Common signs of a serious TBI 

On Behalf of | May 21, 2024 | Personal Injury |

Minor brain injuries, such as a concussion, may lead to symptoms like headaches or fatigue. With rest and recovery, these types of injuries can generally heal without significant medical intervention.

However, it’s important not to assume that medical intervention isn’t needed or that the injury is actually minor. It could be a much more serious traumatic brain injury, and medical treatment may be necessary to prevent the condition from getting worse – or even turning fatal.

Symptoms to look for

The following are symptoms of a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury, and the presence of multiple symptoms can indicate a severe issue:

  • Persistent headaches that get worse over time 
  • Trouble with vision, such as the loss of vision in one eye 
  • Slurred speech or difficulty finding the right words 
  • Seizures and convulsions 
  • Nausea or repeated vomiting 
  • Trouble falling asleep or an inability to wake up 
  • Loss of consciousness, especially for a significant amount of time 
  • Clumsy movements, trouble with balance and lack of coordination 
  • Numbness moving through the extremities, along with a tingling sensation

In some cases, there can be issues like bleeding around the brain that will make these symptoms get worse if they are left unchecked. That’s why it’s so important for someone injured to seek medical care.

Of course, medical attention can be very expensive, especially with a serious brain injury. Those who have been hurt due to the negligence of others need to know if they can seek financial compensation. It may help to cover the costs of medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity and much more.
