What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?
After a serious accident, one of the major problems can be that not all injuries are readily observed. Sometimes injuries will only come to light in the days, weeks or months after an accident. One of the types of these injuries that someone can suffer includes closed head injuries, also known as traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Injuries to the brain can exhibit symptoms that range from the severe to the subtle. No matter where an injury falls on that spectrum, a person is going to need real help.
The first problem is often correctly identifying the injury. In more subtle injuries, the symptoms may be easily overlooked. While primary symptoms may be easy to observe such headache, nausea, dizziness, loss of consciousness and seizures, there are secondary symptoms that might be missed, including:
- Memory loss
- Personality change
- Cognitive disabilities
The problems people face after suffering a closed head injury can even include issues as seemingly inconsequential as a change in sense of smell. While that may seem like a minor issue, it can destroy your ability to taste and enjoy food.
You deserve to be fully compensated for the challenges you are facing from a closed head injury.
