California study finds another potential danger of brain injuries

As though there needs to be any other information to understand the seriousness of a brain injury, a UCLA study has come up with a theory to add to the scare of a head injury. It is possible that someone who sustains a head injury and loses consciousness is significantly more likely to suffer from Parkinson's disease.

The California study followed about 1,000 subjects, about a third of which whom had been diagnosed with the neurological disorder, and compared histories. Following are some of the specific findings of the particular study:

  • Subjects who reported having sustained head injuries and losing consciousness for more than five minutes were almost two times as likely to suffer from Parkinson's.
  • Subjects who lived closer to places where a pesticide called paraquat was used were more likely to have Parkinson's.
  • Subjects who fit into both of the above categories were most likely of all of the subjects to suffer from Parkinson's.

Many medical researchers are working day and night to try to identify the cause and therefore potential cure for the life-altering neurological disorder; thus this study.

Parkinson's disease not only leads to the tremors that most associate with the condition, but it can truly change a person's personality and mind. People with the disease seem to age more quickly and lose the ability to do some of the things that they love and were once extremely skilled in. It is a difficult disease to live with, for the people suffering from it and their loved ones.

This story relates to our personal injury blog because we help people who have sustained head injuries as a result of another person's carelessness. The treatment that is required for brain injuries is expensive. If an accident can lead to something as serious as Parkinson's down the road, trying to get a court to require a careless driver to pay for the injuries someone has already sustained seems like the very least that one should do.
