Recovering From Traumatic Brain Injuries

Serious accidents can have serious consequences. A blow to the head can result in more than just a headache, and it is important to be aware of what is at stake in these accidents.

At Westland & Bennett P.C., we know how severe the injuries resulting from a car collision or other accident can be, and we know what is necessary to cover the costs of these situations. In addition to helping our Indiana and Illinois clients with their personal injury needs, we also want to help them recognize the signs of catastrophic injuries.

Identifying Symptoms Of Traumatic Brain Injuries

A concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be some of the most dangerous consequences of an accident, but also one of the hardest to recognize. Some signs of these injuries include:

  • Trouble sleeping or staying awake
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Fainting
  • Seizures
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Asymmetrical dilation of pupils

Repeated concussions can also create long-term or permanent brain damage, making them more serious than most people consider them to be. There are also many different types of TBIs, which all can have different symptoms. In addition to concussions, some other types of TBIs include:

  • Brain hemorrhages
  • Contusions
  • Penetrating brain injury
  • Intracranial hematomas
  • Second impact syndrome

With so many different TBIs, it is important to have the correct identification and assessment of what you are going through and how it may impact your life. This can help ensure your injury compensation grants you the resources you need to cover all your costs.
