A traumatic brain injury is the result of a serious accident where the head received a significant blow. This could have occurred from slipping and falling, a serious car accident, or playing contact sports.
When a traumatic brain injury occurs, it is important to seek medical care and treatment. If this condition is left untreated, it can worsen and even lead to death. Upon medical examination, an individual will have their head injury rated based on the Glasgow Coma Scale. This scale measures how well the individual responds to various stimuli.
How do you tell if you have a traumatic brain injury? There will be specific signs and symptoms associated with the injury. The more pronounced the symptoms, the more severe the injury.
