TBI’s (Traumatic Brain Injuries) are some of the most complicated and involved cases due to the fact that the brain itself is such a complex and fragile organ. A brain injury can stem from anything, including: automobile, aviation, and boating accidents, as well as medical malpractice. Complications that stem from brain injuries often do not manifest themselves until much after a trauma or accident occurs. This makes finding the source of such a complication difficult to characterize and isolate. Furthermore, many of the examinations performed in hospitals do not always reveal the extent of the injury one may have actually suffered. Typically, hospitals perform CT scans or a regular MRI to ascertain whether a hematoma or a brain bleed exists. What the hospitals and some doctors don’t tell you is that there are closed head traumatic brain injuries that exist that may not be discovered through these tests. Sometimes it takes additional more extensive testing to reveal the true injury one may have suffered. Sometimes it may require undergoing an MRI with a much stronger magnet to reveal this trauma. In addition neuro-psychological testing can be used to illustrate changes in an individual’s behaviour that resulted because of such a trauma.
