Common Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries
The brain is one of the most important and delicate parts of the human body. Not only is the brain integrally involved in sending and receiving messages or signals to control voluntary movements like walking, but it is also responsible for directing many unconscious processes, storing and retrieving information, and much more. When an accident results in a traumatic brain injury, the victim may experience a number of side effects that are likely to impact every area of his or her life.

Types of Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries include a number of conditions that are caused by a bump or blow to the head that disrupts normal brain function. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports there are nearly 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries each year in the United States. The following are representative types and effects of traumatic brain injuries:
- Memory loss
- Cerebral contusions
- Increased intracranial pressure
- Compromised motor control
- Loss of sensory abilities
These are only a representative few of the concerns associated with a traumatic brain injury and it is important that you seek legal counsel so that you can seek financial compensation that you may be due. There are likely to be significant medical bills, lost wages, and even temporary disability that prevents you from working.
