Brain Injury Symptoms

The head is perhaps the most devastating part of the human body to injure. Even though the brain is protected by the skull, it can still be shaken, bruised, or punctured when struck with extreme force.

Due to the intricacies of the human brain, even minor damage could cause serious side-effects, which is why it is so important to spot signs of injury quickly. If you see any indications that someone you know has suffered a brain injury, seek medical attention immediately.

Signs of a minor brain injury include:

  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to sound
  • Difficulty concentrating

Moderate to severe brain injuries may exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Loss of consciousness for a prolonged period of time (several minutes to hours)
  • Repeated vomiting
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Dilated pupils
  • Worsening headache
  • Severe loss of coordination
  • Weakness or numbness in the extremities, especially the fingers or toes
  • Clear fluid drains from the nose or ears
  • Agitation, anger, or other significant mood changes
  • Slurred speech

Even signs of a minor brain injury should be treated with extreme care. If you notice any of these symptoms in yourself or in someone who has recently sustained a head injury, seek medical help immediately. When dealing with a head injury patient, keep the individual conscious until otherwise directed by a doctor.

Let Our Firm Help You

Head injuries can be extremely damaging and may result in loss of memory, loss of cognitive function, spinal cord damage, and severe pain. In extreme cases, the individual might sustain permanent damage, fall into a coma, enter a vegetative state, or go brain dead.

If someone you love has suffered a brain injury due to the negligence or carelessness of another, make sure you take legal action immediately. Whether the injury occurred in a car accident, a slip and fall incident, an act of violence, or a sports game, we can help build an effective case in your favor.

The at fault party’s insurance carrier asserted a low impact defense, and asserted that our client suffered from these injuries prior to the accident.

  • $820,000.00 Settlement in Rear End Collision

  • $520,000.00 Settlement in Auto Accident
    A husband and wife were traveling 55 mph in the middle lane when they were suddenly side-swiped. Their vehicle sustained tremendous property damage to the driver’s side and the mirror had even ripped off the door. The at-fault driver fled the scene, but was later charged and arrested for a DUI. The insurance adjuster initially offered to settle the claim for a very minimal amount. The wife underwent neck surgery and the husband had back surgery. After operative reports were submitted to the adjuster, the policy limits of the at-fault party were tendered along with two underinsured motorist policies in this case for a total resolution of $520,000.
