Signs and Symptoms of Brain Injuries

Our Brain Injury Lawyers Know TBIs.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can occur when your head experiences physical trauma. Although the damage occurs at the moment of impact, symptoms may not develop until hours or even days after the accident. Untreated brain injuries can lead to severe complications—including permanent physical or mental disabilities.

If you or a loved one suffered a TBI that was caused by someone else’s negligence—or carelessness—you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. At John Bales Attorneys, our brain injury lawyers have helped many people get the money they deserve after brain injuries, and we can help you, too.

Types of TBI Symptoms

Not all brain injuries are the same. Mild TBIs—or concussions—can produce minor injuries that heal without intervention to more serious injuries that require hospitalization. Other brain injuries can be so severe that the victim’s life may change forever.

A medical professional may be able to determine the extent of you or your loved one’s brain injury by watching for the following symptoms:

Mild TBI
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Temporary confusion

Moderate TBI

  • Changes in smell or taste
  • Slurred speech
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Loss of coordination

Severe TBI

  • Amnesia
  • Change in personality
  • Coma
  • Paralysis
  • Seizures
