Common Types of Head Injuries and Their Symptoms
Head injuries range in severity, and can be as minor as a temporary concussion or contusion or as serious and life-altering as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). If yours or your loved one’s injuries involved penetration of the skull, you may suffer from the lifelong effects of a TBI or CTE, which can include the following:
- Loss of interpretation of your senses;
- Loss of vision;
- Loss of hearing;
- Loss of sense of smell or taste;
- Attention deficit;
- Intolerance of light;
- Loss of memory;
- Decreased ability to concentrate;
- Reduced processing speed;
- Speech issues;
- Problems with reading and writing;
- Difficulty understanding the spoken language;
- Problems with being understood;
- Sleep disorders;
- Paralysis; and
- A host of emotional issues.
As you can see, everything on this list is life altering. If a victim experiences multiple symptoms, which most people with TBIs or CTEs do, they may have trouble retaining a job, sustaining healthy relationships, or leading a fulfilling life in general.
CTE and TBI are just two types of brain injuries one may sustain in a motorcycle accident. For a comprehensive understanding of the various types of head and brain injuries and their symptoms, visit the Brain Injury Alliance of Utah.
