What constitutes a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury or closed head injury results when there is either an actual blow to the head or a force that causes and acceleration-deceleration movement of the head. The brain strikes the inside of the skull causing either localized or generalized damage. It is not necessary for a person to lose consciousness to suffer a brain injury, despite this contention from most highly compensated insurance company doctors. Closed head injuries occur from a number of possible causes, including automobile accidents, falls, and heavy machinery accidents.
How are Traumatic Brain Injuries diagnosed?
Traumatic Brain injuries are diagnosed by all types of physicians, including neuropsychologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons. A person can suffer a significant brain injury even though and MRI or CAT scan show normal results. A diagnosis of a brain injury is often made by a neuropsychologist who administers a written battery of tests to the patient. The results of a properly administered and interpreted test are viewed as an authoritative diagnosis of the injury. Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries may not be apparent directly after an accident, and may take days, weeks or months for symptoms to be evident.
