Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
in Car Accidents
NYC Auto Accident Lawyers Since 1983
The brain is delicate, which means a sudden blow or jolt to the head can do serious harm — even when the skull is not fractured in any way. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most serious injuries a person can suffer, and it can be particularly difficult to diagnose.
At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City car accident lawyers are experienced at helping vehicle accident victims identify the causes and consequences of their head injuries and pursue full compensation they deserve from the responsible parties.
Identifying the Symptoms of Brain Damage
A TBI is a trauma to the head that causes brain damage. The trauma could be a skull fracture, a concussion, or the experience of having one’s head suddenly shaken back and forth or side to side. TBI can result from nearly any type of vehicle accident, ranging from serious rear-end collisions to rollovers and semi-truck accidents. The amount of force placed on the human body by a vehicle collision can often result in serious brain damage.
Some of the most common symptoms of TBI include:
- Sudden mood changes
- Blurry vision
- Difficulty remembering
- Loss of consciousness
- Fatigue or even difficulty sleeping
- Loss of balance
The symptoms can start to appear right away or even take a few weeks to become more noticeable. What someone may think is just the symptoms of whiplash or a minor head injury could actually be signs of a serious traumatic brain injury. This is why it is important to consult with a medical professional right away.
