Do you have a serious brain injury?

Brain injuries can have a variety of symptoms, ranging from mild to severe, depending on the location and extent of the injury. The exact part of the brain that was injured makes a big difference, and symptoms can be vastly different from case to case.

At the same time, not getting prompt treatment can be very detrimental and potentially even fatal. It’s important to identify the injury and seek out medical professionals to get both a diagnosis and a treatment recommendation.

Symptoms to Look for in Traumatic Brain Injury

One potential issue is that brain injuries can be closed-head or “invisible” injuries. You can’t see the damage, so you need to know what symptoms to look out for after a fall, a car accident or some other such event. Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with brain injuries:

  1. Physical symptoms: Brain injuries can cause a variety of physical symptoms, including headaches, nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light or sound and balance problems.
  2. Cognitive symptoms: Injuries can affect cognitive function, leading to symptoms such as memory loss, confusion, difficulty concentrating and impaired reasoning and judgment.
  3. Emotional symptoms: Brain injuries can also affect a person’s emotional state, leading to symptoms such as depression, anxiety, irritability and mood swings.
  4. Behavioral symptoms: Injuries can cause changes in behavior, such as impulsivity, aggression and social inappropriateness.
  5. Motor symptoms: Brain injuries can affect a person’s motor function, leading to symptoms such as weakness, tremors and difficulty with coordination.
  6. Sensory symptoms: Finally, brain injuries can also affect a person’s sensory function, leading to symptoms such as numbness or tingling in the extremities or a decreased sense of smell or taste.

It’s important to remember that all of the symptoms inspired by a brain injury may not show up immediately after the injury occurs. It is possible for serious symptoms to develop gradually over time. Additionally, as noted above, symptoms may vary depending on the patient, the cause of the injury, the severity of that injury and the part of the brain where it is located.

Have you been injured due to someone else’s negligence or intentional conduct? If so, you may benefit from seeking financial compensation for lost wages, medical bills and many other costs traditionally associated with the complexities of serious brain injuries.
