What is a brain injury and how do I know if I have one?

Brain injuries are caused by acceleration or deceleration forces or by blunt force. These can occur in a car accident, semitrailer accident or other personal injury. You have a right to compensation for both mild and severe brain injuries caused by others who are negligent. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in a vegetative state and significant impairment of speech and motor skills.

Mild traumatic brain injuries are more difficult to diagnose and may not show up on a CT scan or MRI. You can have a mild brain injury and look normal. But mild brain injuries have severe consequences. The Brain Injury Association of America lists the following symptoms that may indicate mild brain injury:

Early symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness or vertigo
  • Lack of awareness of surroundings
  • Nausea with or without memory dysfunction
  • Vomiting

Later symptoms:

  • Persistent low-grade headache
  • Lightheadedness
  • Poor attention and concentration
  • Excessiveness or easy fatigue
  • Intolerance of bright light or difficulty focusing your vision
  • Intolerance of loud noises
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Anxiety and depressed mood
  • Irritability and low frustration tolerance

Can I recover for whiplash and neck injuries in an accident?
