The most common types of traumatic brain injuries

Any brain injury is a cause for concern, as it has the impact to alter your life in a variety of ways. Furthermore, without the proper treatment, a traumatic brain injury can be fatal.

There are many types of traumatic brain injuries, with these among the most common:

  • Concussion: It's not typically the most severe traumatic brain injury, but it can cause a variety of symptoms. Also, if not treated appropriately, concussion symptoms can linger well into the future.
  • Hemorrhage: Uncontrolled bleeding in the brain will result in symptoms such as vomiting and a severe headache. It can also cause a dangerous amount of pressure buildup, leading to brain damage and even death.
  • Edema: Swelling of the brain is a serious issue, as your skull isn't always able to accommodate the larger size. The increased pressure will cause your brain to press against your skull.
  • Skull fracture: Even though the skull is one of the strongest bones in your body, a fracture is still possible. When this happens, damage to your brain is more likely.

If you suspect a traumatic brain injury, such as after a fall from height at work, receive immediate medical treatment. Your doctor can run a variety of tests, such as an MRI and CT scan, for a clear idea of your injuries.

Once you understand your treatment schedule and prognosis, turn your attention to the cause of the accident and whether you're able to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. Workers' compensation can help you financially as you attempt to recover from your injury.
