Brain injury can trigger brain inflammation, causing brain damage

People who suffer from traumatic brain injury in Massachusetts sadly may experience its negative effects long-term. These may include poor memory and even mood swings. However, a huge misunderstanding exists regarding the nature of brain injuries and exactly how a brain injury causes chronic types of degenerative issues.

Researchers not any closer to treatment for brain injury

According to recent statistics, an estimated 1.5 million Americans suffer a head injury every year. Traumatic brain injury is a serious health problem, particularly for young men. This type of injury can happen to anyone, in Massachusetts or elsewhere, and researchers are constantly looking for effective treatments.

The closed head injury victim suffers life-changing restrictions

Brain injuries present demanding challenges for preparation of personal injury negotiations and settlement with the wrongdoer's counsel or insurer. Closed head injury in Massachusetts and throughout the country is not always easily proved, and must be established instead by medical inferences and circumstantial probabilities. In such cases, neuropsychologists and similar practitioners are sometimes used to establish a physiological connection with the particular symptoms that the injured victim is suffering.

NFL and retired players settle lawsuit claiming brain injury

Traumatic brain injury remains a bit of a mystery. That may be why 4,500 retired NFL players entered into a $765 million settlement with the NFL as compensation for brain injuries from repetitive concussions. The lawsuit was filed by the former players to obtain compensation for the symptoms of brain injury experienced in retirement and attributed to years of repetitive head concussions. In Massachusetts and elsewhere, the scientific information about traumatic concussion injury remains limited, but there are growing signs of a direct link between concussion and long-term cognitive and psychiatric consequences.
