Symptoms Of A Traumatic Brain Injury
There are many different types of head injuries that can cause brain damage, including skull fracture, oxygen deprivation, head impacts and hard whiplash. The victim may or may not lose consciousness for a period of time following the trauma.
Symptoms of a brain injury may include:
- Migraines or chronic headache
- Ringing in the ears or tinnitus
- Blurred vision or sensitivity to light
- Short-term memory problems
- Difficulty concentrating or following directions
- Sleeplessness or sleeping too much
- Problems with balance or coordination
- Difficulty controlling emotions
- Personality change
Brain damage may not be visible using radiological magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or a computed tomography (CT) scan. To diagnose whether a brain injury has occurred, it’s important to see a qualified doctor such as a neuropsychologist, a neurologist, or both. Without medical documentation, the insurance company of the liable party may deny that the brain injury exists.
