A traumatic brain injury is defined as any violent blow, jolt or penetration of the head that causes brain dysfunction. Determining if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury is sometimes difficult since symptoms are not always readily apparent after an accident. For this reason, it is important to seek medical care after any accident where you sustained a head injury.
Types of Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries range from mild to severe. While severe brain injuries get a lot of attention, mild injuries can still impair a person’s ability to live and enjoy life as they once did. Regardless of the severity of your brain injury, you may be able to fight for compensation if your injuries were the direct result of another person’s negligence.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Common symptoms of traumatic brain injury include things like:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Poor sleep
- Memory loss
- Mood changes
