A brain injury can occur in an accident even when there is no outward sign of damage. Symptoms of the injury may be passed off on other causes such as side effects from medication or stress from the accident. Unfortunately, the symptoms may not go away after other injuries have healed.
If you think your loved one may have suffered a brain injury in an accident, contact the attorneys of Gammon & Grange, P.C. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. With offices in McLean and Leesburg, our lawyers represent families throughout Virginia.
Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Brain injury may result from head trauma or hard whiplash that causes acceleration/deceleration of the brain inside the skull. The victim may or may not experience a period of unconsciousness and may not even realize that he or she has suffered an injury. Family members are often the first to notice that their loved one is not the same after an accident.
Symptoms of traumatic brain injury include:
- Sleeplessness (or sleeping more than usual)
- Difficulty following directions
- Cognitive difficulty
- Irritability and other personality changes
- Sensitivity to light or sound
Brain injuries may not be visible on an MRI or CT scan. You may need a neuropsychologist to assess your loved one using a series of tests.
While some symptoms may diminish with time and therapy, others may be permanent. Our lawyers will work hard to help you obtain the compensation you need to deal with the issues your family is facing.
