Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries lead to both immediate and long-lasting effects on our clients and our clients’ families. Today, we know more than ever about traumatic brain injuries. Still, brain injuries are one of the most difficult to diagnose and can sometimes be overlooked in the medical treatment provided shortly after a crash. Adding to this difficulty is the fact that every brain injury is different. Each area of the brain controls different function, so damage to different areas of the brain can cause different consequences. And while some brain injuries may present with a skull fracture or laceration, many brain injuries are not visible. Often, a person involved in a serious crash or impact will suffer from a diffuse axonal injury (or shearing), which is caused by rapid acceleration and deceleration of the brain, causing the nerve cells to stretch and compress. These types of injuries can have a significant impact on the cognitive function of the people who suffer from them. If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious crash or impact, traumatic brain injury should always be a consideration, as we have learned recently that a person can suffer a brain injury without even losing consciousness.
