Signs and Symptoms of Brain Injury

brain injury attorney new yorkOne of the most serious injuries resulting from tragic accidents is a brain injury. Car accidents and sports injuries are some of the main causes of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Another common accident that can result in a brain injury is a slip and fall. However, any type of accident that causes some type of blunt force or impact to the head can be a culprit for a head injury, especially a TBI.

If you or a loved one has recently been in an accident or your child has been injured while playing sports, it is very important to seek immediate medical attention and watch for the signs and symptoms of a brain injury in the coming days and weeks.

Look for Signs Hinting to a TBI

Signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury do not always show up immediately after an injury. It can take days or even weeks after the accident for the signs of a TBI to the surface. This is why you need to see a doctor immediately if you detect any signs or symptoms of a brain injury. It is important to also note that a TBI can happen even if an injury seemed to be minor or harmless at first.

Below are common and more obvious signs and symptoms that may indicate the onset of a brain injury:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness, fatigue, or confusion
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Convulsions
  • Loss of coordination
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty waking up or sleeping much more than usual

Other less obvious signs to look for include:

  • Slurred speech
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in ears
  • Bad taste in mouth
  • Heightened sensitivity to light and/or sound
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Memory issues

If you notice that you or a loved one experiences any of these symptoms, it is important to seek immediate medical help. Traumatic brain injuries can be devastating and significantly impact the person. This is why it is imperative to get the appropriate treatment as soon as possible.
