What are the Symptoms of a Brain Injury?
Brain injuries are one type of injury commonly suffered in accidents. As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 2.5 million people suffer some degree of brain injuries in the United States on an annual basis. A large amount of brain injury victims are left with permanent disabilities or even die from their injuries. Even those victims who eventually make a full recovery have to go through a long, arduous, and costly recovery period. Fortunately, if your brain injury was caused by another person’s negligence, an experienced Alpharetta attorney at Boling Rice, LLC can help you recovery for all of your injury-related losses.
Common Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
You may suffer a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, from even a slight bump or jostle of the head. In addition, many symptoms may be relatively minor and victims may not immediately recognize them as signs of a brain injury. Some common symptoms include:
- Blurry vision
- Problems with taste or smell
- Trouble putting thoughts into words
- Personality changes
- Disorientation or confusion
Even if they were involved in an accident, people may attribute the above symptoms to stress or lingering anxiety from the accident and not from a brain injury. As a result, many people do not seek medical attention in a timely manner for their TBI.
Even if you do seek medical attention, recovering from a brain injury can take time. In the meantime, most of the effects of the injury will not be readily apparent to other people. For this reason, brain injuries are often referred to as “invisible” injuries. The lack of recognition of your struggles only makes brain injury recovery that much more challenging and can have emotional consequences such as depression.
