Preventing Chicago Traumatic Brain Injuries

OVER $1 BILLION IN RECOVERIES FOR OUR CLIENTS

Whether due to a car wreck or a fall, one of the most devastating possible effects of any accident is a traumatic head injury. A traumatic head injury (THI) is the result of suffering an impact to your head that causes damage to your brain, often leaving you with serious symptoms that can last months and years, if not the rest of your life.

Undergoing a THI can make it extremely difficult to live your life the way you want, limiting your ability to work and making it hard to perform everyday functions. When it comes to a THI, prevention is much easier than recovery, making it vital that you learn how to avoid the possibility of suffering this type of injury.

Here are some helpful hints on how your family can prevent traumatic head injuries and guidance for when you should call a traumatic brain injury lawyer.

Typical Effects of a Traumatic Head Injury

The most dangerous thing about suffering a THI is that symptoms of the injury do not always immediately present themselves following an accident. In fact, it is quite easy to mistake a THI for more common injuries, making it important to examine some of the symptoms you should look out for.

One of the biggest indicators of a THI is difficulty thinking and problems with your memory. Secondly, a prolonged headache that is not affected by normal treatment methods can be a THI warning sign. Finally, for more serious traumatic head injuries, drastic changes in personality are a common symptom to be aware.

If you experience any or all of these symptoms following an accident, you should immediately consult a doctor about the possibility of a THI.

Automotive Safety

Because of their severity, most THIs are the result of car accidents. Although the risk for a head injury is higher in more serious wrecks, even minor accident can result in blows to the head and a THI. Protecting proper car safety is one of the best ways to avoid a traumatic head injury and preserve your cognitive functioning.

First, if you have children, it is imperative that you follow all safety guidelines for their seating, including using child safety seats up to the age of nine, at least. Secondly, all adult passengers, front seat and back, should wear a seatbelt at all times in a vehicle. Taking a few moments to buckle up will keep you safe and help you prevent a traumatic head injury.

Avoiding Serious Head Injuries in Everyday Life

It is also possible to suffer a head injury when going about your daily life, whether performing common household tasks or enjoying some outdoor activities. In your home, you should try to limit the risk of falls by removing obstacles that can cause tripping and use slip reducing materials in your bathroom. When it comes to play, you should make sure that everyone in your family wears helmets when involved in high impact activities like biking, skating or playing contact sports.

With a little forethought, you can keep your family safe from traumatic head injuries in most scenarios.

Even with the right safety tips at your disposal, it is still possible to suffer a THI through no fault of your own. If you’ve suffered a traumatic head injury due to the negligence or actions of another, then you should consider hiring a personal injury attorney from the Disparti Law Group Accident & Injury Lawyers
