Understanding Ohio brain injuries

It doesn't matter if you live in Ohio or another part of the country, nothing changes the fact that a brain injury could turn your life upside down.

There are many things that can cause a brain injury, such as a slip and fall accident or a motor vehicle crash. It is important to understand brain injuries. Often, this means comparing a healthy brain to an injured brain.

The Brain Injury Association of America defines an injured brain as follows: "When a brain injury occurs, the functions of the neurons, nerve tracts, or sections of the brain can be affected. If the neurons and nerve tracts are affected, they can be unable or have difficulty carrying the messages that tell the brain what to do. This can change the way a person thinks, acts, feels, and moves the body."

Along with the above, a brain injury can alter many of the body's internal functions, such as bladder control, regulating body temperature and blood pressure.

The Brain Injury Association of America, noting statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Injury Prevention, added that the leading causes of traumatic brain injury are falls, motor vehicle crashes, struck by events and assaults.

The cause of a brain injury does not matter as much as the injury itself. Understanding how the brain works, including what it controls, is an important part of recovering from such an injury.

A brain injury has the ability to change a person's life forever. This is why so many people who are injured by a negligent party consider their legal options.
