Traumatic Brain Injuries (“TBI”) usually result from a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body.  Some brain injuries, such as a concussion, are classified as mild, while others that involve massive amounts of brain damage or complete skull fracture are classified as severe.  However, these titles are very misleading as even the mildest traumatic brain injury can lead to life-long disabilities and consequences.

In many brain injury cases, there are no symptoms for several days or even weeks.  If you have been involved in any type of accident and experience one or more of the following symptoms you must immediately seek medical care:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Behavioral Changer
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Sleep Difficulties/ Disturbances
  • Trouble Concentrating
  • Memory Loss
  • Blurred Vision

How Do I Know If My Brain Injury Is Serious?

Regardless of the type of brain injury you suffer, it is possible that you may have life changing effects.  These affects are often devastating for brain injury survivors and their families. Those suffering from long term issues associated with “mild” traumatic brain injuries will incur costs over their lifetime that can make what seems like a small claim turn into a massive settlement.  However, if the traumatic brain injury is not identified by the right doctors and lawyers the victim will never receive the justice they deserve.

Many people who suffer “mild” traumatic brain injuries look and often move normally despite the fact that they do not feel normal.  These injured individuals may return to work, but most of the time, not earning what they would have prior to the injury. They often lose homes, cars and spouses before anyone realizes what is wrong with them.
