Signs & Symptoms of Brain Injury

Some injuries are obvious to everyone who comes in contact with the injured person, especially when there are overt physical symptoms. That can make it relatively easy to diagnose and treat the problem, even if it is serious. Other injuries are more subtle but not less powerful in their impact on the injured person’s life. Not knowing the signs can lead to frustration and a lack of necessary treatment.

Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) often go undetected or diagnosis is delayed, which can lead to serious repercussions for the injury victim. That's why we decided to share common signs and symptoms of brain injury.

At Carpenter & Zuckerman, we help brain injury victims seek maximum compensation after they are hurt due to someone else's negligence. We serve clients throughout California and in other states.

Some Symptoms Are Harder to Identify

A brain injury can take many forms, sometimes revealing itself in ways that many people are unaware of:

  • Changes in cognitive functioning, such as slurred speech, memory loss, concentration problems, and other difficulties
  • Double vision, dizziness, or fogginess
  • Emotional and mood changes that may present themselves as depression, anxiety, or PTSD symptoms
  • Delayed symptoms such as sleeping disorders that don’t show up during initial medical examinations following an accident
  • Delayed symptoms that can deter people from bringing a claim even when the injury was severe

We believe any loss of cognitive or physiological functioning — or significant changes in moods or personality, which can be just as damaging — should be analyzed by an expert. At our law firm, CZ Law, we can help you find the right doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of brain injuries.
