Traumatic Brain Injury May Lead To Stroke

Brain Injury Could Lead To Stroke

Most people have heard about traumatic brain injury and more and more of us are coming to know someone who’s been affected by TBI. We get tidbits of information about how these injuries occur from our local news channel telling us about car accidents and boat accidents, or National News stories talking about soldiers returning home from war with brain injuries. Up until now we thought a brain injury was just that, but unfortunately we’re learning there’s a lot more to it than that.

“A recent study concluded that people who have a traumatic brain injury may be more likely to suffer a stroke…Dallas Brain Injury Lawyer

And while the chances of having a stroke are still small, incurring a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may be as big a risk factor as is high blood pressure, said study author Dr. James Burke.

While stroke risk is usually tied to older adults, about 20 percent occur in those under 65, said Burke, a research fellow in the neurology department at the University of Michigan Medical School. “Stroke is not typically associated with young people, and why younger people have strokes is not well understood.”

But when younger adults do suffer a stroke, the effects can be daunting.” By Barbara Bronson GrayBrain Injury May Raise Stroke Risk – WebMD

Few things are as scary as having a family member diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. 

With this new study adding the risk of a Stroke on top of a brain injury, it makes a very scary situation even more scary, if that’s even possible.

When a family member gets injured the first thing we think about is getting them the care they need to get them healthy. Now we need to be even more vigilante to get the best possible care so they not only get well, but they hopefully avoid even more calamity with the possibility of a stroke.

While the medical case is evolving, so to is life…

  • Responsible parties don’t often step forward
  • Insurance companies don’t always do the right thing by their customers
  • And none of it is convenient
  • or fair

Anyone in the US with a family member facing these circumstances will find this new study alarming. Residents of California and Texas may find it’s best to seek advice from a Dallas Brain Injury Attorney to help them navigate these troubled waters. Either way…the news keeps evolving when it comes to Brain Injury and TBI.
