Traumatic brain injuries are among the most devastating and long lasting injuries a person can suffer as a result of an accident. Commonly referred to as TBI’s, traumatic brain injuries are caused by blunt force trauma to the head – a common occurrence in car crashes, motorcycle crashes, and slip and fall accidents. While TBI’s can range from concussions to comas, even the most mild head injuries can have lasting physical, cognitive, and emotional effects. Those who suffer from these kinds of injuries often require extensive hospital stays, therapy, and rehabilitation, resulting in severe financial hardship. 

The symptoms of TBI’s are numerous. They include:

  • Headaches
  • Balance problems 
  • Difficulties with speech and memory
  • Nausea and dizziness
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Blurred vision
  • Increased sensitivity to noise

Some symptoms present directly following an accident, while others may develop days or even weeks later. Regardless, even the most mild symptoms can be indicative of a serious injury. If you have been involved in an accident, it is imperative that you seek medical attention right away.
