Brain injury victims face a variety of challenges

As Brain Injury Awareness Month comes to a close, it is important to share some of the complexities that brain injury victims struggle with here in Michigan. A head injury can happen in a second and it can leave scars that will last for a lifetime. Brain injuries are difficult to diagnose and treat, as they are not yet fully understood by the medical community. What is known about brain injuries is that they are life-changing and that they can result in very expensive challenges.

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, more than 1 million people seek treatment for brain injuries each year. While this number seems very high, this is because any number of events can cause head trauma--from car accidents to slip and falls to workplace accidents to unintended results of medical procedures, for example.

Technically, a brain injury happens when an impact of some sort causes the brain to crash against the skull. This collision can result in bruised or torn brain tissue, brain bleeding or temporary or permanent dysfunction of injured brain cells, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Medical professionals frequently tell people to visit a doctor after any head blow. This is because the symptoms of a brain injury are not always immediately noticeable, and a timely diagnosis can be very important for treatment and to prevent further damage. Symptoms of brain injury include, but are not limited to, nausea, depression, mood swings, memory problems, trouble balancing, headache, fatigue and sensitivity to sound or light.

For many victims, and their families, the next stop after the doctor's office is to see a lawyer. Many head injuries are caused by the negligence of another person, such as in a car accident, workplace accident or assault. As such, it is often possible to hold that person responsible with a personal injury claim, which can make it possible for victims to obtain compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation and the other effects of the injury.
