A traumatic brain injury is a common but life-threatening occurrence after accidents involving an impact to the head. The majority of traumatic brain injuries are considered mild due to the nature in which symptoms reveal themselves. While your injury and bones will heal, the trauma your brain suffers can have irreversible consequences on your physical, mental, and emotional health.
One of the most prominent complexities of a TBI is the delay in symptoms, as many people are unaware of the extent of their injury until their case has settled or been dropped. Do not wait until it is too late to obtain the compensation you deserve for an injury which has the potential to adversely impact the rest of your life.
The signs of a TBI range from mild to severe and include but are not limited to the following:
- Excessive sleep or fatigue
- Coordination and balance issues
- Changes in mood, violent outbursts, and irritability
- Dilated pupils
- Memory loss and confusion
- Sensory issues such as sensitivity to light or sound
- Clear fluids draining from the nose or ears
It is vital you understand your TBI may not reveal itself for several days or weeks after the incident. This is why it is the responsibility of your physician to conduct a thorough neurological examination after such a severe blow to the head. It is up to you to take the initiative when it comes to your health as this is the only way to successfully resolve your case.
