Brain injuries and the potential of subsequent anosognosia

Many victims of car accidents in Ontario are left with impairments that they might not link to the crash. Head injuries can occur with or without a blow to the head. Even without impact, the whiplash movement of the head during a collision can cause brain injuries. The smashing of the brain against the inside of the skull can be as damaging as a direct impact of the head striking the windshield or another object.

Brain injuries can leave victims with post-concussion syndrome

Many people in Ontario do not realize that a concussion is a traumatic brain injury, and they fail to seek medical care after a car accident, fall, violent assault or head impact on a sports field. Sometimes, such brain injuries heal quickly, but it could leave a victim with post-concussion syndrome. It is unpredictable because not all concussion victims develop PCS, and symptoms can appear soon after impact or they can be delayed for weeks or months.

Brain injuries in children could have long-term consequences

Child play could be rough, and although most Ontario parents may not want to be overprotective, they are advised to become familiar with signs of concussions. Sometimes, a blow or bump to the head that seems insignificant could cause brain injuries. Concussions are never to be regarded as minor because they are mild forms of traumatic brain injuries that could have long-term consequences.

Brain injuries could have severe financial consequences

Some victims of car accidents in Ontario suffer injuries that change their lives in ways that most other people cannot even imagine. Traumatic brain injuries can turn a victim's full, satisfying life, surrounded by friends and family, into a life ruled by doctors' appointments and therapy sessions. Gradual withdrawal of friends is not unusual, only because they do not know how to deal with the stark changes.
