In 2012, New Findings Shed Light on Traumatic Brain Injuries

By Grant Law Office on January 11, 2012

Traumatic brain injuries include any injuries to the brain caused by an accident or other event. One of the most talked-about and highly common types of traumatic brain injury is the concussion, in which the brain is bruised from a blow to the head. New research on traumatic brain injuries could lead to new awareness, prevention, and treatment options for these life-altering injuries, according to a recent article in Chicago Magazine.

In 2011, researchers began examining the results of years of studies of the effects of repeated blows to the head on athletes. They found that untreated traumatic brain injuries can lead to chronic conditions and/or serious problems with memory, concentration, chronic headaches, and even personality changes. Repeated concussions are linked to brain disorders like Alzheimer’s and dementia in later years. It seems researchers have little doubt that traumatic brain injuries can have serious, lifelong consequences.

A traumatic brain injury can occur in almost any type of circumstance. A car accident can easily cause a concussion or similar brain injury. So can a workplace accident, if a worker is hit on the head or hits his or her head on a stationary object. Slip and fall accidents are a common source of traumatic brain injuries as well.
