Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Dallas Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Although the brain is well protected by a fairly thick skull, the head can still be struck or impacted enough to cause damage. As the brain is the motor control center for the entire body, when injured it can lead to loss of balance, impaired vision, less mobility or paralysis, some degree of memory loss, concussion, and other serious symptoms. Some of these injuries can result in permanent disability to the individual and can even lead to death.

There can be many causes of this catastrophic injury, such as auto accidents, boating accidents, falls from high places, sporting injuries, impacts with a floor or other hard surface, assaults and even excessive shaking of an infant. There are two types of brain injuries, open and closed. An open injury results when the head is struck and the skull fractured or penetrated. The closed injury is internal, with the brain being moved, shocked or impacted. This can sometimes be the more severe as one can have brain swelling or blood clots, resulting in possible comas, behavioral impairments and even death.

Common Symptoms

Traumatic brain injuries can impact victims in various ways depending on the location and severity of the wound, but some of the symptoms that typically occur include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Disorientation
  • Dizziness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory problems
  • Sensitivity to light or sound
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of coordination
  • Numbness or weakness in the extremities
  • Persistent headaches
  • Seizures
  • Agitation
  • Nausea or vomiting
