If you or a loved one have suffered a traumatic brain injury due to someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, contact a personal injury attorney right away. These injuries are serious, and sometimes fatal, and you should not have to bear the burden of paying your medical costs if the accident wasn’t your fault.
A traumatic brain injury occurs when a hard, blunt force leaves physical trauma on the head that interrupts brain function or damages the brain. A traumatic brain injury such as a concussion, can be mild, with mild symptoms that aren’t much more than a nuisance, or severe with life-changing symptoms that debilitate you and can leave you paralyzed or immobile.
All traumatic brain injuries should be taken seriously, but especially those that occurred due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. Read on to learn the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries, and remember that you are entitled to speak with a lawyer to seek compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered.
What Are The Symptoms Of A Mild Traumatic Brain Injury?
The most commonly occurring mild traumatic brain injury is a concussion. Concussions occur after car accidents, motorcycle accidents, a bad slip and fall, or any other incident where someone’s head can be thrust against a hard object, the floor, the door of a car, or any other surface that could damage the brain.
Symptoms of a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury can include:
- Pressure in your head
- Ringing in your ears
- Nausea or vomiting
- Fatigue, grogginess
- Mood swings or irritability
- Difficulty speaking, balancing or walking.
Even a mild traumatic brain injury can have serious consequences. Some people who suffer a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury need to take days, weeks, or even months off of work while they recover, and some even experience long lasting symptoms that take years to go away. Even mild cases of traumatic brain injuries should be taken seriously, especially if the injury was caused due to someone else’s negligence. You shouldn’t have to pay for your medical care, or suffer lost wages, all because someone else was careless and caused this injury. At Church and Page, we understand how hard it can be to recover from an injury of this nature, and will fight hard for you to get the compensation that’s rightly owed to you.
What Are The Symptoms Of A Severe Traumatic Brain Injury?
When more serious accidents occur, traumatic brain injuries can happen. The symptoms of a severe traumatic brain injury can be debilitating, and can change an accident victim’s life forever. If you or a loved one have suffered a car accident, bicycle accident, slip and fall or other incident that lead to any of the symptoms below, call a lawyer to discuss getting compensation for what you suffered.
Symptoms of a severe traumatic brain injury can include:
- Loss of consciousness, from seconds to hours
- Dilated eyes
- Nonstop nausea, vomiting
- Debilitating headaches, ringing in the ears
- Extreme mood swings, irritability
- Clear fluid running from ears or nose
Those who suffer severe traumatic brain injuries can be affected for the rest of their lives. Severe traumatic brain injuries require extensive periods of time to recuperate, and most accident victims will need to take extensive time off of work to recover and heal. Other traumatic brain injury victims may not be as fortunate, as an injury this severe can be fatal.
Regardless, any accident victim who has suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence should not have to pay a high price for an accident that someone else caused. At Church and Page, we’re sensitive to traumatic brain injury victims and their families, and will stop at nothing to earn you the compensation you deserve after an injury of this severe nature.
