Brain Injury and Boston AccidentsWhen a sudden impact or trauma occurs, the victim’s head can suddenly and violently strike an object. Objects can also pierce the skull and damage brain tissue.
Brain injury can also be suffered due to air embolisms or lack of oxygen. This type of damage often occurs in a medical environment such as in a hospital or on an ambulance. The injury may be due to medical malpractice, which is defined as negligence by a medical care provider.Regardless of the cause, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be moderate or severe in medical terms; however, the impact on one’s life in either case can be significant and chronic.
What to Do If You Suspect a Brain Injury
Symptoms associated with brain injury include headaches, confusion, dizziness, blurred vision, and fatigue, loss of memory and mood changes. In severe cases, victims can suffer a catastrophically debilitating injury, leaving them unable to speak or care for themselves.Medical attention should be sought immediately in any brain injury case so the patient can be stabilized to prevent further damage. The primary focus medically is to insure proper oxygen flow to the brain and entire body, and to maintain blood flow and proper blood pressure. In significant brain injury cases, rehabilitation often includes physical and occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and other psychological and social support systems.
