Brain & Head Injuries
Physiologically speaking, your brain is essentially the command center for your body. Comprised of billions of neurons, the brain is responsible for controlling bodily movement, muscular function, behavior, and other functions. The brain could suffer damage that is irreversible or even fatal when a serious injury occurs.
Common head and brain injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Concussion or other head trauma
- Inability to control bodily functions
- Inability to speak clearly, hear clearly, or communicate properly
- Injuries to the face due to air bag deployment
In some instances, an accident victim can suffer debilitating burn injuries. Considered to be some of the most catastrophic injuries a person can endure, burn injuries require extensive medical treatment as well as rehabilitation care. In some cases, years of follow-up medical assistance is necessary.
Spinal Cord, Neck And Back Injuries
The spinal column is essential to keeping the human body upright and standing. The spinal cord is comprised of a complex system of nerves and other soft tissues that transfer signals from the brain to other parts of the body. When injury to the spinal cord or spinal column occurs, the body could be rendered partially or completely paralyzed.
Common symptoms of spinal cord, neck, or back injuries include:
- Paralysis, such as quadriplegia
- Loss of sensation or feeling in extremities
- Sacral, lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine injuries
- Disk slips and herniated disc injuries
Mental And Emotional Damages
Perhaps one of the most severe and long-lasting types of damage associated with serious accidents is emotional pain and suffering from psychological trauma. Many victims can suffer years - or even a lifetime - dealing with acute stress disorder. Others may suffer more debilitating anguish associated with post-traumatic stress disorder.
