How Do I Know if I have a Brain Injury? Albuquerque Auto Accident Lawyer Shares Four TBIs

Any type of motor vehicle accident could cause significant injuries, especially motorcycle accidents or 18 wheeler wrecks. One of the most significant types of injuries from an auto accident is a traumatic brain injury, or TBI. The CDC reports that there are almost 3 million emergency department visits, hospitalizations, or deaths due to TBIs. Unfortunately, this is also one of the most difficult types of injuries to detect, treat, and cure. The problem is that a brain injury does not always show up on an imaging study. A brain injury is not like a broken bone that an x-ray will normally detect, or a torn muscle that an MRI scan will reveal. Although it is true that some traumatic brain injuries are immediately visible, many brain injuries may take months to show up on an imaging test. Other brain injuries may never show up.

Understanding Coup-Contrecoup Brain Injuries Caused by 18 Wheeler Wrecks in New Mexico

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a type of brain injury which results in serious and debilitating injury to a person. Sometimes these effects are temporary, whereas other times these effects are permanent or even permanently deteriorating. A common cause of TBIs are motor vehicle accidents, particularly with large commercial vehicles like 18 wheelers, big rigs, tankers, semi tractor trailers, double trailers, and other box trucks. While there are many types of TBIs, one common type is known as a coup-contrecoup brain injury which is likely to occur in high-impact collisions, particularly rear-end collisions.
