The seriousness of mild brain injuries

Despite the fact that more awareness of traumatic brain injuries is being spread by the media, particularly when it comes to sport-related injuries, concussions and other types of head injuries has still not fully understood by medical professionals or the general public. Unfortunately, the attorneys at Harting, Simkins & Ryan, L.L.P., see many cases where accident victims with mild TBIs are not properly diagnosed or compensated for their injuries because the full severity of their symptoms are not realized until long after the accident incident occurred. If you or a loved one were involved in any kind of car accident, it can be incredibly helpful to understand the delayed signs and symptoms of a possible brain injury.

The first thing that is important to remember when discussing mild TBIs is that they can have serious, long-lasting consequences for accident victims and their families. According to traumaticbraininjury.com, you can suffer everything from memory loss to cognitive difficulties to severe headaches even if you suffered a brain injury that didn’t result in you losing consciousness fully. Other common mild TBI symptoms include:

  • Confusion and/or disorientation
  • Changes in mood
  • Sensory deficits and/or disturbances

The difficulty in accurately identifying and treating mild TBI symptoms is that it can take days or weeks for them to manifest in some cases. Therefore, you and your loved ones may not begin to notice that something is wrong until long after your car accident happened. It is also important to note that TBI symptoms can appear differently and/or later depending on your age.

And while mild TBI symptoms can take an extended amount of time to appear, they can be serious and permanent. Learn more about car accident injuries like TBIs by visiting our web page.
