The symptoms of a TBI vary by the severity of the injury. Some signs of a traumatic brain injury may be apparent immediately, while other may not appear for weeks or months after the incident that caused the TBI. The symptoms include:

• Being dazed and disoriented;

• Brief loss of consciousness

• Headaches

• Fatigue

• Nausea and vomiting

• Blurred vision

• Bad taste in mouth

• Changes in ability to smell

• Sensitivity to light or noise

• Difficulty concentrating or making decisions

• Depression and anxiety.

An experienced attorney, skilled in handling traumatic brain injuries can help your family deal with the effects of the injury and seek compensation for the accident that caused the brain injury. If your family member has a severe brain injury, make sure that you work with a dedicated lawyer who understands the profound effects of this catastrophic injury on the TBI survivor and his or her family.

Elderly adults are especially at risk of fall-related traumatic brain injuries, hospitalization and in some cases death. An older adult may suffer a fall and head injury because of unsafe conditions at a commercial property such as wet floors or trip hazards at a retail store, restaurant or hotel.

Car crashes and motorcycle accidents cause many serious brain injuries. Young adults between the ages of 15 and 24 sustain brain injuries in car accidents and sports-related accidents such as skiing and contact sports. Being thrown from a motorcycle is a common cause of brain injuries that are often caused by the negligence of another driver. If the brain injury was caused by someone else’s disregard for safety, the brain injury survivor may be entitled to seek compensation.
