Suffered a Brain Injury? Check the Symptoms
Connecticut Head Injury and Concussion Accident Attorney
While a skilled physician can properly diagnose even minor head trauma in victims of an accident, the rest of us often misinterpret brain injury symptoms that were not present prior to the injury. Uncharacteristic irritability or anger, difficulty in saying the right words or expressing thoughts, trouble paying attention to conversations, and challenges performing daily routines can be indicators of a potentially serious brain injury.
At the Hartford, Connecticut, law firm of Polinsky Law Group LLC, Attorneys At Law, we provide information and representation tailored to help you and your family understand your options after a brain injury accident. If you believe that you or an injured family member shows any unusual physical symptoms or changes in personality, we encourage you to seek proper medical attention immediately. For legal guidance in an accident injury case, contact us. We offer a free evaluation by an experienced attorney.
Understanding Brain Injury Symptoms After an Accident
From headaches to a deep coma, brain injury symptoms can reveal themselves quickly or slowly following serious brain and head trauma in an accident. Symptoms include:
- Dizziness or balance issues
- Difficulty sleeping
- Constant fatigue
- Brief fainting spells
- Memory problems
- Trouble concentrating
- Trouble speaking
- Behavior changes
- Mood swings
Some injury accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries that leave people in an obviously abnormal state. Other signs of brain injury appear days or even weeks after a car accident, bicycle accident or injury at a jobsite. It is important to be aware of more subtle symptoms such as difficulty handling noisy environments, trouble focusing on a magazine or TV show and other hidden signs of compromised mental ability.
