Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
Unlike a fractured bone, severed limb, or burn injury — injuries that can be easily diagnosed and treated — traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be difficult to detect and even more difficult to understand and manage. The victims of TBI and their families are changed forever and faced with a difficult adjustment that may involve expensive rehabilitation and lifelong care.
At Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP, our Sacramento brain injury lawyers work closely with experts such as doctors, neuropsychologists, and others to determine the scope of the symptoms our clients’ experience. Based on that information, we determine the full needs of our clients now and in the future in order to ensure they receive full compensation.
An Invisible Injury
One of the most frustrating aspects of TBI for victims is that the symptoms are largely invisible to those who are not suffering from them. Symptoms are often misunderstood, even by experienced health care professionals, leading to the downplaying of symptoms and proper treatments not being delivered.
TBI victims are often left on their own to struggle with symptoms, as their family keeps their distance due to being unsure of how to respond or due to their own doubts about the legitimacy of the injury.
Identifying Brain Injury Symptoms
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may not appear for days or weeks following the accident and could go undetected. A TBI happens when the brain is injured as a result of a sudden physical force. Sometimes, it results not from an impact but from a sudden stop or start of a vehicle.
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:
- Personality changes
- Lack of smell or taste
- Severe vision problems
- Confusion or other cognitive problems
