A traumatic brain injury can be the result of a blow to the head or body as a result of a motor vehicle accident. The severity of the brain injury can range from “mild brain injury”, in which there is an altercation or disruption in mental state or consciousness, to “severe brain injury” which can involve bruising, bleeding or other physical damage.
Although most mild brain injuries are resolved within a year, there is always the possibility that some may never recover, and may be left with one or more of the following physical symptoms: dizziness, headaches, fatigue, lethargy and an altered sensitivity to light or noise. Cognitive symptoms, such as short-term memory loss, issues with attention or concentration, and difficulty multitasking, can also be associated with a brain injury. Brain injuries can also cause several emotional changes, such as mood swings, irritability and quickness to anger. The effect of these symptoms can result in the victim of the brain injury to be perceived as different, and can affect the victim’s day-to-day activities.
