A traumatic brain injury (TBI) results when an object strikes the head suddenly and intensely or an object enters the brain tissue after piercing the skull. Construction accidents, car crashes, truck wrecks, birth injuries and slip-and-fall accidents are examples of the type of accidents that can result in TBIs. The severity of symptoms ranges from mild to severe.
Possible Signs Of A Brain Injury
Moderate or severe TBI is evidenced by these possible symptoms: a headache that gets worse and does not go away, persistent nausea or vomiting, convulsions, seizures, dilated pupils, increased confusion, agitation, loss of coordination, speech that is slurred, extremity weakness, numbness and inability to wake from sleep. Symptoms of milder cases include lightheadedness, dizziness, blurry vision, ringing in the ears, bad taste in the mouth, disrupted sleep routines and mood swings. If you or a loved one shows any of these signs, you should urgently seek medical care. Following that, contact me, personal injury attorney Marc Sedwick.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke reports that about half the patients who have severe TBIs will require surgery. These injuries can cause radical changes in ability and personality for the injured. In many cases, lifelong disabilities will prevent the injured from being able to live independently.

Cases such as these often require aggressive negotiation and trial skills in order to obtain results. I am experienced at accomplishing successful results on behalf of my clients.
