Motor vehicle accidents and serious brain damage

Whether people have been involved in a minor fender bender or have been victimized by a major catastrophic collision, they run the risk of receiving damage to the soft tissue of the brain. The delicate brain sits suspended within the skull cavity. Any type of forceful impact to the head, such as when the head hits the steering wheel or side window, could cause the brain to bounce into the hard bones of the skull. At The Martin Law Firm, we understand how serious brain damage can be, as well as the detrimental effects that it can have on a person’s life.

Depending on what part of the brain has been injured and how severe the impact was, people will often experience different symptoms of brain damage. For example, people suffering from mild brain damage may begin to have persistent headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, fatigue and have trouble concentrating. Moderate to severe brain trauma often involves tingling in the extremities, seizures and sensory deficits. People may be unable to acquire memories or understand language. While some cases of brain trauma are immediately apparent, others can take days or even weeks to present themselves.

Regardless of the degree of injury, it is crucial that people seek immediate medical attention for their brain trauma. The sooner the issue can be diagnosed and treated, the better chances the patient has of regenerating tissue to compensate for the damaged areas of the brain. Furthermore, as the brain damage continues to escalate, swelling may create pressure within the skull cavity that could potentially cause more damage.
