TBIs in Personal Injury Cases
Traumatic brain injuries can occur in a wide range of circumstances in which an impact causes the brain to jar against the interior of the skull. In personal injury lawsuits, TBIs are typically the result of accidents including:
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Truck accidents
TBIs are often life-altering, and in many cases they require long-term care.
The extent of a traumatic brain injury may be difficult to immediately assess, because some signs are not obvious and other symptoms are shared with so-called “minor” brain injuries such as concussions. Symptoms of TBIs include:
- Clear fluid leaking from the ears or nose
- Failure of pupils to respond to light
- Loss of memory
- Loss of motor function
- Nausea or vomiting
- Respiratory problems
- Uneven pupil size
- Vision disturbances
It’s critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you or a loved one experienced a blow to the head, even if some symptoms are not instantly apparent. The sooner you seek diagnosis and treatment for a brain injury, the better the chances of limiting severe and potentially fatal complications.
