Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a form of injury that results from sudden, extreme blows to the head. TBI can happen in a car or motorcycle accident, on a construction worksite, during a slip & fall, at the workplace, or in any other circumstance in which a person’s head experiences significant trauma. TBI is one of the most dangerous injuries to suffer in an accident, with potentially long-lasting consequences including loss of functionality, disability, and even death. TBI cases are particularly difficult to litigate because of the complexity of the symptoms and lasting effects that may be involved.

Symptoms of Brain Injury
A head injury can have a variety of effects ranging from physical to cognitive and even emotional. When injury to the brain is involved, because the symptoms may be internal and personal, they can be more difficult to identify. Symptoms may take days to appear following a traumatic head injury, but they should never be ignored. Immediate medical attention should be sought to ensure that your injury is properly diagnosed and that you start treatment as soon as possible. The following is a list of potential symptoms from TBI.
- Blurred vision
- Unusual headaches or migraines
- Cognitive difficulties such as trouble focusing or difficulties with regular tasks
- Slowness in thinking, speaking, reading, or performing other tasks
- Loss of energy
- Difficulty sleeping or sleeping more than usual

Many of the symptoms of TBI may be subtle at first and grow over time. If you were in an accident that involved head trauma, you should see a physician to identify any possible brain injury. If you experience any of these symptoms in the days after the accident, consult further with a medical professional. TBI damage can affect both physical and mental capacities, compounding the problem and adding strain and frustration to the difficult recovery process. Loved ones may be caught in the fallout, suffering along with the accident victim. You should not have to deal with legal issues on top of dealing with your recovery. Goldman Law, P.A. can help.
