    To help you get a better understanding of what you are up against, let’s discuss traumatic brain injuries in some detail.

    What are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

    Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are serious injuries that require focused and thorough medical attention. If such an injury occurs at the workplace or is work-related in any form, you will also need legal attention to protect your rights.

    Brain Injury Statistics

    According to estimates, about 1.5 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each year. These traumatic brain injuries can range from mild to severe.

    What are ‘subjective symptoms’?

    Many people, including attorneys, and believe it or not, some doctors, don’t fully understand traumatic brain injuries. Because a myriad of conditions can lie under the surface, many of the symptoms are considered “subjective”. This leads to insurance company doctors and sometimes neurologists claiming the traumatic brain injury victim has “recovered”.

    This can present a dangerous situation where victims aren’t getting the ongoing care they need. Yes, TBI can largely result in “subjective” symptoms but they need to be addressed. Neuropsychological testing is critical to documenting the constellation of symptoms and this testing gives the objectivity needed in a court setting. This testing can last up to two days, and while it may not necessarily speak to causation (i.e., what caused the limitations), it will often verify in an objective way the limitations experienced by the traumatic brain injury victim.

    Common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury

    Some common symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury include headaches, confusion, balance issues, trouble focusing, nausea or vomiting, memory problems, hypersensitivity to lights and noise, etc.

    Brain Injury Symptoms

    Having represented many traumatic brain injury victims, the one that stands out the most for us is headaches. Our brain is who we are and how we function. Suffering from headaches on a constant basis can absolutely stop someone in their tracks. And, of course, a headache cannot be seen. It won’t show up on a scan.

    This can be overwhelmingly frustrating for someone suffering from chronic symptoms as other people may become cynical or doubt the existence or severity of the headaches. Co-workers, family, or friends may look at a TBI victim and think they look fine.

    “They got dressed and looked nice and they can speak and respond, so what’s the problem?”

    The truth is that the victim of the traumatic brain injury frequently has many horrendous symptoms that cause frustration and depression. Trouble thinking clearly, headaches, confusion, less stamina, and other problems that won’t be obvious to others right away, are usually the most prevalent hindrances in the victim’s life.

    Recovery from a brain injury is a long process

    Recovery from brain injury can span days to years. There isn’t much that can be done from a medical standpoint to reverse the initial brain damage, but getting treatment quickly can help stabilize the brain injury victim and prevent further damage.
