Traumatic Brain Injuries can occur after Slip and Fall Accidents

The National Safety Council (NSC) reports that slip and fall accidents are responsible for 8.9 million emergency department visits each year.  While many slip and fall accidents only result in minor injuries, they have the potential of causing injuries as serious as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) in some instances. When these accidents occur because of someone else’s negligence, victims can potentially recover by filing a personal injury claim against those responsible for their injuries. The lawyers of the Law Offices of Shane Smith can help you make sure that you get the compensation you deserve after a slip and fall case resulting in a TBI or other serious injury. It is extremely important for victims to note that Georgia slip and fall cases are subject to a strict statute of limitations, meaning that there is a limited amount of time in which you may bring a claim.

 

TBI Symptoms

Traumatic brain injuries occur when a bump or jolt to the head causes a disruption in normal brain function. Falls can cause TBIs in a variety of ways, including causing the head to hit the ground or another object as an individual falls. Even mild TBIs are serious injuries, and should be checked out by a medical professional. As a result, it is important for victims to be able to recognize the symptoms of a TBI when one occurs. These include:
 

  • Dizziness

  • Headache

  • Memory problems

  • Nausea

  • Sensitivity to light or sound

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Drowsiness

  • Ringing in the ears

 

Anyone who is experiencing these or other symptoms after a fall should be sure to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
