What should you know about traumatic brain injuries?.

As a victim of a car crash, you likely suffered head, neck or back injuries. They are the most common of injuries that crash victims experience. If you suffered through a head injury, that likely means you have brain injury, too.

The worse the injury, the more severe the repercussions. Thus, it is important to know how to identify and treat a traumatic brain injury.

Physical impacts of TBIs

Mayo Clinic looks into the impact of severe brain trauma. It can impact you on a physical, mental and emotional level. Many of these issues relate to one another, too. On a physical level, sufferers often complain of migraines, head pains and nerve damage. You might experience tingling, numbness or shooting pain. You may even experience sensory issues, like your vision blacking out.

Mental and emotional struggles

On a mental level, you may struggle with memory loss or retention. You could also suffer from brain damage that can affect your cognitive capabilities. A brain injury can make it harder to process emotions like stress and anger, too. This compounded by other factors can lead you to having strong emotional reactions and even breakdowns. Sometimes, these reactions seem to come out of nowhere, which makes them hard for you and your loved ones to cope with.

The healing process of a TBI varies greatly depending on the situation. It relies on your personal physical health before the crash and how severe the injury itself is. The best course of action is to follow your medical professional’s advice on how to proceed after the crash. As therapy, medication and time off work often cost a lot, you may want to also consider seeking financial compensation.
