After a traumatic brain injury, a patient may suffer symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury, moderate traumatic brain injury or severe traumatic brain injury. Symptoms from a traumatic brain injury vary depending on the person and situation, and could include short-term symptoms or long-term negative effects such as the following:
- Vomiting and nausea
- Lightheadedness or dizziness
- Blurred vision
- Behavioral or mood changes
- Trouble with concentration or thinking
- Numbness in extremities
- Slurred speech
- Aphasia (language problems)
- Convulsions or seizures
- Post-concussion syndrome
- Hypoxia or anoxia (loss of oxygen)
- Locked-in syndrome
- Compressive cranial neuropathies
- Chronic pain
- Chronic hypothyroidism
- Post-traumatic amnesia
In the event of a traumatic brain injury, emergency department doctors may perform X-rays and computed tomography (CT) scans to identify skull fractures, hematomas inside the skull from bleeding blood vessels and contusions to the brain. To control bleeding from hematomas and increased pressure inside the skull, doctors may perform surgery or install pressure monitors inside the skull. Long-term treatments may involve speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical medicine consultations, psychiatric evaluations and social support.
As experienced traumatic brain injury attorneys, we understand the medical significance and potential long-term costs of treating a serious brain injury. Because we accept cases on a contingent fee basis and advance the costs necessary to prosecute the claim, we are careful to select cases that have merit and that will result in a favorable outcome for our clients. Our initial case evaluation is free and without obligation.
