Brain injuries are devastating to both the victim and the victim’s family. Often, these injuries result in the development of life-altering disabilities which may require long-term care. When faced with the financial and emotional strain associated with a traumatic brain injury, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
A Difficult Injury to Diagnose
Often, the symptoms of brain injuries may take several days or even months to appear. Even then, they may be very subtle, making the injury difficult to diagnose. Unfortunately, when a brain injury goes undiagnosed for an extended period of time, it can lead to irreversible damage, requiring a lifetime of care.
If you have suffered a jarring blow to the head, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. You do not have to lose consciousness or experience concussion-like symptoms to have developed a serious brain injury. By seeking prompt medical care, you will minimize the risk of long-term damage due to your injury.
Brain Injury Symptoms
There are a variety of symptoms associated with brain injuries, ranging from mild to very severe. You do not necessarily have to exhibit all of these symptoms to suffer from a brain injury:
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory loss
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Blurred vision
- Mood changes
- Concentration problems
- Nausea or vomiting
- Slurred speech
- Inability to awaken from sleep
- Loss of coordination
If you exhibit any combination of these symptoms following your head injury, consult your doctor at once.
