A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can incur as a result of blunt trauma, force or impact to the head. A TBI can be caused by many different types of accidents, including motor vehicle and falls. Symptoms can include headaches, blurred vision, memory loss, loss of speech, loss of concentration, dizziness and mood swings, to name a few. These symptoms can be categorized as mild, moderate or severe depending upon the type of symptoms, severity, reoccurrence or whether they are lasting or permanent.
TBI symptoms and the condition can affect people in different ways. Some people may recognize TBI symptoms immediately, while for others, these symptoms don’t show up right away or can be ignored or minimized at first. If left untreated, the effects of TBI can affect the way you live your life and the relationships you have with others. If ignored or left untreated, the symptoms can become worse.
The timeline for recovery from a TBI varies from person to person. People with symptoms of mild TBI may recover within a few weeks or months. Some moderate to severe TBI symptoms last for a longer period of time and sometimes can become permanent. In any event, a TBI can devastate the lives of victims and their families. When such an injury occurs due to the negligence of another party, it is important that you first obtain medical treatment, including diagnostic studies such as a Brain CT Scan or MRI. If symptoms continue to persist or if they become increasingly symptomatic, you may consider inquiring about your legal rights because medical care and treatment in many TBI cases can be extremely expensive and financially devastating.
