The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes (NINDS) states that a closed head injury may be very difficult to recognize and diagnose due to the fact that current imaging technology does not register these injuries in a reliable manner. A severe brain injury is a traumatic event for the accident victim and the victim's family, especially when the injured person's personality changes, which is a common symptom. Surgery is often an urgent need in order to remove leaking blood and damaged tissue and prevent death or further damage to other areas of the brain.
Brain injuries are common occurrences in:
In certain cases, the accident victim may be able to move normally and speak normally, yet be unable to function as he or she did before their accident.
More severe brain injuries may result in more obvious symptoms such as:
- Severe loss of cognitive ability
Since the brain governs all basic functions of the body, emergency surgery may be necessary to prevent death depending upon the location and extent of the injury. These injuries are expensive to treat and are very often life-changing.
