an icy or defective sidewalk. Falls can also take place as a result of improper supervision of the elderly.
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents. Whiplash, which involves a severe jerk to the head, can cause a traumatic brain injury. Or a traumatic brain injury can occur if the head hits the steering wheel, dashboard, or airbag.
  • Struck by/against an object. Traumatic brain injuries can occur after being struck by something or while playing contact sports such as football or hockey. Workplace or construction accidents can also involve being struck.

Concussions

The most common type of brain injury is a concussion which can occur after violent head movement or a blow to the head. The sudden movement can cause the brain to move in the skull, creating chemical changes and sometimes stretching and damaging brain cells. Concussions are linked to short and long-term physical, emotional, and mental injuries. Signs and symptoms include headache, nausea, fatigue, confusion or memory problems, sleep disturbances, or mood changes.

Post-concussion syndrome is a relatively common complication of concussion recovery. It is the persistence of concussion symptoms beyond the typical course of recovery for a concussion. The symptoms of post-concussion syndrome often mirror the symptoms of a concussion, and often fall into four categories:

  • Cognitive (short-term memory loss, trouble concentrating, difficulty multi-tasking, lack of focus, slow processing)
  • Sleep (Sleeping more than usual, trouble falling asleep)
  • Mood/behavioral (anxiety, panic attacks, depression, irrational anger, increased sadness, irritability)
  • Physical (headache, dizziness, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, blurry or double vision, fatigue)

Traumatic Brain Injury Recovery

The brain is extremely vulnerable to additional injury following a concussion or brain injury and sustaining multiple concussions greatly increases the risk of long-term brain damage. Some traumatic brain injuries can be mild and result in a brief change in cognitive ability while others can be more severe. Regardless, every brain and every patient are different so there is no set plan for brain injury recovery. Treatment may require physical and cognitive rest, physical therapy, frequent visits to the doctor, rehabilitation exercises and more.

Client Reviews of Our Bridgeport, CT Personal Injury Attorneys

    Friendly, professional and VERY responsive!

    Friendly, professional and VERY responsive!

    Attorney John Buckley was highly recommended to me by quite a few people and upon my first meeting to discuss my case, I knew immediately that I was in good hands. He took his time to explain everything to me in great detail and stayed in communication throughout my entire case. His staff was also extremely friendly, professional and VERY responsive! I actually never had to reach out about my case because they over-communicated with me from beginning to end. My accident was very unfortunate, but I’m extremely grateful I was working with Attorney Buckley through it all! I highly recommend this law firm!!!

    Thorough, caring, and patient.

    I don't have the words to describe how wonderful John Parese was to work with. He took my family and I under his wing during a difficult time. He was by our side for 3 years while I was treated. He was thorough, caring, and patient. He was always there to answer questions and made us feel that he was in our corner. John explained our options and walked us through the process many times. It was WAY outside of my comfort zone to go to litigation, but he believed in me and my case. He was phenomenal in court and I was very proud to be part of his team. We are forever thankful and would recommend him to anyone!
