The Long-term Effects of Multiple Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which include concussions, are serious conditions that require immediate treatment for the various symptoms that may result. While many victims of concussions or other types of TBIs recover over time, they may not realize the increased risks that exist if they happen to sustain subsequent brain injuries in their lifetime. If you are struggling to cope with any aspect of having a TBI then speak to a brain injury attorney to discuss different ways to recover compensation.

It has long been recognized that sustaining a second head injury before the first one has healed can be dangerous and even life-threatening. However, the medical community is only beginning to understand the risks of sustaining multiple concussions over time—even after the patient has completely recovered from the previous concussion. Examining the conditions of former athletes who played contact sports for years has shed light on the subject. The following are some of the potential long-term effects of multiple brain injuries:

The early onset of cognitive disorders can significantly affect a multiple concussion victim’s quality of life, ability to work, relationships, and more. In addition, CTE is a highly dangerous condition that can lead to suicide—and can only be positively diagnosed after death.

It is important to realize that while multiple concussions are common in certain types of sports, athletes are not the only ones who may suffer multiple brain injuries throughout their lives. The following, if experienced more than once, may also lead to multiple brain injuries and resulting long-term effects:

Many people, over the span of their life, experience more than one of the above accidents. Repeated accidents can result in multiple brain injuries over the course of time and lead to devastating effects and losses.
