Recognize the signs of a traumatic brain injury

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can range in severity from relatively minor, temporary effects to lifelong complications that can leave you unable to work. A TBI is a common outcome of a serious motor vehicle accident, that is why knowing what warning signs to look out for after you or a loved one has been in an accident is so important. 

It is important to take note of anything, even something that you may not think is related to a TBI. Look out for symptoms such as:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Persistent headaches or migraines
  • Seizures
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Sensory issues, such as blurry vision or ringing ears
  • Changes in sleep patterns, either sleeping too much or too little
  • Problems with coordination
  • Numbness in your limbs
  • Problems remembering or concentrating
  • Mood swings, including depression or anxiety

Seek Medical Help As Soon As Possible

Of course, getting a proper diagnosis of a possible traumatic brain injury is just one of many reasons why it is so important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after your accident. A doctor can properly diagnose your condition and recommend the proper treatment.

Additionally, by seeking medical attention, you will also have proper documentation of any injuries, which will be necessary if you want to pursue compensation from the negligent driver who hit you.

Talk To A Lawyer Today

After you talk to a doctor, your next step should be to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. Do not trust the negligent driver's insurance company to make things right for you. Talk with a lawyer who can talk with your doctor and other experts about the extent of your injuries to determine the amount of compensation that you truly deserve. Because the effects of a TBI can be so severe, it is important to never settle too early.
