Traumatic Brain Injury results from automobile crashes, when a person’s head hits an object with immense force. We all know that our brain is the most delicate and sensitive portion of our body and so even a slight blow can cause a serious damage. Moreover, the brain has very limited power to heal, and even if it does, it takes a long period of time.
In many instances, a traumatic brain injury is not diagnosed by a physician, because the patient fails to report on issues such as short term memory loss and personality change. Sometimes the issues of a brain injury may not appear immediately and may show its effects after many years of its occurrence.
If you or a family member is experiencing a brain injury due to an accident, even if it had occurred a long time ago, it is vital that you consult a doctor immediately, and keep the legal counsel.
