Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can easily fall under the category of a catastrophic injury if it is severe enough. In the workplace, a TBI is often caused by
slip and fall accidents, falling objects, low obstructions over walkways, and equipment malfunctions. The brain is a delicate organ, and although it is protected by your skull, a blow to the head can easily cause TBI. If you have suffered a brain injury while at work, get immediate medical care to ensure that you are not at risk of more severe consequences. Then, consult with an
Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer as soon as possible to get started on a
workers' comp claim.
Symptoms and Dangers of TBI
Mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBI) are commonly referred to as concussions, which are head injuries resulting in bruising or bleeding within the skull. Concussions usually bring on slight to severe dizziness, nausea, and headaches. Unconsciousness is also possible, but usually lasts for less than 30 minutes in MTBI cases. Moderate TBI cases include amnesia lasting for one to seven days, and/or loss of consciousness for more than 30 minutes, but less than 24 hours. Any amnesia or loss of consciousness greater than these can classify the TBI as a severe case and could result in a coma or even a fatality.
