Our experienced team of medical malpractice attorneys know how devastating a brain injury can be. Over the years, Elk & Elk has handled its share of traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases. Such cases are usually because of severe trauma. But what exactly constitutes a traumatic brain injury, especially one for which a victim would want to speak with an attorney about?
A traumatic brain injury may occur when the head or body is hit violently from an outside force. For example, this may occur in a car accident or as a result of falling down the stairs.
A few of the many potential symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include loss of consciousness, confusion, headache, dizziness, nausea or vomiting, changes in mood, pupil dilation, light or sound sensitivity, and seizures.
Varying degrees of damage may result from a TBI. Minor injuries may heal in a short amount of time. But a severe TBI may permanently affect the brain or result in death.
Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries affect each victim differently. Some changes that may occur as the result of TBI include:
- Difficulty remembering things
- Difficulty paying attention, thinking or learning
- Mood or behavior changes
- Vision or hearing changes
- Speech and communication changes
- Mobility changes
Sometimes, symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may not appear until days after the accident. This is why it is important for anyone who suffers a brain injury, no matter how serious it seems, to seek immediate medical attention.
