Brain injuries can leave victims with lifelong injuries and disabilities, casting a wake of devastation in the lives of those affected. Medical bills associated with brain injuries can easily pile up, reaching in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Furthermore, many of these traumatic injuries lead to additional complications later on in life, requiring victims to have continuous medical care and assistance with daily activities that the rest of us take for granted. Trombly & Singer, PLLC provides clients with the aggressive legal representation and the help needed to pursue compensation for the burdens resulting from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). While no amount of money can turn back the hands of time, financial compensation can help alleviate the impact of medical bills, related expenses, and other losses such as the loss of future income.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Because the symptoms of a TBI can often mimic other health conditions, some victims may go undiagnosed for months and even years after their accidents. It is of the utmost importance to seek medical treatment immediately following any type of accident, even if no injuries appear to have surfaced. According to the Mayo Clinic, common symptoms of traumatic brain injuries include:
- Fatigue or drowsiness
- Dizziness or loss of balance
- Nausea or vomiting
- Conscious but being dazed, confused, or disoriented
- Loss of consciousness
- Blurred vision or ringing in the ears
- Sensitivity to sound or light
- Concentration or memory issues
- Mood changes
Research shows that brain injuries can impact people in completely different ways and that symptoms vary by the individual. All forms of brain injury are serious and victims should be entitled to compensation if their injuries were the result of the negligence of another party. If you believe you have sustained a TBI, seek medical attention immediately.
