Symptoms of Brain Injury

 

Miami, Plantation & Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Many of the symptoms of brain injury occur as soon as trauma is sustained. These symptoms include:
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Uneven pupil dilation
  • Clear fluids draining from the nose or ears
  • Confusion
  • Inability to stand
  • Communication difficulties

These symptoms often point to serious brain injury and may necessitate emergency medical intervention. They are also most commonly identified by EMTs on the scene of an accident.

Other symptoms of brain injury however may not be immediately present, making it important to know how to identify injury in the weeks and months that follow.

Delayed Symptoms of Brain Injury

Symptoms of brain injury that may occur weeks, months, or even years following an accident include:

  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Speech irregularities
  • Vision disruptions
  • Loss of coordination
  • Mood swings
  • Inappropriate emotional responses
  • Excessive aggression or anger
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

These symptoms are often an indication of untreated brain injury and should be discussed with a physician as soon as possible. The sooner brain injury is detected the better your chances of a successful recovery.

Seeking Legal Help

Brain injury rehabilitation and recovery often requires expensive medical assistance. Working is commonly impossible during treatment and long-term modifications may be necessary even after you have reached peak recovery. When your brain injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for these and related damages.

In Florida, you are limited in how long you have to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. This is why it is always a good idea to see a doctor as soon as possible following an accident to determine if an as of yet undetected injury has occurred. Not only can swift detection allow for better treatment, it gives you an opportunity to take legal action and seek compensation for all of your damages.
