Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

A number of car accidents in New Jersey often result in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which can be life-changing, not only for the victim, but also for their family. Brain injuries can also result from slip-and-fall accidents, construction accidents, sport-related injuries, bicycle accidents, workplace accidents, and more. Even though great advancements have been made in recent years with regard to brain injury treatments, many symptoms are permanent. An injured victim may never be able to return to their pre-accident state again.

The types of symptoms suffered by a brain injury victim will depend upon the severity of the trauma and the location of the damage. For example, damage to the front of the brain (frontal lobe) could result in paralysis, loss of flexibility, thinking, an inability to focus, personality changes, and difficulty expressing language. Damage to the back of the brain (occipital lobes) could result in issues with vision, colors, reading, and writing.

Victims of head trauma to the side of the brain (temporal lobes) may have difficulty recognizing faces, understanding words, or exhibit aggressive behavior. When someone suffers trauma near the back and top of their head (parietal lobe), they may have trouble distinguishing right from left or have difficulties with hand-eye coordination.
