Recognizing Brain Injury Symptoms

Posted By Law Offices of Joel Parker || 2-Mar-2016

A single brain injury can leave devastating, lifelong consequences with the victim and their family. Immediate impacts may be loss of motor control, coma, or even wrongful death. But not every brain injury is going to be readily apparent, and this can make it all the more dangerous. The longer harm to the brain goes undiagnosed, the more damage it can cause; even a minor injury could worsen if untreated, causing significant debilitation in the end.

If you or a loved one have been in an accident recently that was severe, jarring, or particularly destructive, there may be an underlying brain injury that has yet to be diagnoses. It is important that you know the telltale symptoms of a brain injury.

An undiagnosed brain injury can cause the victim to experience:

  • Dizziness and balance issues
  • Waves of nausea
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of hearing or phantom sounds
  • Uncharacteristic seizures or tremors
  • Amnesia
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent nose bleeds

If any of the aforementioned symptoms or conditions have been afflicted you, it may be caused by a brain injury. Please contact a trusted medical physician as soon as you can and explain to them what is going on. The sooner your brain injury is diagnosed, the sooner you can start seeking the right path to recovery.

Legal Action After a Brain Injury

Most accidents that can cause a brain injury are not actually caused by the person who gets hurt. Instead, someone else’s negligence leads to the accident, like in a car accident with a drunk driver or the mistake of a coworker at a construction site. When this occurs, it is important to realize that you can seek financial compensation from those who have done you wrong, who were the cause of your brain injury, by using civil lawsuits and litigation.
