Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Houston Injury Attorney Discusses Common Signs of TBI
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are severe brain injuries that are generally caused by an external impact that results in the brain colliding with the interior of the skull. Although the effects of TBIs are sometimes temporary, TBIs are often fatal and many TBI survivors sustain long-term impairments or permanent disability.
If you or a family member suffered a brain injury due to the negligence of another, Houston brain injury attorney Tony Malley may be able to help you pursue financial compensation, including money for medical costs, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
Traumatic brain injuries are accompanied by a number of symptoms that will vary by individual depending on the source of the injury and other factors. While some symptoms, such as unconsciousness, may be immediate, other symptoms, such as memory problems, may take days to become evident.
Symptoms of TBIs typically include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Blurry vision or double vision
- Clear fluid or blood leaking from the ears or nose
- Nausea or vomiting
- Behavior changes
- Cognitive difficulties
- Memory loss
- Motor function loss
- Numbness or tingling in the extremities
- Pupils that vary in size or do not respond to light
- Ringing in the ears
- Respiratory difficulty
Because TBI symptoms are not always immediately present, it’s important to undergo a medical evaluation if you or a loved one suffered any jarring impact, such as that sustained in a traffic collision, that may have caused trauma to the head.
Traumatic brain injuries are often the result of:
- Truck and commercial vehicle accidents
- Personal watercraft accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Auto accidents
- Workplace accidents
