TBIs from Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

What to Know About TBIs from Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are very serious personal injuries which could be caused by Albuquerque trucking accidents. In fact, 18 wheeler wrecks are more likely to cause TBIs than other types of auto accidents. This is because of the heavy weight and significant force behind large commercial vehicles which cause powerful impacts. TBIs from Albuquerque trucking accidents usually result in debilitating and permanent injuries. Victims with TBIs may have to spend years in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and other types of treatment care. Unfortunately, the brain does not heal like a broken bone and victims with TBIs may never regain full control and cognitive functioning.

Symptoms of TBIs from Albuquerque Trucking Accidents

A traumatic brain injury is a very serious type of personal injury. In severe cases, a TBI is a very obvious injury with profound symptoms. Where identifying a TBI becomes more difficult is when the injury is mild or moderate. Even mild TBIs can result in permanent injuries and have a disabling effect. Moderate TBIs can result in the loss of employment or difficult with everyday tasks, including basic hygiene. Thus, level of severity of a TBI should be reported to a healthcare provider and immediately treated in the best way possible.

But in order to go get treatment, you need to know what the symptoms of a TBI could be. Here are the four categories of symptoms that could be brought on in TBIs from Albuquerque trucking accidents:

Physical Symptoms

The most obvious symptom is the symptom you can easily measure. Massive headaches and migraines that come and go, or come and stay, are obvious signs that your brain has suffered some type of injury. Blurry vision is another sign that your brain is injured, particularly in the back (occipital lobe) or middle of your brain in the area of the optic nerve. Other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, balance issues, and extreme fatigue are also physical symptoms of a TBI.

Sleeping Issues

Most people know when they do and do not sleep well. A TBI can cause a person to sleep abnormally long or have trouble getting to sleep at all. Any abnormal sleep behaviors should be reported to a doctor after any auto accident.

Thinking and Memory Problems

This is a subtle symptom that can be difficult to detect, but once you notice it the symptom will be obvious. Cognitive issues such as trouble thinking, thinking slow, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty remembering new information are all signs of a TBI.

Emotional and Mood Swings

If you are having any changes in emotional status such as irritability, anxiety, anger, depression, or other fears, this could be a sign of a TBI. Any issues with mood swings or difficulty regulating feelings could also indicate serious TBIs.
