What Are Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
TBI symptoms are not always consistent or obvious. For this reason, it is not always easy to determine when someone sustained this severe type of injury. Accidents that result in traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury are among the most serious. These types of injuries can require victims to endure life-long treatments, and change their lives forever. Reno brain injury lawyer Eric A. Stovall has experience working with TBI victims, and he can put his knowledge and skill to work for you.
What Kind of Symptoms Should I Watch For?
You should be on the lookout for any combination of these possible head injury symptoms:
- Difficulty paying attention and/or focusing
- Personality changes
- Mood swings
- Trouble with your memory
- Loss of muscle coordination and/or control
- Feeling of frequent fatigue
- Loss of sensation
- Problems communicating
Have Open Discussions Regarding Symptoms with Your Doctor
Doctors recognize certain types of accidents to be more likely to cause brain injuries than other types. Doctors are more likely to look for a TBI if you were involved in a car accident than if you had a minor slip and fall accident. However, brain injuries can occur in accidents that do not seem serious at first. If you are experiencing symptoms that are common in victims of TBI, then you should tell your doctor everything you noticed. You know yourself and your body better than any doctor does. Remember that doctors only rely on the information you give them in conjunction with any tests they perform to determine the extent of your injuries.
