About Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
A traumatic brain injury (TBI), can greatly impact your ability to live your life as you did before the accident that caused it. It is important to get a thorough evaluation of any injury. This is especially true of brain injuries.
Be sure to let your doctor know about every change that you detect after a head injury, no matter how insignificant you consider your symptoms to be. Just as importantly, get legal advice as soon as you can after a head injury. At Kirilloff Jowers, P.A., we are ready to help you.
Diagnostic Challenges And Common Symptoms
Brain injuries can be hard to detect and don’t always show up on diagnostic testing. Serious brain injuries in adults may result in a variety of symptoms including dizziness, constant headaches, blurred vision, memory loss, nausea and vomiting, trouble sleeping, sensitivity to light, impaired coordination, altered mood or behavior, reduced cognitive function and seizures. Children who suffer from a brain injury often experience irritability, changes in eating and sleeping habits, loss of interest, unsteadiness and vomiting.
Closed-head injuries are often less obvious than open-head injuries, but they can be just as problematic. The biggest issue for many sufferers of closed-head injuries is that these injuries often go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Many brain injuries that are originally described as concussions trigger more serious problems over time, especially if they go undiagnosed and inadequately treated.
