What Is a Brain Injury?
A head injury usually happens after a penetrating wound or a crushing blow.
These types of injuries are often the result of preventable accidents
and involve a rip, crush, or shear of an individual's brain tissue.
A severe head injury can be deadly and often results in permanent physical
and/or mental disabilities.
In many cases, a severe head injury involves an open wound where the skull
was crushed or fractured. Treatment of open head wounds often requires
long-term hospitalizations and rehabilitation services. Although long
strides can be made during the rehabilitation of such injuries, it is
rare that complete rehabilitation is possible. Closed head wounds can
also be severe in nature and result in permanent disabilities.

Recognizing the Signs & Symptoms of a Brain Injury
After an accident, it is important that you seek medical attention right
away. While some injuries are readily apparent, others—including
the symptoms of a
traumatic brain injury—may not appear until days, weeks, or even months later.
Some of the most common symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Feelings of confusion or disorientation
- Nausea, vomiting, or dizziness
- Fatigue, drowsiness, or loss of balance
- Blurred vision or ringing in the ears
- Problems with memory or concentration
- Sudden changes in mood or behavior
The symptoms and permanent effects of severe brain damage can vary from
individual to individual. In fact, virtually no area of a person's
body is immune from being affected by an injury of this type. Many victims
of severe traumatic brain injury suffer from changes in their thinking,
speech patterns, sensation and emotions. In fact, numerous brain injury
victims report serious depression and even suicidal thoughts. Severe brain
injuries can also result in an increases risk of contracting epilepsy,
Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and other conditions.
Even in cases of brain injuries that are not severe, various debilities
can develop after a Texas resident suffers prolonged, repeated traumatic
brain injuries that are minor in nature. The effects of small brain injuries
can add up over time and result in fatal or catastrophic health consequences.
The existence of a severe brain injury may be difficult to prove in a Texas
personal injury case; however, with the assistance of expert neurological doctors, it
may be possible to develop solid documentation to support an individual's
claims in court.
