Common Signs and Symptoms
In many cases, traumatic brain injury symptoms can take days or even weeks before they appear. Regardless if you experience symptoms, however, you must be seen by a doctor as soon as possible to improve the success of your claim and avoid bearing the financial burden of any injury-related medical bills.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, seek emergency medical attention:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Loss of consciousness, even for a few seconds
- Clear fluid draining from the ears or nose
- Slurred speech
- Loss of balance
- Double vision
Additionally, traumatic brain injury survivors commonly experience sensory problems, fatigue, depression, dizziness, trouble sleeping or waking up, issues with concentration, and difficulty processing information.
Long-Term Health Complications
Repeated traumatic blows or jolts to the head, such as the ones frequently sustained in sporting activities, can sometimes lead to progressive neurological disorders like chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is known to cause poor impulse control, cognition problems, confusion, and depression. Although it is more common in individuals who are exposed to repeat traumatic brain injuries, it is possible for a single severe blow to the head to progress into a condition similar to CTE, known as post-traumatic dementia (PTD).
Brain Injuries in Children
Although people often believe children have an easier time bouncing back from injuries, this is not the case when it comes to severe brain injuries. A child’s brain is still in the developmental phase and brain injury can disrupt it, resulting in a vast range of symptoms and learning disabilities.
Common brain injury symptoms in children include:
- Changes in academic performance
- Loss of certain skills
- Changes in play
- Changes in eating habits
- Inability to pay attention
