Today we’re going to talk about what are some of the signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury or TBI. My name is Adam Hepburn and I’m a brain injury attorney in San Diego and one of the partners here at HHJ Trial Attorneys and I deal a lot with clients who have suffered from brain injuries.
Now there are some times when a person suffers a brain injury and it’s very apparent. Whether it’s a fractured skull or at the ER they find out that they have a brain hemorrhage, those types of injuries are very easy to identify because their apparent, but there’s a lot of times when people suffer from brain injuries and there’s not an outside physical manifestation, but instead we have to look at the signs and symptoms. What’s their symptomatology?
Some of the things that you might experience if you have a brain injury can be nausea. You can have visual disturbances, blurred vision, you can have trouble hearing. You can also have a change in your emotions. You can be irritable, you can be tired. There’s a variety of different characteristics that you’ll want to look out for, and it’s really important to identify them because you can get help and you can get treatment. But before you do that. We have to know that you have a brain injury.
If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.
