Any head injury should be immediately addressed to determine if you sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A TBI can result from any type of head injury, and can have lasting effects on the brain, especially if left untreated.
Even mild traumatic brain injuries will require medical attention that can be costly. If you developed a TBI during an incident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

Traumatic Brain Injury Causes
On the mild end of the TBI spectrum falls concussions. A concussion is a very common injury that can often be treated with rest and relaxation. Increasingly more intense traumatic brain injuries occur frequently as well, but require much more specialized treatment to recover.
A traumatic brain injury can result from any violent trauma to the head, including events such as:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall incidents
- Work accidents
- Injuries sustained while playing contact sports
- Assault and attacks
Symptoms of a TBI
The harm level of a traumatic brain injury can range from mild, to moderate, to severe. All types of TBI can damage the brain, leading to serious injury, impairment, and death in extreme cases.
Some of the most common signs of a traumatic brain injury include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Feeling dizzy, disoriented, confused, or off-balance
- Nauseas and vomiting
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Trouble seeing, blurred vision, or sensitivity to light
- Cognitive issues
- Mood swings or unusual moods
The severity of these symptoms often indicates what type of TBI was sustained. Moderate to severe TBI victims may also exhibit numbness of seizures. To determine how exactly a traumatic brain injury has affected you, and receive the proper treatment, it is crucial to see a doctor as soon as possible.
