Common Legal Questions About Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to your brain that is usually caused by a jolt or blow to the head that disrupts the function of the brain. While not all impacts can cause traumatic brain injury, the severity of such an injury may range from “mild” – a brief change in mental status or consciousness – to “severe” – an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. A traumatic brain injury could potentially have short term, or even worse, life-altering effects that require a hefty financial burden.
There are endless ways in which you could suffer a traumatic brain injury. The most common that we see from our legal experience have been cause from:
- Motor vehicle/traffic crashes
- Sports injuries
- Blast or explosions
The severity of a traumatic brain injury can differ from mild to severe, which will also determine the signs and sympoms. No symptom is necessarily a definite cause of a TBI, but is surely a cause for medical attention to rule out and prevent any long term damage.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury, including a concussion include:
- Concentration problems
- Memory loss
- Inability to sleep
- Trouble with balance
- Ringing in your ears
- Doubled or blurred vision
