5 long-term symptoms of traumatic brain injury

April 30, 2017 | McCormick & Murphy's Blog

You sustained a head injury in a car, motorcycle, truck or bike accident. You may have suffered concussion symptoms: confusion, drowsiness, headache, nausea, balance issues. Eventually you began feeling decent again. Are you in the clear? Think again.

Patients who have suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, may develop further symptoms — including seizures, vision issues, depression, suicide, aggression, endocrine dysfunction, psychosis, social isolation, dementia and premature death — six months or more after the accident. What’s more, previously experienced symptoms may re-emerge later in life, according to Ohio State University.

Here’s a handy visual from the lawyers at McCormick & Murphy personal injury firm in Colorado that will help you remember some of the TBI symptoms that may appear, reappear or persist long after your accident.

What’s an accident victim to do without any idea of what TBI symptoms the future may hold? Our best advice: Continue to seek the medical care you need to stay healthy, and contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible for a free, no obligation case review. Your lawyer will work to obtain the compensation you and your family will need for future accident-related expenses — and she won’t get paid unless you do.
