Signs and Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Medical professionals classify traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) into two categories: closed head injuries and penetrating head injuries. Both can be the result of another’s negligence and, consequently, warrant a lawsuit.
Closed head injuries are sustained when an object or force strikes the head or body, causing the brain to slam into the skull. Penetrating head injuries are when an object (such as falling debris or a bullet) shatters the skull and injures the brain.
Traumatic brain injury symptoms can vary, but the most common include:
- Slurred speech
- Paralysis, complete or incomplete
- Loss of consciousness
- Memory problems
- Learning deficits
- Changes in personality
- Irritability or sudden emotional outbursts
- Trouble processing information
- Trouble with balance, muscle strength, coordination
- Sensory deficits, such as a loss of hearing, vision, or smell
If you suspect you have sustained a traumatic brain injury, it is crucial that you seek immediate medical help. When left untreated, these injuries can progress into long-term, even permanent, conditions.
How to Prove Negligence in a Brain Injury Case
It is not hard to see how the symptoms of a brain injury can wreak havoc on a person’s life. They can also be very expensive to treat. That’s why brain injury victims deserve compensation from the negligent, at-fault party.
Sadly, however, these parties are often reluctant to admit fault, and even more reluctant to compensate the victim fairly. The most effective way for many victims to recover compensation is, therefore, through a legal case.
Anyone can file a lawsuit; winning one is another story. You will need to prove the other party was negligent to be successful in your lawsuit. To prove this, you will need to go back to what caused your brain injury in the first place.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Brain Injuries?
Brain injuries are often rooted in the following:
- Bus crashes
- Bike accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Car and truck accidents
- Slip and falls on unsafe properties
- Sports injuries/accidents
- Violent crimes
Victims need the help of an attorney who understands not only the complex medical science of TBIs, but also how to investigate the accident that led to their TBI. At DiPasquale Moore, we have litigated a wide range of brain injury claims. We will investigate to uncover the act of negligence that led to your accident and injury. Then, we will work to win a fair settlement or verdict in your favor.
