Traumatic Brain Injury is very serious

It can occur in a variety of ways. Brain injury can occur when there is a rapid acceleration and deceleration of the brain as in whiplash or shaken baby syndrome. This type of injury is sometimes referred to as a "closed head injury". Brain injury can also result when the head comes into contact with another object as in a motorcycle accident or a blow to the head. Unlike a closed head injury where it may not be possible to tell that the person is injured just by looking at them, this type of brain injury usually has outward manifestations of injury such as a skull fracture. The injuries that result from brain injury can be long lasting and sometimes difficult to prove, especially when there aren't outward physical manifestations of the injury. In fact, a mild traumatic brain injury can be sustained, yet routine neurological examinations will be normal.

Traumatic Brain Injury has many symptoms

Someone who has suffered a brain injury may experience physical, cognitive and behavioral problems. Physical symptoms that result from brain injury include lethargy, fatigue, headache, vision problems, and sleep disturbance. Cognitive problems that may be due to brain injury include inability to concentrate or pay attention, difficulty with memory, difficulty with planning, and trouble either understanding or producing speech. Behavior problems resulting from brain injury include, mood swings, irritability, and lack of inhibition. Many of these problems may be attributed to depression, when they are in fact a result of the brain injury. This is especially true in instances of mild traumatic brain injury since there may be little other evidence of physical injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury is hard to diagnose

For that reason it can be hard for a person who has suffered a traumatic brain injury to recover adequate damages for their injuries. It can be difficult to prove the lasting physical effects of brain injury to the satisfaction of a judge or jury when there are no apparent physical injuries and when neurological exams return normal results.

You need a qualified brain injury attorney

Because of this it is a good idea to consult with an attorney who has experience with traumatic brain injury cases. An attorney with prior experience in this area is more likely to be aware of the multitude of long-term effects that can plague a brain injury victim. He or she also has experience with effective methods of proving the impact of these effects to juries.
