What are common signs of a brain injury?

540-904-1621


The signs and symptoms of a brain injury may vary, and may potentially be confused with another injury. Due to the seriousness of brain injuries, however, it is important to properly identify and treat them as quickly as possible so that a Virginian may have optimal chances of recovery.

When a Virginian has suffered a head injury, there are a number of symptoms to be on the lookout for to spot possible brain trauma. A person who is unusually tired or sluggish following a head impact may be suffering from a brain injury. Nausea or dizziness may also indicate that a head injury has resulted in brain damage, as may a severe headache. If a person is having weakness or numbness on one side of his body, this can be a sign that he is suffering from potential brain damage. Difficulty recalling recent events or other confusion can also be a sign of a brain injury.

Any of the aforementioned symptoms could mean a possible brain injury. In such a situation, a victim should receive immediate medical care to address his or her medical needs. Frighteningly, it is also possible for a victim not to display any of these symptoms and yet to still have a brain injury. Following a head trauma, a medical professional can evaluate an injured Virginian's condition to help determine whether a person has suffered from a brain injury or not.

There are many potential medical repercussions of a head injury, including bruising of the brain, as well as tearing in the brain. A brain injury can result in tremendous trauma for a person physically and can have a major impact on a person's life. If you or a loved one has suffered from a brain injury due to another's negligence, you may wish to consider consulting with legal counsel to discuss potential options for financial recovery.
