What to Expect After a Closed Head Brain Injury
These types of injuries can occur even if you don’t have an obvious bruise, bump, or bleeding. Symptoms of a closed head TBI also may not immediately appear, with debilitating repercussions showing up weeks later. Closed head injury symptoms can include constant headaches, fatigue, and nausea as well as mood swings, memory loss, impaired vision, difficulty communicating, and even seizures. To deal with these problems, treatment may include:
- Medically-induced coma
- Surgery to remove pressure on the brain
- Therapy for speech, physical movement, and occupational skills
With so many areas of your life affected by these symptoms, there is a strong possibility of your recovery process becoming extremely expensive, especially if your symptoms persist over the long term. That’s why you need to speak with a skilled attorney who has experience in traumatic brain injury cases to negotiate with insurance carriers or bring a lawsuit against the negligent party who caused the accident.
