Causes and Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A TBI occurs when the head or body experiences a violent blow or jolt, causing brain dysfunction. They can result from a catalog of accidents, including falls, construction site accidents, motor vehicle collisions, and more. In some cases, penetrating objects can also cause a TBI; for instance, soldiers may suffer TBIs if hit with shrapnel.
The severity of the injury to and physical trauma on brain function ranges from mild to severe. This categorization may be misleading, however, as even mild TBIs (often referred to as concussions or mTBIs) can lead to temporary brain dysfunction and have life-changing consequences when left untreated.
Symptoms of an mTBI include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Disorientation and confusion
- Difficulty retaining new information
- Brief loss of consciousness for 30 minutes or less
- Inability to remember events immediately before/after the accident
Moderate and severe TBIs can cause bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other permanent physical damage resulting in long-term complications or even death. Some other symptoms of these TBIs include:
- Significant confusion
- Seizures or convulsions
- Weakness in the extremities
- Inability to wake up from sleep
- Uncontrollable nausea and vomiting
- Persistent or worsening headaches
- Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) drainage from nose or ears
- Loss of consciousness lasting between minutes and hours
Should I File a TBI Claim?
Filing a claim is a viable option for individuals who sustained TBIs due to the actions of another. Since these injuries have a significant negative impact on victims’ lives, pursuing a claim often provides them with a much-needed and well-deserved sense of closure. Furthermore, a successful claim will carry with it a payout for damages related to the accident, such as the following:
- Loss of income
- Cost of disability
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses and hospital bills
- Loss of companionship with a spouse (if applicable)
