Any type of injury to the head from an auto accident, significant fall, sports-related concussion, disease, or other accident can cause a traumatic brain injury. However, the effects of a brain injury may not be immediately noticeable since the human body is generally very resilient and may attempt to cope with the injury internally.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can have severe and long-lasting effects if not quickly diagnosed and properly treated. An issue arises, however, in cases of mild head trauma which do not visibly show signs of brain distress. Common signs to watch for if you or a loved one has suffered a head wound include:
- Subtle changes in demeanor
- Quickness to anger
- Flu-like symptoms (nausea, vomiting)
- Lack of concentration
- Decreased attention span
- Difficulty speaking
Severe brain damage is generally quite apparent both physically and mentally. Cognitive functioning may be affected, and, in some cases, a patient may need to undergo vocational therapy to determine exactly much cognition still exists.
Traumatic brain injuries may irrevocably change an individual’s entire existence, and an experienced brain injury lawyer can ease the burden by helping you to pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent party who may have directly caused the brain trauma.
