The severity of traumatic brain injuries

Posted by Brad Ponder | Jan 11, 2021 | 0 Comments

Traumatic brain injuries (or TBIs) are some of the most severe you may ever sustain. These types of injuries happen often in car accidents, but there are other negligent-related acts that can lead to a TBI. These types of injuries vary in terms of severity, but the fact remains they can have a significant impact on your life.

Below, we'll explain the severity of traumatic brain injuries and how they can impact your life.

Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries

Despite the term “mild,” these brain injuries are very dangerous. One example of a mild TBI is a concussion, which can occur in any situation where your brain moves around within your skull, causing significant trauma.

A mild traumatic brain injury may lead to consciousness loss that lasts a few seconds, nausea, and numerous other problems.

Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries

A moderate traumatic brain injury may result in you losing consciousness for a few minutes, but it can also cause problems with balance and coordination and short-term memory loss. A moderate TBI can also lead to headaches that worsen over time.

Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries

Severe traumatic brain injuries are the worst you can sustain, as the symptoms can last a lifetime, and have a significant impact on your life. Some of the symptoms associated with a severe TBI include:

  • Seizures and convulsions
  • Loss of consciousness lasting hours
  • Loss of motor function
  • Vision and hearing problems

Severe TBIs can last a lifetime, and in many situations, it can cause cognitive problems, sleep problems, or even a coma.
