Traumatic brain injuries—more commonly known as TBIs—often occur when an individual is involved in a car, truck, pedestrian, boating, slip and fall, or other accident. TBIs can range from mild to severe, and most of the time, recovery depends on the circumstances under which the injuries were sustained. In the mildest of cases, a patient’s recovery time could be as short as a few weeks. In more serious cases, however, the patient’s injuries and impairments could last a lifetime.
The effects of traumatic brain injuries cannot be predicted easily and symptoms can emerge long after the date of your accident. Early detection and treatment at a hospital or urgent care facility may prevent permanent damage and can start you on the road to recovery.
