Mild brain damage can cause serious damage

Brain injuries are involved in approximately 30 percent of all injury deaths in America, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Nearly 2.8 million people a year are hospitalized, visit the emergency room or die because of a traumatic brain injury. While many studies have been conducted to evaluate moderate to severe brain trauma and the effects this damage has on peoples’ lives, little has been done on mild brain trauma.

Identifying the signs of traumatic brain injury

When people are involved in car collision or a slip-and-fall accident, they may receive a traumatic brain injury as a result of the impact. In fact, any type of accident that results in a sudden and forceful impact to the head may cause damage to the delicate tissue located within the skull cavity. When the tissue hits against the hard skull bone, it can bruise, bleed and become inflamed. Immediate medical attention is key when treating brain damage. Continued swelling in the brain can build up pressure within the skull cavity and cause ever more damage. The sooner injured people receive medical treatment, the greater their chances are for recovery and for the prevention of further damage.
