What signs of brain injury should I look for after an accident?

Brain injury resulting from an automobile accident or even a slip and fall is sometimes difficult for people to understand. In some cases, it may even be possible that a victim does not realize he or she has been injured because the symptoms can be elusive. Many times victims look normal and seem to speak normally, making the extent of injury difficult to determine.

Canadian brain injury statistics you should know about

A TBI, or traumatic brain injury, can occur when a person suffers a powerful blow to the head. It is a complex injury resulting in a broad spectrum of disabilities and symptoms. The injuries associated with TBI can be mild or severe, with symptoms ranging from dizziness or confusion to loss of mobility or cognitive function. In some cases, a TBI could lead to a coma, a persistent vegetative state or even death.

Even a simple fall can lead to brain injury

It is a fact that people all over the world fall every day, including citizens of Ontario. Most of the time, falls result in minor scrapes or no injury at all. However, sometimes a simple fall can lead to the unthinkable if you strike your head: serious injury to the brain. This is known as ABI or Acquired Brain Injury. Severe injuries to the brain are called TBI, or traumatic brain injury.
