Car accidents can cause serious long-term brain damage

If you have been involved in a car accident, you run the risk of receiving a number of injuries. Some injuries, such as broken bones and lacerations, may heal over time. Other inflictions, such as traumatic brain damage, may have long-term consequences. At McGowan & Cecil LLC, we understand that traumatic brain damage can cause serious difficulties in peoples’ lives. In some cases, you may be unable to return to work, perform daily tasks or enjoy the activities that you once loved.

Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by minor fender benders, as well as more severe collisions. Whether your head and neck are jarred or your head smacks into the steering wheel or side window, any forceful impact to the skull can cause damage to the soft tissue of the brain. As a result of the blow, the brain tissue may bleed, tear, bruise or swell. Immediate medical attention is the best route. Yet, you may not know that you have sustained a brain injury right away. As the brain continues to bleed and swell in the skull cavity, more tissue damage may occur.

While some effects of brain damage can be remedied by physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and medical treatment, permanent damage may occur. You may have trouble concentrating or focusing on tasks, planning and/or organizing activities. Furthermore, you may notice changes in your vision or hearing. You may even experience muscle weakness, tingling in the extremities or convulsions.
