Hit Your Head? Call Albuquerque’s Top Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when your head is hit hard enough that your brain is pushed so forcefully against your skull that it suffers swelling caused by internal bruising and possible tearing. These kinds of injuries are very complex and also often cause serious symptoms of varying degrees, disabilities and even death.
Symptoms can be short or long term and include:
- Changes in personality
- Impairment in speech and also language
- Loss of memory
- Lastly, paralysis/loss of bodily controls
Some of the main causes of brain injuries are car accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls and violent attacks. Although we may not have any control over some of these incidents, just wearing a protective helmet when snowboarding or skiing, or riding a motorcycle or bicycle would significantly lower your odds of incurring a serious brain injury if you were to fall or be involved in an accident. ALWAYS wear protective headgear when engaging in these types of activities!
