Brain injuries occur as a result of two different circumstances. Either a sudden impact causes the brain to collide with the skull, a closed head injury, or an object impacts the skull and damages the brain, an open head injury.
Brain injuries can cause incredibly serious medical problems, and they can change a person’s life forever. Brain injuries often occur from incidents like:
Building a TBI Case
Brain injuries can be difficult to detect, especially if they are closed head injuries because there are very few outer signs or symptoms. Brain injury symptoms and effects can even arise months after the incident that caused the brain injury occurred.
This can make your brain injury claim very difficult to handle through the court system without the experienced assistance of catastrophic injury attorneys like Brown & Brown, LLP.
Brain injuries that have not been diagnosed soon after the incident can cause serious problems. In order to detect a brain injury, look for symptoms and warning signs:
- Change in Behavior
- Mobility Difficulties
- Poor Balance
- Poor Coordination
- Impulsive Behavior
- Loss of Vision
- Loss of Taste
- Aggressive Behavior
- Inability to Focus
- Hearing Loss
- Breathing Difficulties
