Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

brain injury attorney Long Island A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a life altering health matter. If it isn’t properly diagnosed and treated because of medical malpractice, patients risk additional complications. It’s important for patients and their families to be able to advocate for their own well-being by learning to recognize the symptoms of a possible TBI. Immediately after the injury is sustained, patients may experience loss of consciousness, dizziness, confusion, disorientation, nausea, and vomiting. Headaches, drowsiness, sensitivity to light and sound, and blurry vision are also possible.

As time passes, patients may notice additional symptoms and complications, particularly if the brain injury was severe. These can include physical symptoms such as seizures, persistent headache, and loss of coordination. They might also include cognitive symptoms such as severe confusion, abnormal behavior, and communication impairment.
