Traumatic Brain Injury

One of the most misdiagnosed types of injury is traumatic brain injury (TBI). In many cases, the injury is not noticed at the initial time of treatment, and victims may go for days or weeks without knowing the severity of their injury. In many cases, an untreated traumatic brain injury that goes untreated can result in wrongful death.

If you or your loved one has suffered a head injury or been in an auto accident that resulted in whiplash, you may need to know what the symptoms of traumatic brain injury are. Even mild head injuries can result in traumatic brain injury, and the damage associated with a brain injury can often be permanent and debilitating.

Mild and Severe Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

Traumatic brain injury refers to a brain injury resulting from trauma and may be mild or severe. Some of the most common symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury include:

  • Disorientation or dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Vision problems
  • Hearing problems
  • Headaches
  • Sleep problems
  • Seizures
  • Nausea
  • Mood changes or depression

Severe TBI Symptoms

Severe traumatic brain injury may result in similar symptoms to mild injury, but may also include:

  • Speech and language difficulty
  • Sensory confusion
  • Perceptual confusion (smell touch taste)
  • Physical changes
  • Social-Emotional changes

Regardless of whether your traumatic brain injury is mild or severe, if it was caused by the negligence or intention of another individual, you deserve compensation and answers to your questions. You may be struggling to deal with simple tasks in your daily life as a result of your injury, and trying to gain compensation from your insurance company or from another individual may seem like an overwhelming task to you.
