What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a “disruption in the normal function of the brain” caused by a blow to the head or by a penetrating head injury. Falls, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, contact sports, and assaults can cause traumatic brain injuries.

When a brain injury is caused by negligence or wrongdoing, the at-fault party may be held liable for paying the victim’s medical bills and other related expenses or losses.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury may range in severity depending on the extent of damage to the brain. Some minor injuries will resolve on their own, while others will cause permanent damage and disability. By recognizing the signs of a traumatic brain injury, you can be prepared to seek medical attention.

The following are danger signs of a brain injury:

  • Chronic or worsening headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Weakness
  • Numbness or decreased coordination
  • Drowsiness
  • Slurred speech
  • One pupil is larger than the other
  • Difficulty recognizing places or people
  • Confusion, restlessness, and agitation
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Convulsions or seizures

What are the Symptoms of Mild TBIs?

The symptoms of a mild TBI fall into three categories: physical, sensory, and cognitive.

Physical symptoms most often include loss of consciousness, lasting several seconds to a few minutes. If you don’t lose consciousness, you may have a feeling of being confused or disoriented. The injury may also come with a headache, speech problems, sleep trouble, and imbalance.

Sensory symptoms often cause blurry vision, hearing trouble, changes in taste, and difficulties with your ability to smell. Some of the cognitive symptoms you may experience include memory problems, behavioral issues, and depression.

What are the Symptoms of Moderate and Severe TBIs?

As the name implies, moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries involve some of the most damaging symptoms. Physical symptoms may include loss of consciousness lasting hours, convulsions, seizures, numbness in fingers or toes, and sleep trouble.

Cognitive symptoms can cause you to experience slurred speech. In the worst-case scenario, you may suffer a coma. You may also be combative to those around you, changes in eating habits, and have long-term confusion.

What Caused Your Brain Injury?

Identifying the cause of your (or a loved one’s) brain injury will be an essential part of recovering fair compensation, as it will help us determine who is responsible. In cases involving car, truck, or motorcycle accidents, it may be another driver or even the manufacturer of a defective auto part. Or, it could be a defective product or an unsafe workplace. A thorough investigation will reveal who is at fault.

At The Edwards Law Firm, our Corpus Christi brain injury attorneys work hard to represent you in your most challenging time. We’ll be by your side to determine who to hold liable, and we’ll pursue the compensation and justice you deserve.
