Signs of a Brain Injury

Accidents can cause many different types of injuries, but one of the more serious injuries a person can suffer is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBIs are usually caused by a strong blow to the head. Concussions are an example of a common type of TBI.

Accident types that could cause head injuries include sports-related incidents, falling objects at a workplace or construction site, a trip-and-fall incident in which your head strikes an object, and car accidents.

These injuries can seriously impact your cognition and your daily functioning, and they can be difficult to recognize. It’s important that you learn to identify brain injury symptoms, and if you’re experiencing any of them, you should seek medical attention right away.
