Brain Injuries Can Occur in Many Different Types of Accidents
A severe brain injury can occur in a wide range of different accidents. According to the CDC, the three most common accidents that result in brain injuries are:
- Fall accidents;
- Traffic collisions; and
- Victims being ‘struck’ by a foreign object.
No matter the specific circumstances of your accident, our West Palm Beach concussion lawyers can help. We will conduct an in-depth investigation of your claim and we will take whatever action is necessary to hold the negligent defendant legally accountable.
Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
All head injuries require immediate medical attention. If your loved one suffered a blow to the head, it is crucial that you get the appropriate medical care. Brain injuries are notoriously difficult to diagnose. In many cases, the full extent of the injury will not develop for days or even weeks. Early intervention is the key to making the best possible recovery. You should always follow up on any symptoms that indicate that the victim may have suffered a TBI. Some common symptoms of brain injuries include:
- General lethargy or fatigue;
- Intense headaches;
- Short term memory problems;
- Nausea and vomiting;
- Serious sleep issues;
- Loss of consciousness;
- Tingling or numbness in the extremities;
- Slurred speech;
- Seizures or the sudden loss of coordination; and
- Leaking fluid from the nose or ears.
