Traumatic Brain Injury and Automobile Accidents

Automobile accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TMI) in adults under seventy five years of age. TMI results from a bump or trauma to the head and affects over 1.7 million people annually.

Symptoms of TMI include headaches, nausea, slurred speech or confusion. They may not appear until weeks are the accident. The fact that the onset of symptoms is not readily apparent, combined with the fact that the skull does not have to be cracked or damaged, makes TMI difficult to immediately diagnose after an accident.

The best course of action after any automobile accident is to ensure that you receive a thorough medical examination. If you believe that you or a loved one has suffered from TMI after an automobile or other accident you should contact a personal injury attorney with experience in brain injury.
