Brain Injury Archives

Brain injuries, regardless of their cause, can have significant present and future consequences for victims. Bruising, swelling and tearing of the brain can lead to permanent impairment or injuries that require long-term hospitalization and therapy. This can create a large financial toll on victims and their families and they should seek any compensation available to them to help cover the associated costs.

Brain Injuries in Infants Can Have Lifelong Consequences

The birth of a child is an exciting and happy occasion, and all parents hope that their children will be healthy. Unfortunately, injuries can happen at birth or soon after. Perhaps the most devastating of these injuries is a brain or head injury that may lead to permanent brain damage in an infant child.

Traumatic Brain Injury Linked to Increased Alzheimer's Risk

Traumatic brain injuries are some of the most devastating consequences of a motor vehicle accident. TBIs can lead to debilitating symptoms such as severe headaches, cognitive problems and even personality changes. In addition, a new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience shows that a single TBI can greatly increase a person's risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.The study, which was performed using rodents and post-mortem samples from Alzheimer's disease patients, discovered that even a single TBI can reduce the availability of particular proteins that have been known to combat an enzyme linked to Alzheimer's. The results of this study could lead to the development of drugs that can zero in on this mechanism, and ultimately slow down the advancement of Alzheimer's disease.

Car Accidents Can Cause Traumatic Brain Injury

In recent years, many Americans have learned about traumatic brain injury from media reports on veterans returning from war and former professional athletes who suffer the consequences of TBIs long after sustaining an injury on the field. TBIs also affect amateur and student athletes as well as victims of car accidents.
