Brain Injury Symptoms

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:

  1. Primary brain damage
    This damage occurs at the time of impact and includes skull fractures, bruising, blood clots, lacerations, and nerve damage.
  2. 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.

The location of a brain injury also determines its impact on the sufferer. Please visit our brain injury FAQ page to see answers to commonly asked questions.
