When diagnosing a traumatic brain injury (TBI), doctors typically categorize it as mild, moderate or severe. While a mild TBI may not sound that bad, it can lead to permanent disability, requiring a lifetime of medical care and unemployment. The symptoms of a mild brain injury are not always apparent right after the incident and can take days or months to surface.
If you or a loved one has recently been in an accident where there was trauma to the head or neck, it is important to immediately seek medical care.
