When a person suffers an injury to an arm or leg, it can affect their mobility or function to various degrees. If it’s not permanent, healing occurs at some point and things go back to “normal.”
With a traumatic brain injury, this is not the case. A brain injury can affect every aspect of a person’s life, including his or her personality. The symptoms can range from mild to severe. In a mild injury the victim can remain conscious or only experiences unconsciousness for a few seconds. He or she can feel confused, dizzy, tired or moody. He or she may also experience a strange taste in their mouth and have difficulty concentrating or thinking.
A headache that won’t go away or continues to get worse is a sign of a more serious injury. Repeated vomiting, blurred vision, loss of coordination and other symptoms also indicate a moderate to severe injury. In about half of the cases of severe injury to the brain, surgery is necessary. Moreover, symptoms may not appear for days or weeks following the accident.
If you or someone you know has possibly suffered from a traumatic brain injury, you should seek immediate medical attention and then the counsel of a Utah personal injury lawyer at Summit Injury Law.
Clearly the consequences of a traumatic brain injury can be heartbreaking and devastating to an individual and his or her family. When this is the result of a workplace injury, a motor vehicle accident, a sports injury or even a ski/snowboard accident then you must find a trusted personal injury attorney to help put your life back together. The emotional, mental and physical recovery from such an event takes considerable time and resources. Financial compensation can help greatly in the recovery process.
