Brain Injury Symptoms Must Be Addressed Early in Your Personal Injury Case

Whether in a car accident or in an incident on another person's property, suffering a severe injury is usually a traumatic experience. However, not all injuries are as obvious and apparent as some might think. Brain injuries can be particularly difficult to identify, and victims in Connecticut may even mistakenly believe those symptoms are caused by something other than a brain injury. For those who have recently been involved in a serious accident or suffered a personal injury, here are some brain injury warning signs to watch out for.

Excessive drowsiness is a symptom of a serious brain injury, but it is one that is easy to miss. Victims may think they are just exhausted because of the stress of being in some type of accident, but experiencing unusual levels of exhaustion should never be ignored. Any accompanying confusion or loss of consciousness are also signs of a brain injury, and are not signs of simply being stressed out.

Other common symptoms include severe headaches, numbing sensations, weakness in the legs or arms, nausea, vomiting and slurred speech. Victims who have suffered a brain injury may experience all or just one or two of these symptoms. This is why it is important to seek medical attention even if a person is only feeling tired or nauseous after an accident.

Brain injuries can have lifelong or even fatal consequences. Even those who seek medical attention right away can still end up dealing with significant medical bills, ongoing treatments and pain and suffering. For Connecticut victims, pursuing a personal injury claim against negligent parties may be the most effective way to recover necessary compensation.
