Brain Injuries After An Accident

Head injuries are always dangerous to victims and have the potential to result in long-lasting symptoms, permanent disability, or even death. There are different types of head injuries, many of which result in traumatic brain injury,1 No matter what type of head and brain injury you suffered, you should always discuss a possible legal claim with experienced Houston TBI attorney Stewart J. Guss. Attorney Guss is committed to protecting the legal rights of individuals struggling with serious brain injuries.

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:

  • Severe headaches
  • Dizziness or disorientation
  • Confusion
  • Vision and hearing issues
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Personality changes
  • Slurred speech
  • Difficulties with balance and coordination
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Challenges with written and oral communication
  • Emotional and mood issues
  • Memory loss

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 Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries commonly occur due to the negligence of other parties. The following can lead to serious TBI and related symptoms:

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.
