Representing Individuals Who Suffered from Traumatic Brain Injuries

Not every head injury will result in a brain injury, however, a brain injury is almost always caused when pressure or force is applied to the head. The brain injury intensity will vary based on the type of head injury an individual suffers from. In some instances, a head injury will be classified as a traumatic brain injury. Such an injury is commonly caused by a fall from a high point or by being hit in the head with a heavy object.

A traumatic brain injury can be associated with a closed head injury when blunt force trauma takes place to the head but there is no splitting of the skull or penetration. A penetrating head injury is when bone fragments penetrate the skull, which can result in an infection.

In a work environment, a traumatic brain injury can be due to falling from scaffolding, equipment issues or debris hitting the head or falling on the individual. With the head impact, swelling of the brain can take place as well as nerve fiber damage and blood circulation interruption.

Types of Head Injuries

There are several types of head injuries that can create a brain injury. A skull fracture is one example. A skull fracture will create bleeding, swelling or bruising. The fracture may not be visible to the naked eye. Another issue is an intracranial hemorrhage. This is when a blood clot or bleeding takes place inside the skull, causing damage to the brain.

A traumatic brain injury can also include a cerebral contusion, where the cerebellum is affected, causing attention and memory problems. A concussion can also take place, where the individual is unaware of their surroundings for a temporary amount of time, feeling confused, disoriented or experiencing memory loss.

Understanding the Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury

The severity of the brain injury will dictate the physical and mental effects an individual will face, in the short-term and long-term.

Physical effects can include:

  • Headaches
  • Lack of Energy
  • Blurred Vision
  • Speech Issues
  • Dizziness
  • Problems Sleeping
  • Hearing Loss
  • Balance Difficulty

Mental Effects may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Lack of focus
  • Impaired decision-making
  • Concentrating difficulty
  • Depression
  • Memory loss

Can a Traumatic Brain Injury be Treated?

A traumatic brain injury can be treated. In mild cases, pain reliever is provided and rest will help relieve symptoms. In more severe cases, surgery may be needed along with rehabilitation. In severe cases, rehabilitation will involve working with specialists to assist in relearning physical and mental skills. Such skills can be lost during the injury and rehabilitation may take months or years to see functions relearned in their entirety.
