Seemingly minor symptoms could indicate major brain injury

On Behalf of | Nov 5, 2019 | Uncategorized

Brain injuries are some of the most severe types of trauma that a person can experience, and car accidents are one of the leading causes of this specific type of injury. The way that a traumatic brain injury can affect a person differs from case to case. Sometimes, people who have a TBI are not immediately aware of the extent of their injury. 

Because of the serious nature of TBIs, a person who hit his or her head in an accident or has certain types of symptoms after a crash would be wise to seek medical attention. Brain injuries can impact function, motor skills and many other areas of life. If you were recently in a car accident in Louisiana, you may want to learn more about the signs that could indicate that you are suffering from a potential brain injury.

Signs of a problem

The aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming and busy. You may not really be paying attention to the pain you are experiencing or other issues because you may be dealing with a damaged vehicle, insurance companies and other complex things. However, symptoms that you may have dismissed as minor may actually indicate a serious ongoing problem – a TBI. Some of these commonly overlooked symptoms include: 

  • Bouts of dizziness and light-headedness
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • Blurred vision and other sensory problems
  • Significant mood swings or changes in personality
  • Problems with concentration or making decisions
  • Slurred speech or having trouble focusing on a conversation

You may think you are just tired or stressed. In reality, you could be dealing with a serious injury. It is smart to seek a complete medical assessment in order to understand exactly what you may be dealing with. If you do have a TBI, you may need extensive medical care and have a lengthy recovery period. 

What are your options?

You may be wondering exactly what you should do after a car accident or after you believe you suffered a brain injury in a car accident. If the accident that caused you harm is the result of the reckless or negligent actions of another driver, you could have grounds to move forward with a civil claim.

This specific course of action is a way by which you may be able to claim compensation that will cover your accident-related losses and other needs. To learn more about personal injury laws in Louisiana and the legal options available to you, it can help to reach out for guidance promptly.
