Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) usually results from a severe blow to the head causing the brain to move inside of the skull. The symptoms of brain injuries are wide-ranging. Some symptoms may appear immediately following the accident, while others may appear days or weeks later. Some symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Loss of consciousness for a few seconds to a few minutes or longer;
- State of being dazed, confused, or disoriented;
- Nausea or vomiting;
- Fatigue or drowsiness;
- Problems with speech;
- Difficulty sleeping;
- Sleeping more than usual;
- Sensitivity to light or sound and
- Dizziness or loss of balance.
Each individual may react differently to a brain injury. If any of these symptoms are apparent in yourself or someone you know, seek help from a medical professional immediately. After diagnosis by a medical professional, consult with an injury lawyer to see what compensation might be available to you.
