Did your loved one suffer a traumatic brain injury

A person involved in a traffic accident or slip and fall can suffer a traumatic brain injury without realizing it. He or she may pass off symptoms such as headaches, forgetfulness or irritability to the medication he or she is taking for other injuries. Unfortunately, the symptoms may not go away after other injuries heal.

To ensure your loved one receives the care he or she needs, it's important to know the signs that a traumatic brain injury may have occurred.

Traumatic brain injury or TBI can be caused by a violent blow to the head or a sudden whiplash type movement that causes the brain to impact inside the skull. The person who suffers the injury may not undergo a period of unconsciousness and may show no outward sign of damage. Symptoms that an injury has occurred may include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Sleeplessness or sleeping more or less than usual
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability or other mood changes
  • Sensitivity to light or sounds
  • Blurred vision
  • Problems with memory or concentration

There are several ways doctors can diagnose a brain injury. The Glasgow Coma Scale is one example. Imaging tests such as a CT scan or MRI may show signs of injury. The patient may also undergo a neuropsychological assessment to determine how well the person can perform specialized tasks. Traumatic brain injury or TBI may be classified as mild, moderate or severe.

If your loved one suffered a brain injury as the result of another person's negligence in an auto accident, you are entitled to seek compensation to help you and your loved one face the challenges ahead.
