Traumatic brain injuries can arise from an automobile, truck or motorcycle accident, gunshot wounds, falls, or other events. A brain injured person may have suffered a concussion or struck his head on an object such as a windshield or rear view mirror of a vehicle. Sometimes, however, seemingly minor injuries such as a bump to the head or a fender bender can actually be major events with permanent closed-head injury that necessitate lifetime care and treatment.
Symptoms that can be related to a closed-head brain injury include loss of short-term memory, personality changes, mood swings, the inability to multi-task, depression, difficulty processing information, loss of energy, balance issues, double vision, the inability to find the right words to communicate, speech problems, difficulty sleeping, and post-concussion syndrome.
