Consequences & Symptoms of a TBI
Depending on the type of brain injury you have suffered and the extent of the injury, you may suffer a wide range of consequences. Traumatic brain injuries have the potential to cause a variety of different physical, emotional, and personality changes. It is important that you not only seek immediate and continuing medical care, noting new symptoms and ensuring that they are noted on your medical record, but also seek legal representation to pursue compensation for the long-term effects.
A few common symptoms and consequences of a TBI include:
- Loss of speech
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of vision
- Problems with balance
Can You Fully Recover from a Traumatic Brain Injury?
The ability to recover from a brain injury depends largely on the severity of your injury. The prognosis for recovering from a mild traumatic brain injury, either in part or completely, is usually better than that of a more serious injury. Those who suffer a mild head injury usually find they recover within about three months, while recovering from a more serious injury can take longer. A more serious head injury also raises the chances you will need some other form of medical intervention as part of your recovery process such as physical therapy or speech therapy.
