Brain Injury Symptoms
Any impact to the head can cause a brain injury, but not all brain injuries are obvious after an accident. If you suspect a brain injury, look for the following symptoms:
- poor memory and difficulty concentrating,
- strange sensations, including tastes and smells,
- difficulty speaking or understanding others,
- or changes in behavior or personality.
If one or more of these symptoms are present, you may have suffered a brain injury. An Ohio brain injury lawyer at Nurenberg Paris is familiar with the effects of brain injuries, and we have built the resources to help our clients achieve the best result possible.
Types of Brain Damage
There are two types of brain damage:
- Primary brain damage
This damage occurs at the time of impact and includes skull fractures, bruising, blood clots, lacerations, and nerve damage.
- Secondary brain damage
This damage develops after the impact and causes brain swelling, epilepsy, infection, fever, and abnormal blood pressure.
Some brain injuries can result in serious physical disabilities like quadriplegia and paraplegia. These conditions are characterized by complete or partial loss of sensation and control of the limbs. Treating these conditions can be lifelong and expensive.
Dealing with a brain injury and loss of function in the limbs can be frightening and financially devastating.
