The Effects of a Head Injury or Traumatic Brain Injury
In many situations, an injured individual may not even know that he or she has sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Also sometimes called a closed head injury, some of the more common symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Loss of memory
- Loss of speech
- Individuals behaving strangely or unlike themselves
- Personality changes, depression and irritability
- Paralysis or loss of sensation on one side of the body
Spinal Cord Injury
Paralysis is one of the most obvious signs of a spinal cord injury. However, there are many subtle symptoms of spinal cord and back injury. For instance, a broken vertebra, which may not be discovered for some time following an accident, can damage your spinal cord, leading to partial or total paralysis. Seek medical care without delay after an accident or incident and do not be afraid to be aggressive with your doctor. Your health and future may hang in the balance.
