Examples of Symptoms of TBI

Trauma to the head caused by a motor vehicle accident, fall, sports injury, act of violence, or other incident can cause a victim to suffer a traumatic brain injury.  Brain injuries can range from mild to severe, and you can suffer from a traumatic brain injury even you received only what you perceived as a mild bump to the head.  Brain injuries can cause a wide range of possible symptoms that may affect the way you think, feel, or move.  Some victims have multiple symptoms and some only experience one.  Some victims may not even recognize that they are experiencing brain injury symptoms.  However, if you have been hit in the head at all and notice any change in your abilities, you should seek medical attention immediately.  If you are diagnosed with a brain injury, you should contact a Coweta County brain injury attorney as soon as possible to see if you have a case.
