How Do I Know If I Have A Brain Injury?

Brain injuries are more complex than head injuries. Many times, what appears to be a bad head or neck injury is actually an undiagnosed traumatic brain injury (TBI). The sudden start or stop - such as that suffered in a motor vehicle accident - can severely damage your brain without you knowing the severity of your injuries. Symptoms of TBI may not appear for days or weeks following the personal injury accident.

Signs of a brain injury may include:

  • Blurred vision/tired eyes
  • Changes in sleeping patterns
  • Chronic tiredness/lack of motivation
  • Confusion
  • Difficulty performing a series of steps in a task
  • Forgetfulness
  • Increased sensitivity to light and sound
  • Light-headedness, dizziness or loss of balance
  • Loss of simple movement of body parts
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Memory, concentration and decision-making difficulties
  • Mood swings
  • Nausea
  • Persistent headaches or neck pain
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Slowness in thinking, speaking, acting or reading
  • Trouble focusing on a task
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Trouble with hand-eye coordination
