Ohio brain injuries: What is the long term impact?

As one of our Ohio readers, you probably stay current with the news from your local area. If you watch closely enough, you know that many people are injured every year in a variety of accidents. In some cases, a brain injury is the end result.

While some brain injuries do not have a lasting impact, this is not always the case. There are times when a brain injury has a long-term effect on the person, causing him or her trouble for an extended period of time.

To better understand this, let's examine some of the long-term side effects of mild traumatic brain injury:

-- Seizures

-- Depression

-- Aggression

-- Thoughts of suicide

-- Visual motor and ocular problems

-- Progressive dementia

-- Parkinsonism

These are just a few of the many long-term problems associated with mild traumatic brain injury. As you can see, all of these are extremely serious, with some having potential to lead to a person's premature death.

Anybody who suffers a brain injury, or is caring for somebody with this health concern, should understand the impact it will have now as well as in the future.

Even if the impact of a brain injury appears to go away, there is no way of knowing for sure if symptoms will arise again down the road. This is why it is essential to receive the best possible medical care.

Those who are injured in an accident that isn't their fault should consider their many options for recovering compensation for their injuries and other damages.
