Traumatic brain injury symptoms

A person in Ohio who has sustained a traumatic brain injury may endure a range of different symptoms, depending on how severe the injury was. The most severe brain injuries can result in altered states of consciousness including coma, vegetative state and brain death. When someone is in a coma, they may emerge from the coma and recover consciousness or enter a vegetative state that could become permanent.

Even if a person does not have a dramatic change in their state of consciousness after a traumatic brain injury, they could suffer from significant cognitive and behavioral complications. People suffering from symptoms of a TBI may have difficulty remembering, learning, reasoning and concentrating. Executive functioning problems like difficulty organizing, multi-tasking and making decisions are also common after a TBI.

Complications from a TBI can make it difficult for a brain-injured person to communicate and interact with other people. A person with a TBI may lose the ability to understand nonverbal social cues, and they may have emotional changes that include severe mood swings, irritability, depression and anxiety. Brain injuries may also lead to degenerative conditions like Dementia pugilistica, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.

Brain injuries are often the result of car accidents and sports injuries. A person who has suffered from a traumatic brain injury may be able to claim financial compensation for their injury by filing a personal injury claim. An attorney may help an injured accident victim gather evidence to prove that he or she suffered financial loss as a result of the accident. These losses may include hospital bills, rehabilitation expenses and lost income.
