Common Side Effects of Brain Injuries

A head injury of any magnitude may cause a constellation of immediate and long-lasting problems such as migraine headaches, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, problems multi-tasking, inability to hold down a job, difficulties fulfilling one's usual role in their family life, loss of quality and enjoyment of life because you can no longer engage in your favorite activities, and sometimes even debilitating seizures.

Closed head injury claims and lawsuits can be particularly challenging because of the hidden nature of the injury. After an accident, a head injury patient may appear normal to others, but suffer from a post-concussive syndrome that does not show up on a MRI or a CT scan. Victims of "mild" traumatic brain injuries and their families know all too well that the consequences of lasting brain injuries are anything but mild. Our firm knows how to handle such cases.

Common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue and drowsiness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Inability to balance
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Inability to smell
  • Trouble remembering
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • High levels of anxiety
  • Unusual sensitivity to light

What Are the Various Types of Brain Injury?

Each type of brain injury has particular short-term and long-term consequences. Aggressive, state-of-the-art medical treatment and therapy can improve outcomes for many patients. Since 1977, our lawyers have been helping brain injury victims and their families find and gain access to needed treatment and practical assistance.

The Brain Injury Association of America categorizes brain injuries as:

  • Penetrating injury
  • Diffuse axonal injury
  • Concussion
  • Contusion
  • Coup-contrecoup injury
  • Second impact syndrome
  • Shaken baby syndrome
  • Anoxic brain injury
  • Hypoxic brain injury
  • Open head injury
  • Closed head injury

Understanding the Severity of TBI

In most cases, traumatic brain injuries fall into three different categories: mild, moderate, and severe. Even head injuries that are deemed as “mild” will result in serious health challenges and difficulties.

Injury victims may suffer from the following:

  • Cognitive problems, which include impaired memory, lack of concentration, poor attention span, slowed learning, difficulty reasoning, and other issues.
  • Emotional and behavioral problems, which include depression, irritability, aggression, and other behavioral changes.
  • Physical problems, which include fatigue, headaches, loss of coordination, sensory losses, sleep disturbance, coma, hemorrhage and seizures.

WHAT OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR TREATMENT?

After a serious head injury, a patient is likely to find effective treatment, therapies, and rehabilitation in a hospital, in a rehabilitation facility, through outpatient treatment, in support groups, and in therapeutic settings. For best results, we recommend that you start your care with a doctor who specializes in your particular type of head injury. Because these types of treatment can be extremely costly, it is urgent for brain injury victims to retain the help of a skilled brain injury lawyer. A seasoned injury attorney can determine which legal strategies can help the victim recover compensation for such therapy and treatment processes.

What Will The Recovery Process Be Like?

Depending on the severity of your brain injury, the recovery process can be lengthy or short. In most cases, you will need rest so that your body can recover. Studies show that a majority of the recovery progress occurs within the first six months of the injury. In severe cases, it may be difficult and impossible for a person to recover completely. As a result, the human body will find alternate ways to cope with the changes, and the person may learn other ways to compensate and become more functional. It is important to speak with a knowledgeable physician regarding your recovery process, since these processes range on a case-by-case basis.

Will Life Ever Seem Normal Again?

If you have a mild case, you may feel much better after two to three months, after five to six months or after a year. However, people who have suffered moderate or severe brain injuries, or even some who have sustained mild brain injuries, will suffer the consequences of their injuries for the rest of their life. Nevertheless, through cognitive behavioral therapy, the victim can learn compensatory strategies so that he or she can function as well as possible given the limitations caused by the brain injury.
