What is a Brain Injury?
A brain injury occurs when the brain is damaged by a sudden trauma to the head or body. The severity of a brain injury is often measured using the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS), which assigns a numerical value to a patient's level of consciousness. A score of 13 or lower is considered a severe brain injury.
A person with a brain injury may experience:
- Loss of consciousness
- Difficulty with motor skills
- Vision problems
- Difficulty with coordination
- Memory loss
- Difficulty with attention and/or concentration
- Difficulty with language skills
- Difficulty with reasoning or judgment
The symptoms of a brain injury can be subtle, which is why it is so important to get medical attention after any accident. Even if you do not feel any symptoms, your medical team may discover a brain injury during routine tests. In many cases, a person does not realize they have a brain injury until weeks or months after the accident.
What Causes Brain Injuries?
Brain injuries can be caused by a wide range of accidents, including motor vehicle collisions, slip and falls, and workplace accidents. Many brain injuries are caused by auto accidents, which are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the United States.
Symptoms of a Brain Injury
If you suspect you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury, you should seek medical attention right away. The symptoms of a brain injury can be subtle and may not appear until days after the accident. Common symptoms of a brain injury include:
