NEW HAVEN TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY LAWYER
SYMPTOMS OF TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Head trauma in an auto accident, slip and fall or another accident can cause a brain injury, even when the victim does not suffer unconsciousness. These injuries are sometimes called closed head injuries, since there is no outward sign that an injury has occurred. Many doctors overlook symptoms of brain injury, as do the patients themselves.
If you think that you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury in an accident, contact the attorneys at the LoRicco Law Firm for a free initial consultation. You may be entitled to compensation to help you meet the challenges ahead.
MY LOVED ONE IS NOT THE SAME AFTER AN ACCIDENT
We often hear this from family members who contact our firm. Often, it is a sign that a traumatic brain injury may have occurred.
Just as football players can suffer long-term brain damage from collisions on the field, so can people who suffer brain damage from head trauma in accidents. The injury is caused by the acceleration and deceleration of the brain within the skull. Symptoms of TBI may include:
- Short-term memory loss
- Sensitivity to light or sound
- Difficulty following instructions
- A change in sleeping habits (either insomnia or sleeping more than usual)
Many people attribute the symptoms of traumatic brain injury to other causes, such as the effects of pain or medication, and assume their loved one will return to normal in a few weeks. Unfortunately, if a brain injury has occurred, the damage may be permanent. It’s important to have the condition diagnosed by a specialist so your loved one can obtain both treatment and compensation.
