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

Blunt force, quickening movements, and deceleration forces can cause brain injuries. These often happen due to a car accidentsemitrailer accident , or other personal injury. Regardless of injury severity, you have a right to compensation when the cause is due to negligence. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in significant impairment of motor skills and speech, and it can put someone in a vegetative estate.

You can suffer a mild brain injury and look or feel like nothing is wrong. However, even mild brain injuries have severe effects, especially if left undiagnosed or untreated. Mild TBIs are more challenging to diagnose and may not appear on an MRI or CT scan. The Brain Injury Association of America lists the following symptoms that may be symptomatic of a mild brain injury:

Early symptoms:

  • Headache
  • Vertigo or dizziness
  • Lack of awareness of surroundings
  • Nausea with or without memory dysfunction
  • Vomiting

Later symptoms:

  • Low-grade headache that lasts
  • Lightheadedness
  • Poor attention and concentration
  • Excessiveness or easy fatigue
  • Sensitivity to bright light or difficulty focusing your vision
  • Intolerance of or sensitivity to loud noises
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Anxiety and depressed mood
  • Irritability or frustration

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

Neck injuries from car wrecks, semitrailer accidents, or other personal injuries can be serious and need immediate medical attention. Whiplash is a common cause of neck injury. If you have suffered a neck injury due to someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation and help to recover. The personal injury attorneys at Clements, Taylor, Butkovich & Cohen, L.P.A., Co. have extensive experience handling neck injury cases.

You should always treat any neck, head, or spinal cord injury from an accident seriously. Not only does this type of injury require prompt medical attention, but it also warrants contacting a spinal cord injury attorney immediately. It can get increasingly difficult to prove your case to an insurance company, judge, or jury the longer you delay getting treatment and seeking legal representation. Dealing with your injury as soon as possible can also help you handle delayed medical problems associated with the injury that do not surface right away.
