There is no such thing as a mild brain injury, as a single complication can cause lifelong or severe consequences. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you need to be willing to file a personal injury lawsuit against them, or you could be handling all the expenses related to recovery alone.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

You may have heard the term “traumatic brain injury” or TBI for short before but that does not mean it was fully explained to you. Just what is a traumatic brain injury? Are there non-traumatic brain injuries?

The term traumatic brain injury is somewhat misleading in the way that every brain injury is or can be traumatic. As many medical clinics around the world define it, a TBI is any sort of brain dysfunction that has been caused by an outside or unnatural force, such as a strike to the head or disease. A “brain dysfunction” is an intentionally vague term, as any abnormality in your brain is a dysfunction, and any should be taken seriously.

What Are the Symptoms of a TBI?

Common symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include:

  • Blacking out
  • Dizziness
  • Dilated pupils
  • Nausea
  • Slurred speech
  • Chronic headaches

Less common and potentially more dangerous symptoms include:

  • Amnesia
  • Inability to understand communication or basic concepts
  • Dramatic mood swings
  • Sensory loss (blindness, deafness, etc.)
  • Bleeding from nose, mouth, or ears
  • Tinnitus (ringing in ears)

What To Do If You Have Symptoms of a Brain Injury

Any of the aforementioned symptoms could escalate into a severe, permanent brain injury that threatens the victim’s life. The worsening of the conditions often comes without warning and happens rapidly.

If you or someone you know has had an accident or was ill recently and are now showing signs of a traumatic brain injury, please call emergency medical responders immediately. Most traumatic brain injuries can only be prevented, not cured, so it is important to catch them as soon as they happen and before they worsen.

What Are the Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

A brain injury may be quite severe but that, unfortunately, does not mean that the causes of them are quite rare. In day-to-day life, the negligence of another who does not respect everyone’s safety and wellbeing can easily create a catastrophic accident or hazardous event that leads to a brain injury.

A negligent medical professional can even cause a brain injury with a botched surgery, improper treatment, misdiagnosis, anesthesia error, and more. With our assistance, we can review your claim to pinpoint the negligent act that directly caused your brain injury.

What Damages Can be Recovered in a Brain Injury Claim?

Recovering from a brain injury is often quite costly due to:

  • Emergency room treatment or surgery
  • Extended hospital care
  • Rehabilitative needs after hospital stay
  • Necessary adjustments in everyday life
