Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are two different kinds of TBIs, and your TBI can be classified as “open” or “closed.”  Open injuries happen when the skull has been fractured, from either a collision, fall or other type of accident in which the head violently connected with a hard object.

Closed head injuries do not need to involve a fracture or an open wound, but they can be just as serious as an open head injury because there can be blood clots in the skull or brain swelling.  Both types of TBIs can result in the victim’s life being changed permanently, and can cause then to suffer from paralysis, coma or even death.

Traumatic Brain Injuries Symptoms

Every person can incur different symptoms, and the symptoms can fluctuate over time.  For many people, a TBI can affect their neurologic, brain and cognitive functions.  It is imperative to seek medical attention as soon as you notice any of these symptoms, because it may be the difference in preventing further damage.

Victims of a traumatic brain injury can experience a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Change in temperament or personality
  • Coordination problems
  • Depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea
  • Persistent headache

Consequences of Traumatic Brain Injury

When a person suffers from damage to their brain, there can be incredibly serious consequences.  It is not uncommon for victims to suffer from permanent mental disabilities and long-term physical disabilities.  These injuries can severely impact the victim’s quality of life.  Consequences of a TBI can include:

Medical Evaluation for a Brain Injury

It is imperative that you receive a medical evaluation after you have suffered from a traumatic brain injury and during the evaluation, the physician will evaluate how the injury has affected your behavioral, physical and cognitive functions.  After determining this, the medical evaluation will need to establish how the brain injury is going to affect:

  • The victim’s ability to work
  • The types of financial compensation they may receive
  • If the victim is able to live on their own
  • What kind of treatment may improve the victim’s health

Medical evaluations should consider how the injury will impact the rest of the victim’s life.  There are many types of brain injuries that are debilitating, but there may still be options for treatment.
