How to Recover from A Brain Injury

Personal injury accidents that involve traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are complex, emotional, and life-altering.

The impact of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries on an individual’s life and loved ones are overwhelming and, more often than not, amazingly complex. If you or a loved one have a brain or spinal cord injury due to someone else's negligence, contact an experienced personal injury attorney.

Common Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Brain and spinal cord injuries can sometimes cause a variety of effects, but a few common ones include:

  • Shortened attention span
  • Memory loss
  • Language and speech deficits
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Changes in senses
  • Increased pain
  • Loss of balance
  • Paralysis
  • Sleep disorder
  • Headaches
  • Seizure
  • Fatigue

Like all other injuries, brain and spinal cord injuries commonly result from car and motorcycle accidents and workplace injuries. Unlike most other injuries though, brain injuries require specialized medical attention and distinct treatment.

Legal Aspects of Brain Injuries

Severe trauma to a person’s brain or spinal cord, unlike fractured bones or broken limbs, may not cause a noticeable change in a person’s health. In fact, an accurate diagnosis may only be reached after costly trial and error. There are only a limited number of medical professionals who have the skills and expertise to make a conclusive determination of brain injuries not caused by a penetrating or “open head” wound.

Especially with what are known as “closed head” injuries, symptoms can be as mild as:

  • Recurrent headaches
  • Seizures
  • Confusion
  • And other cognitive problems.

Unfortunately, unless an accurate diagnosis is made, an individual who is injured may not be likely to recover financial compensation for this type of personal injury.

The symptoms that result from serious brain and spinal cord injuries dramatically affect a person’s life—from short-term hospitalization to the need for life-long care. Even the mildest symptoms may be indicators of serious brain injury.
