Symptoms of a Brain Injury
Being able to identify even mild traumatic brain injuries is important. Many symptoms are not unique to brain injuries, leading to a possible misdiagnosis. Time is of the essence with these injuries, however, so correctly identifying your brain injury as soon as possible is of the utmost importance.
Sometimes the only clear indication of a brain injury after a car accident is loss of consciousness. However, even if your accident doesn’t knock you out, you could still suffer other brain injury symptoms:
- Mood swings
- Headaches and migraines
- Difficulty concentrating and confusion
- Changes in balance, coordination, and motor skills
- Memory loss or amnesia
Many of these symptoms can be mistaken for other medical problems, so if you suffer any of the above after your car accident, be sure to see a medical professional right away. Should a brain injury be discovered, contact us immediately so that we can begin exploring your legal options for recourse against your accident’s responsible party.
Impact of a Brain Injury After a Car Accident
A brain injury is going to change your life in some way, whether you suffer a concussion or a traumatic brain injury. It may seem relatively simple to recover from a concussion, but even a minor one can have unforeseen consequences and leave you more susceptible to future concussions.
Your brain injury may just require you to take a few days off work, or you may need to go as far as relearning basic motor functions and cognitive processes. There is so much left to learn about the brain that it is almost impossible to predict what you may experience and how much time treatment and recovery may require.
Financial Compensation for Brain Injuries
The medical care required to treat a brain injury is certain to be accompanied by expensive medical bills. You may require home medical equipment, medication, therapy, and have to hire help. It’s possible your brain injury may leave you permanently disabled and unable to work.
The pain and suffering a brain injury inflicts can be unbearable, made all the worse when someone else’s poor decision was responsible for what happened.
