Hallucinations Resulting From Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are sometimes the result of severe impact to the head and are often associated with serious neurological damage. TBIs can cause a range of troubling and even disabling symptoms, one of which includes hallucinations. Although rare, individuals who experience a TBI, aespecially when two are sustained in rapid order, may experience psychotic episodes following the incident. Since individuals involved in rollover accidents are at a higher likelihood of sustaining TBIs, these individuals may be particularly susceptible to developing psychosis.
Hallucinations & Other Symptoms of TBIs
Psychosis is often difficult to diagnose because it must first be determined if the hallucinations are actually coming from another psychiatric disorder unassociated with the TBI. A much more frequent complication associated with TBI includes chronic headaches, especially migraines, which are sometimes reported to be associated with the following forms of hallucinations:
- Visual hallucinations
- Olfactory hallucinations
- Gustatory hallucinations
- Auditory hallucinations
When TBI results from a rollover accident and the victim develops troubling issues like psychosis, skilled legal representation may be critical in gaining financial restitution.
