Common Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms
After an accident, a brain injury may not be immediately apparent. If you have suffered head trauma, you should see a medical doctor as a matter of urgency. Some of the symptoms to look out for that may indicate a traumatic brain injury include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Sensitivity to light or noise
- Difficulty concentrating
- Mood swings
- Blurred vision
- Changes in behavior
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms after an accident, you should seek medical attention immediately.
Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
The Centers for Diseases Control (CDC) reports that almost half of traumatic brain injury-related hospitalizations are the result of falls. Motor vehicle crashes, assaults and firearm-related suicides make up the other half.
Depending on the severity, traumatic brain injuries can result in either short-term or long-term health problems.
Getting Compensation for Your Brain Injury
If your brain injury was the result of another’s negligence or wrongdoing, you will have to prove your case to get financial compensation for your brain injury. To succeed in a case based on negligence, the victim must prove that the defendant owed them a duty of care, which was breached. For example, in a car accident, every driver owes other road users a duty of care and must operate their vehicle safely to avoid causing harm to others. Speeding, driving while intoxicated, or reckless driving are a breach of the duty of care owed to other road users. The victim must also prove that the defendant’s breach of their duty of care was the proximate cause of their injury. And, finally the victim must prove that they suffered actual damages because of their injury.
Proving your case requires legal skill and expert evidence. At Craft Law Firm in Waco, we have the resources to provide the skill and evidence required to support your claim and get you full compensation for the damages you have suffered. Putting together a winning case requires time, which is why you must act quickly after your injury. Under Texas law, you must file your case within two years from the day of the incident that caused your injury.
