The likelihood of a brain injury in any type of serious accident is very high. An estimated 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury every year in the United States.

Even if a person survives after a traumatic brain injury, the consequences of brain damage may require years of ongoing medical care, treatment and consistent rehabilitation, which in other terms, adds up to a whole lot of money.

COMMON BRAIN INJURY SYMPTOMS
Everything from a punch in a fight to a steering wheel in a car crash can cause a brain injury. While mild to moderate brain injuries may cause temporary dysfunction of brain cells, more serious brain injuries can result in bruising, bleeding, torn soft tissues, long-term complications and even death. Skull fractures, concussions, and brain hematomas—just a few of the more common brain injuries—may include the following symptoms:
- Sudden mood changes
- Chronic headaches or neck pain
- Persistent dizziness
- Blurred vision
- Loss of balance or light-headedness
- Difficulty remembering, concentrating, or making decisions
- Slow cognition
- Mental, psychological, or physical fatigue
- Blurred vision
If you experience any of these symptoms after an accident, you should immediately go to the emergency room. Even if you feel relatively okay, you may have bleeding in the brain that needs medical attention as soon as possible, to prevent further injury or death.
