Understanding The Impact Of Brain Injuries
The brain is a highly complex and highly sensitive organ. But for those who have sustained head trauma, noticing the effects on the brain can be difficult. Sometimes, the symptoms of brain injury may be mild or not immediately visible after an accident. Often times, it is not until friends or family see unusual behavior that an accident victim will seek medical attention. At this point, permanent damage could already be done.
Did You Suffer A Head Injury At Work In Texas?
It is important that all head injuries must be treated with seriousness. If you suffered blunt force head trauma or otherwise injured your head in a workplace accident, it is important to seek medical attention right away. You may have a brain injury and not know it. Only a trained medical professional can give you a proper diagnosis.
Unfortunately, many employee benefit plans do not allow for proper medical evaluation after a head injury. Instead, the plan assumes if a person appears uninjured, then he or she is fine. This assumption can have devastating effects on victims. If left undiagnosed and untreated, brain injuries can cause lasting problems and disabilities, including:
- Double vision
- Loss of coordination
- Decreased function of motor skills
- Changes in speech or loss of speech
- Difficulty hearing
- Neurological defects
- Changes in behavior
- Memory problems
