Common signs and symptoms of TBI
Signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injuries may not show up for hours or even days following an accident, so victims of concussions or other types of moderate TBI may not immediately realize that they have suffered a serious head injury. For this reason, everyone should seek medical attention any time they suffer a blow to the head so a medical professional can perform the appropriate tests to diagnose and treat a head injury. Some of the symptoms of a TBI can include:
The nature and severity of your symptoms will depend upon the extent of the damage to brain tissue that occurred. Many symptoms of TBI can hinder your ability to return to work, school, or even take part in everyday activities and conversations. These effects can last long after the traumatic injury took place.
Negligence can cause TBI
Traumatic brain injuries commonly occur due to the negligence of other parties. The following can lead to serious TBI and related symptoms:
- Motor vehicle accidents2
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Slips, trips, and falls3
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
- Dangerous hazards on another party’s premises
- Assaults, including shootings and stabbings
Negligent parties should be held accountable for all of the losses of TBI victims, including lost income and earning power, medical expenses, emotional issues, pain and suffering, and more.
