What Are Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Brain InjuryIn a recent blog, 我们讨论了一项令人震惊的研究发现,99%的已故前NFL运动员的大脑都被捐赠用于科学研究. 研究结果支持了关于创伤性脑损伤的长期影响的持续讨论, 以及反复的头部创伤的严重后果. 作为一家律师事务所,它代表了许多在可预防事故中遭受脑震荡和其他严重头部伤害的受害者, including car accidents在美国,我们知道随之而来的后果难以预料,而且往往是深远的 traumatic brain injuries.

因为脑损伤的性质既有最初损伤的性质,也有对受害者的影响, they are classified based on their severity. 轻度创伤性脑损伤(mTBI)是指对头部的冲击或外力在30分钟内导致意识丧失和/或定向障碍. 它们也可能被称为轻微创伤性脑损伤,甚至脑震荡. 重要的是要记住,虽然它们被标记为“温和”,“这个术语只描述了最初受伤的严重程度,而不是对受害者影响的严重程度.

To help you better understand mild traumatic brain injuries, steps to address them, and how they relate to accidents, 十大电子游艺平台首选Biren Law Group的法律团队整理了以下信息:

  • Symptoms – Although they are called “mild,“这些类型的创伤性脑损伤仍然有可能对受害者造成毁灭性的后果, including serious psychological and cognitive problems, 这极大地限制了他们处理日常任务和享受日常生活质量的能力. 症状的持续时间和严重程度在很大程度上是一个无法预测的问题, and varies from patient to patient. 在许多情况下,症状在几天或几周内消失,但可能持续数月甚至一年以上. The most common symptoms include headaches, memory or attention problems, sensitivity to light or sound, difficulty sleeping, difficulty thinking, depression, and other behavioral or mood disturbances, among others. 事故发生后,有些症状可能不会立即显现, 或者可能需要几天或几周才能被受害者理解.
  • Always seek medical attention – Following any type of accident involving a head injury, 寻求及时的医学评估是至关重要的. 这样做可以确保医疗专业人员排除任何严重的问题, including bleeding in the brain, 并提供关于康复和治疗方案的建议. 症状并不总是在受伤后立即出现, 而是因为总有可能出现危及生命的并发症, you should never leave a head injury unaddressed. 立即就医不仅对你的健康至关重要, 但对任何人身伤害索赔也很重要,你可以选择起诉对你的伤害负责的一方. 保险公司迅速指出,受害者等待或推迟治疗的情况,是他们没有真正在事故中受伤的迹象, 即使受害者一直在受苦,或者认为他们可以避免去看医生.
  • Brain injuries can occur without an impact to the head -许多轻微的创伤性脑损伤是由头部钝器创伤造成的, 包括跌倒和机动车事故可能导致的创伤类型. 无论是否有软组织损伤也可能发生. Additionally, 受害者应该明白,他们可以在不直接影响头部的情况下遭受mtbi. When the brain is forcefully shaken, 它会在快速加速和减速后与头骨碰撞, resulting in injury. 这些类型的伤害在涉及鞭伤的车祸中很常见, 受害者的头会突然前仰后仰. Even if you did not hit your head in an accident, but suspect there might be injuries, you should mention this to your doctor.
  • Long-term effects -关于脑损伤的长期影响的新研究, 我们开始了解随着年龄的增长,受害者面临的重大风险. For one, 经历过一次轻微的脑损伤后,患者发生另一次脑损伤的可能性是之前的三倍. 研究还表明,mtbi与增加的严重说话障碍风险有关, movement, and learning, 以及神经紊乱和帕金森病等病症, Alzheimer’s, and ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

了解轻度创伤性脑损伤最重要的一点, or any head injury whatsoever, is that they should always be taken seriously. 当这些伤害是由于他人疏忽造成的事故造成的, 受害者应放心地寻求医疗照顾和治疗,知道他们有权要求赔偿其损失, including their pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages, among other damages.
