What's the risk of seizures after a brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can take several forms. Some are more severe than others. If you suffer a closed head injury there may be serious damage to the brain inside the skull, but no visible damage on the outside. Regardless, in addition to the injury itself there is the possibility that it can lead to secondary issues for some victims.

Getting facts on brain injury includes learning legal options

It seems that new findings about how the human brain works come down the pike every couple of months. We certainly know more today about neuroscience and what can happen if someone suffers a brain injury than we did just a few years ago. And chances are good that we will be hearing more about this serious matter during March because it is National Brain Injury Awareness Month.

Brain injury: Undiagnosed bleeding on the brain can cause death

Sometimes, motorists or their passengers in Alaska who are involved in car accidents might believe they are uninjured and refuse a trip to the hospital for a medical evaluation. However, even a low-speed collision can cause a brain injury that might only become evident hours or days later. The rapid whiplash movement of the head that is typical upon sudden impact of a collision causes the brain to smash against the inside of the skull, causing bruising or bleeding of the brain.

A concussion is a brain injury that can linger

Concussions are not limited to injuries on the sports fields. In Alaska and across the country, some of the most frequent car accident injuries are concussions. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury, and it can be mild or severe. The mistake many make is not to go for a medical examination after an accident if they have no apparent injuries, not realizing that the effects of concussions can linger.

Brain injury victims can pursue recovery of damages

Victims of motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents or assault can suffer catastrophic injuries. Brain injuries that cause life-altering damage can be the result of the negligence or recklessness of others. In Alaska, brain injury victims may be entitled to pursue financial relief through the civil justice system.
