A woman is sitting in her car with the door open, holding her head after an accident that may require a traumatic brain injury lawyer.

Receiving a head injury after a catastrophic car crash, trucking accident or even an accident at work can leave anyone rattled. With traumatic brain injuries accounting for at least 586 TBI-related hospitalizations and 190 TBI-related deaths per day, it is important to know what they are, how they happen, and when you should seek help from a traumatic brain injury lawyer. 

While traumatic brain injuries vary, it is important to get the medical attention you need especially if the accident was due to another’s negligence. As experienced traumatic brain injury lawyers, we want to inform you about these injuries and why our team may be able to help you through your case. 

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury? 

A traumatic brain injury, also known as a TBI, is a brain injury caused by a trauma to the head.  It can be as simple as a quick blow to the head in a car accident, or during an abrupt change in momentum while playing sports. These injuries can range from mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the angle, speed and force exerted at the time of the injury. 

These injuries are classified by: 

  • The severity of the blow to the head 
  • The severity of the hit to the body
  • If there was penetration into the brain
  • If chemical changes are present in the brain 
  • The existence of new issues with memory, learning or concentration. 

As traumatic brain injury lawyers, we typically see these injuries arise after a car accident, trucking accident or slip and fall at the workplace. Regardless of the severity of the accident, if you believe you experienced head trauma, you should seek medical attention to gather all information you may need to make a personal injury claim for a traumatic brain injury.

What are the Common Symptoms? 

Since most traumatic brain injuries are caused by an abrupt change in force, there are a number of head injury symptoms one may experience after a catastrophic accident. While most injuries to the brain resolve with time, there are cases where the injury is so severe it leads to chronic pain and other long-lasting medical conditions. 

The most common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include: 

  • Inability to remember the cause of the injury
  • Confusion 
  • Difficulty remembering new information 
  • Problem with speech or forming new words
  • Headache 
  • Dizziness 
  • Nausea 
  • Blurred vision 
  • Light or sound sensitivity 
  • Change in energy levels 
  • Ringing in the ears 
  • Changes in mood or sleep patterns

If the injury is more severe, you may experience a time of unconsciousness, ranging from a few minutes to days. Additionally, you may be more at risk for a brain hemorrhage, neurological issues or other brain injuries
