What You Need to Know About Traumatic Brain Injury From the Car Accident Lawyers at Nagle & Associates, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

While auto accidents can result in all types of injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are a common and quite serious concern for many Winston-Salem motorists. In fact, statistics show that more than half of all TBI is related to auto accidents, which is why the acclaimed car accident lawyers at Nagle & Associates want all clients to be fully aware of the damaging effects of TBI.

With an extensive background in personal injury claims, attorney Carl Nagle and his team of legal professionals have the experience necessary to provide quality guidance to every client. They’ve also seen firsthand the ramifications of things like drunk driving accidents and other dangerous behaviors, which is why they strive to keep drivers all over North Carolina safe when behind the wheel.

TBI occurs when the skull makes contact with a rigid stationary object, such as a vehicle’s windshield or steering wheel. While TBI can be accompanied by fractures or penetrations of the skull, this is not always the case. Accidents involving great force can cause the brain to make contact with the firm interior of the skull, which can result in internal bleeding and contusions.

As for symptoms associated with TBI, they are often categorized as mild or moderate to severe. Mild symptoms can include a feeling of fatigue, dizziness, irritability, and memory loss among many others. Moderate to severe TBI can be identified by loss of consciousness (which can last a few minutes to several hours), vomiting, seizures, numbness in fingers and toes, confusion, and coma. In both types of TBI, receiving appropriate medical attention in a timely manner is essential to ensuring lasting damage or even death does not occur.
