6 Signs of Brain Damage to Look Out For

In the aftermath of an auto accident, sports collision, or any event involving sudden impact, the possibility of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) looms as a serious concern. Traumatic brain injuries are among the most severe and complex injuries one can sustain, often with lasting effects that can alter every facet of the victim’s and their family’s lives. Recognizing the signs of TBI early on is crucial, but navigating the aftermath requires more than just medical attention—it demands expert legal representation. This is where the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer become invaluable, particularly one with a deep understanding and specialization in brain damage cases.

Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage, affecting cognitive functions, physical capabilities, emotional stability, and overall quality of life. The path to recovery can be long, arduous, and expensive, with treatments spanning from immediate emergency care to long-term rehabilitation and therapy. The financial burden of medical bills, coupled with potential loss of income, can be overwhelming for the victims and their families. However, if the injury was the result of another party’s negligence or wrongdoing, you should not have to bear these costs alone.

This is where a skilled personal injury lawyer with expertise in brain damage representation becomes your most valuable ally. An attorney specializing in this field understands the intricacies of TBI cases and is equipped to navigate the complex legal landscape to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. But why choose us to represent you in such a critical battle?

First and foremost, our legal team possesses a profound understanding of the medical aspects of traumatic brain injuries, which is essential in articulating the extent of your injuries and their impact on your life.

Our experienced negotiators will advocate on your behalf, ensuring that you are not pressured into accepting an unfair settlement. We are prepared to take your case to trial if that’s what it takes to secure just compensation.

If you or someone you know has been involved in an auto accident, sporting accident, or another sudden impact, you should always be on the lookout for signs of potential traumatic brain injury, or TBI. Here are six signs to keep in mind.

  1. Loss of Consciousness

Someone who has had a traumatic brain injury may fall in and out of consciousness after their collision. Concussions often cause this specific symptom of brain injury.

  1. Persistent Headache

Headaches are unfortunately a common problem of everyday life. However, having persistent headaches after a traumatic accident or large fall can be a sign of something deeper going on. If persistent headaches continue or worsen over time, you should seek medical attention.

  1. Confusion

Confusion or disorientation following an injury or fall can point to a larger brain injury. People experiencing confusion may have trouble stinging together sentences or doing everyday tasks. If someone’s confusion does not get better with time, it could be a sign of brain damage.

  1. Memory Loss

If someone is experiencing memory loss that is associated with brain damage, it is likely to manifest as more than simply being a bit forgetful throughout a hectic day. It is more likely that their memory loss would be larger chunks of time or periods of “blackout” in their memories. Memory loss is a serious symptom of brain injury or damage.

  1. Slurring or Slow Speech

If someone who has just been in an accident or sports injury experiences slurred or slowing speech, it can be a symptom of brain damage from that incident. These speech anomalies can come in different forms, so it is important to pay attention to your friend’s speech to correctly ascertain what is happening.

  1. Mood Swings

Brain damage can change the way people interact with each other and the world, depending on the type and the severity of the injury. This is more than simply being emotional, this is drastic changes in a person’s behavior.
