Common Signs of Brain Injury
We Stand for the Rights of Injury Victims
While the most severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI) often have an instant and devastating impact, serious brain trauma can go unnoticed for quite a while. However, within a few weeks or months after an accident, you can start developing symptoms which indicate a potentially serious injury. In addition to the life-altering physical and mental effects, the cost of a brain injury includes extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation expenses, and in many cases, the loss of your ability to earn income.
If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, you owe it to yourself and your family to pursue fair compensation. At The Accident Injury Law Center, our Orange County personal injury attorneys are devoted to the rights of injury victims. We understand the immense physical, mental, and emotional impact a brain injury can have on your life, and will tirelessly fight for your fair compensation when you hire our firm.
Pain & Discomfort
In many cases, a traumatic brain injury is caused by your head suddenly impacting a hard surface, such as a steering wheel, dashboard, or even the floor in a slip and fall case. The pain you suffer as the result of the physical impact doesn’t necessarily indicate brain damage, but should be seen as a red flag. Any headaches and discomfort that persists for days after the accident or appears later should be taken seriously.
If you experience any of the following after a blow to the head, seek medical attention immediately:
- Visual Disturbances
- Dizziness or balance issues
- Trouble falling asleep or staying asleep
The strongest indicators of a traumatic brain injury are issues with your brain function. These symptoms can commonly occur with minor brain injuries such as concussions, but can also indicate more serious long-term damage. More serious symptoms tend to indicate a more serious injury.
The following are serious indicators of potential trauma. Call a doctor immediately if you experience:
- Trouble paying attention
- Difficult concentrating
- Uncharacteristic memory issues
- Unusual confusion
- Difficulty reading or writing
- Trouble speaking or understanding others
