Brain Injuries Can Impact Daily Living
Posted on December 30, 2016 by James A. Swartz
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that brain injuries are the leading cause of death among people ages 18 to 35. Most of these injuries result from household falls, auto accidents and common incidents. In Wisconsin alone, it is estimated about 6,000 residents suffer from brain injuries and 50,000 live with the effects of brain injury each year.
Brain injury symptoms include headaches, memory loss and sleep disorders that can interfere with everyday living, including jobs and personal relationships. Unfortunately, after suffering head trauma, many people do not go see a doctor, thinking that the simple remedy is to get some rest. However, often a more serious brain disruption can be undetected without medical intervention. Indications that you or a loved one should see a doctor after such trauma include loss of consciousness, blurred vision, or any negative effect in thought process (such as “seeing stars”).
Remember, you only have one brain, and taking care of it is a key to a long and healthy life. http://www.swartzlaw.com/brain-injuries.html
