Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can cause long term complications and can range in severity from mild concussions to much more serious injuries that require surgery. People can sustain TBIs in a variety of commonplace everyday activities, such as driving or even walking up or down stairs. If a TBI occurs due to someone else’s actions or negligence, you may be able to recover through a personal injury lawsuit. Conditions that could potentially result in a TBI include slippery floors, uneven flooring, uneven stairs, poor lighting, or foreign object on the floor or ground. If you suspect that your TBI was the result of someone’s negligence, you should contact an experienced Newnan personal injury attorney as soon as possible for a free case evaluation. The attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are dedicated to helping injured people recover for their injuries, and are available to consult with you at no charge.
Because untreated TBIs can cause serious long term complications, it is important to understand the signs and symptoms of a TBI and to know when to seek medical attention. TBIs occur when a blow or jolt to the head causes a disruption of normal brain function. It is important for anyone who has suffered a TBI to be evaluated by a medical professional to determine the severity of the injury. Common signs and symptoms of a TBI include:
How a traumatic brain injury is treated depends largely on the severity of the injury. After evaluating you, your physician will give you detailed instructions on how to care for yourself after a TBI.
