Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

After an accident, you may not know if you have a traumatic brain injury. TBIs can cause a wide range of symptoms, both physical and cognitive, that may appear immediately after the injury or develop over time, so don’t draw any conclusions if symptoms don’t show up immediately.

Consult a doctor about your accident, especially if you have any of these signs of TBI.

Mild TBI Symptoms

  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Fatigue or lethargy
  • Sensitivity to sound
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • Loss of smell
  • Discomfort or pain when exposed to bright light
  • Feeling dizzy, confused, or briefly losing consciousness
  • Difficulty remembering or staying focused
  • Trouble sleeping or excessive sleepiness
  • Mood changes or mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Seizures or convulsions
  • Repeated vomiting or feeling nauseous
  • Enlarged pupils in one or both eyes
  • Clear fluids draining from the nose or ears
  • Weakness or numbness in fingers and toes
  • Agitation, restlessness, combativeness, or other unusual behavior
  • Slurred speech or difficulty articulating words
  • Coma

Children’s Symptoms

TBI may present itself differently in infants and young children. Symptoms include:

  • Persistent, inconsolable crying
  • Change in eating or nursing habits
  • Changes in sleep habits
  • Unusual fussiness or irritability
  • Seizures, sad mood, or loss of interest in activities

If you or your child experience any of these TBI symptoms after a head injury, seek medical attention promptly. Quickly diagnose and begin managing traumatic brain injury to begin your recovery and minimize long-term complications.

Types of Accidents That Cause TBI

If you experienced any of these common causes of TBI, get checked out by a doctor:

  • Falls: Falls are a leading cause of TBI, especially among older adults and children.
  • Motor Vehicle Crashes: Car accidents, motorcycle collisions, and pedestrian accidents can lead to head injuries.
  • Sports Injuries: High-impact sports like football, soccer, and boxing can cause TBI.
  • Assaults: Physical violence, including blows to the head, can result in traumatic brain injuries.
  • Blast Injuries: Explosions or combat-related incidents can cause both penetrating TBI, which occurs when an object pierces the skull, and non-penetrating TBI, caused by an external force strong enough to move the brain within the skull.
  • Exposure to Toxic Chemicals or Gases: Chronic or severe toxic exposure can lead to lasting brain damage or even death.

If you suffered any of the above or another accident that caused TBI, it’s time to get legal help. Let DFW Injury Lawyers fight to win you justice and the compensation you deserve.

The Challenge of Proving Your TBI

TBI is a costly, potentially long-term financial drain. A recent study found that in-hospital TBI costs per patient ranged from $2,130 to $401,808.

So get your insurance company to cover your TBI. But it’s not like breaking a leg or suffering a cut. Traumatic brain injury is difficult to prove because it’s invisible. Even sophisticated neuroimaging techniques like MRIs or CT scans can miss brain damage.

Insurance companies are in business to minimize payouts, so hire skilled legal representation. If the insurer denies your claim or offers an insufficient settlement, your TBI lawyer must prepare to go to trial, which can get even more complex.

Other factors make it challenging to get your insurance company to cover your TBI, including:

  • Delayed Symptoms: Symptoms of TBI don’t always show up immediately. It can be weeks or years before you experience symptoms such as memory problems, mood swings, or cognitive defects.
  • Unclear Causation: It can be an intricate process to link the traumatic event to the brain injury directly. Legal cases require proof that negligence or intentional actions caused the TBI.
  • Subjective Symptoms: TBI symptoms such as headaches, memory issues, and changes in mood or behavior are subjective and rely on you to self-report them.
  • Doctor Disputes: Medical professionals may disagree on the severity or cause of a TBI, making it more difficult to prove your case.

All the above are potential roadblocks to winning your TBI insurance claim. You must prove causation in your case.

DFW Injury Lawyers has seen too many David versus Goliath battles between good people and massive insurance companies.

We know how to establish a clear link between your accident and your brain injury to maximize your chances for success. Our team will uncover any evidence that the TBI impairs your ability to work, perform daily tasks, or enjoy life, and we’ll build a strong case.

You’ll want a legal team that has the muscle to negotiate with your insurance company and win a just verdict at trial, if necessary. To defend your right to compensation, choose DFW Injury Lawyers.

Steps to Take After Your TBI

What should you do after an accident causes a TBI? Victims may experience uncertainty and indecision when faced with such a potentially life-changing matter. Taking all the proper steps can mean the difference between failure and an appropriate damage payment.

Always take care of your health first. Get treatment for your TBI and follow your doctor’s instructions regarding medications, follow-up appointments, and any restrictions.

You must also collect all the details of your treatment. Document and keep records of all aspects of your TBI, including:

  • Medical Records: Medical reports, test results, and treatment plans
  • Expenses: Medical bills, rehabilitation costs, and other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Communication: Emails, letters, and notes from insurance companies—also, record phone conversations, noting dates and the names of whoever you spoke with

Other steps to take include:

  • Monitor Symptoms: Keep an eye on any changes in your symptoms, such as headaches, dizziness, memory issues, or mood changes. Report any concerning developments to your doctor and lawyer promptly.
  • Avoid High-Risk Activities: Stay away from activities that could put you at risk for another head injury. This includes contact sports, heavy lifting, or anything that might jostle your head.
  • Stay Connected: Reach out to friends and loved ones. Having a support system can positively impact your recovery and do wonders for your well-being.
