How to Identify Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are some of the most debilitating injuries one can suffer. Complications from TBIs often last a lifetime, and it’s not just the victim’s quality of life that permanently changes. Families of the victim often have to assume caretaker roles, affecting their day-to-day lives as well.  Traumatic brain injuries are incredibly complex because symptoms vary widely from one person to another and depend upon the nature of the injury. Traumatic brain injuries generally follow a blow to the head and can lead to a diverse array of symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry or double vision
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Memory loss

Some symptoms may not appear until days or weeks after the trauma, so it’s important to see a doctor and consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an auto accident, workplace accident, or other accident.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, you owe it to yourself to seek compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering.
