Brain Injury Archives

What are some indicators of right hemisphere brain damage?

The way that brain damage impacts a person depends to a large degree on what part of the brain is injured. Damage to the right hemisphere will often show up with a few standard signs or indicators, though, it is important to note that brain injuries are not the same for everyone. Still, a few things to look out for include:

Crosswalks can cause pedestrians to be injured

Some studies claim that crosswalks actually make it more likely for pedestrians to be injured while crossing the street. As a result, many places have started removing crosswalks. This doesn't mean there aren't always signals, but that the lines are not painted on the pavement.

Domestic violence can lead to brain injuries

Brain injuries are often associated with injuries caused by accidents; however, that isn't the only way that brain injuries can occur. Some victims of domestic violence can suffer from brain injuries. Sadly, these victims are often left to deal with the effects of the injuries without being able to seek medical care.

What is Post Trauma Vision Syndrome?

After a traumatic brain injury, some patients experience something known as Post Trauma Vision Syndrome. This is a very serious condition that can have a dramatic impact on a person's ability to read. Naturally, this can also then limit the person's options for work, travel, recreation and much more.

Traumatic brain injuries are sometimes life-changing

Suffering a catastrophic injury is something that most people try to avoid by practicing safety in everything they do. There are some instances in which even the safest person will get into an accident that leads to a catastrophic injury, such as a brain injury. These injuries can be devastating to the victim and the victim's family. One type of catastrophic injury that might occur in motor vehicle accidents and falls is a brain injury.

What are some other symptoms of traumatic brain injuries?

Brain injuries are unique in that many of their symptoms may not be readily apparent through casual observation. Unlike a broken arm or a severe burn, many brain injury victims may appear normal based on just their outer appearances. However, it's important to remember that your brain is also the reservoir of your personality. A car crash, motorcycle accident or even a slip and fall can sometimes cause injuries to victims' brains that can also adversely affect their personalities.
