Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Symptoms

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is generally caused by an external impact that forces the brain to collide with the skull. TBIs are among the most common severe injuries in car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents.

Although the effects of TBIs are sometimes temporary, many traumatic brain injuries result in long-term physical and neurological impairment, permanent disability or death. If your family member suffered injury or wrongful death due to a TBI caused by the negligence of another, an experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help you seek financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.

Traumatic brain injury symptoms are wide-ranging, and most TBI victims present multiple symptoms. The TBI symptoms themselves will vary, and some symptoms may not be immediately apparent.

TBI symptoms may include:

- Changes in behavior or personality
- Double vision or blurry vision
- Dizziness
- Blood or clear fluid seeping from the nose and/or ears
- Memory loss
- Cognitive problems
- Loss of motor function
- Seizures
- Nausea or vomiting
- Tingling or numbness in the hands, fingers, feet or toes
- Pupils that do not react to light
- Respiratory difficulties
- Ringing in the ears

TBIs are often the focus of personal injury lawsuits stemming from:

- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Premises liability accidents

TBIs are life-altering injuries that affect not just the victims, but also their families. Because those who survive a traumatic brain injury may require extensive rehabilitation or lifetime medical care, it's important to work with a qualified brain injury attorney who will fight for the monetary compensation you and your family need as well as the peace of mind you deserve.
