The effects of brain injury damages

Brain injuries happen to victims in and around the Dallas area in a variety of ways. This can include car accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, construction accidents, oil rig accidents, slip and fall incidents, and more. Here, we want to specifically focus on the effects of a brain injury on the victim.

According to the Mayo Clinic, mild traumatic brain injuries will typically only affect a person’s brain cells temporarily. Concussions are considered mild traumatic brain injuries. However, more serious traumatic brain injuries can result in torn tissue, bleeding, torn tissue, bruising, and other damage to the brain. This can lead to long-term complications or even death for the victim.

Dallas brain injury victims may need extensive care

When we look at the symptoms of a severe brain injury, we can see why a brain injury victim in the Dallas area may need extensive care after their injury occurs. In many cases, these injuries prevent the brain injury victim from working or enjoying their daily life activities.
