Brain Injury Symptoms
Symptoms of brain injury are often present immediately following an accident. These can include:
- A loss of consciousness
- Confusion or memory loss
- Uneven pupil dilation
- Clear liquids draining from the ears and nose
- Dizziness and/or nausea
These symptoms are a clear indication of brain injury and frequently demand emergency treatment from a physician. However, not all symptoms of brain injury are so quick to manifest.
If you have sustained brain injury in an accident, please contact The Hornbuckle Firm online or by calling (425) 679-0742 today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Seattle personal injury attorneys.
Delayed Symptoms Of Brain Injury
Unlike many injuries, it is not uncommon for those who have sustained a brain injury to be unaware of damage for weeks, months, and potentially even years after an accident. Delayed symptoms of brain injury may include:
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Uncontrollable aggression or anger
- Inappropriate emotional outbursts including crying and laughing
- Depression and anxiety
- Difficulties speaking
- Difficulties concentrating
- Vision changes
- Chronic headaches
Brain injury as a cause of these symptoms is frequently overlooked – particularly when they occur long after an accident. Unfortunately, when these symptoms are a result of brain injury, they may also be an indication of irreversible damage. This is why it is vital that you seek medical assistance after any accident involving head trauma, even if you were cleared from the scene by EMTs.
Dealing With A Brain Injury Diagnosis
Recovering from brain injury, regardless of when it is diagnosed, can require significant medical intervention. Depending on the extent of injury, various therapeutic practices may be ongoing and full recovery is never guaranteed. The cost of these treatments, accompanying technology, and potential home modifications can be astronomical. Without the assistance of an experienced brain injury attorney, you may never receive even a fraction of what your injury demands.
