A traumatic brain injury is caused as a result of a hit or blow to the head. Following a TBI, it is almost always required to seek immediate medical treatment as this type of injury severely disrupts normal brain function. Mild TBIs are erroneously left untreated as people mistakenly label them as minor and unimportant injuries which can go away on their own. However, there are hidden dangers to even the slightest brain injuries, including memory loss, depression, insomnia, and migraines, which may indicate long-term consequences of this seemingly mild injury.
Common symptoms to look out for include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Temporary loss of consciousness
- Ringing in the ears
Which Workers Are at Highest Risk of a TBI?
Though commonly associated with sports injuries or car accidents, traumatic brain injuries occur quite often in certain industries and workspaces. Unsurprisingly, construction workers have the highest risk of sustaining brain injuries, ranging from mild to fatal.
