The Hidden Dangers of a Mild TBI

The Hidden Dangers of a Mild TBI

Posted By Maher Law Firm || 1-Sep-2017

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur from any number of accidents or incidents that deliver a blow, jolt, or even a penetrating wound to the brain. This serious injury afflicts nearly 2 million individuals annually in the United States alone. However, despite its potential severity, TBIs often go undetected and untreated, especially since symptoms are not often immediately apparent in the aftermath of sustaining the injury. Without proper treatment, even a mild TBI can pose a danger to one’s health and cause further damage, disability, or death.

Below are some of the most common symptoms of a TBI:

  • Confusion
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Seizures
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Vision problems
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory loss
  • Fatigue

Additionally, common delayed symptoms of a TBI include insomnia, depression, and persistent migraines. When left untreated, TBIs can lead to lifelong conditions such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.

Unfortunately, these injuries often go unnoticed, particularly if it is a closed head injury, and are often brushed aside as minor. If you have been injured in an accident, it is crucial to see a doctor as soon as possible. You might feel fine, but a major problem could be brewing without you even being aware of it. Your doctor will be able to run tests and monitor any possible side effects. Only a trained medical professional can determine the severity of your injury or if serious treatments are required to prevent or minimize any possible damage.

Seeing a doctor is especially critical if your injury was caused by the negligence of another party and you plan on pursuing a personal injury claim. Your doctor’s visit will support your claim and make it easier to pursue the compensation you deserve and need to recover from your injury.
