Brain injuries can be very serious. Even a mild brain injury can leave you cognitively impaired, making it difficult to perform daily tasks, think as clearly as you once used to, and more.
Although traumatic, these injuries often times go undiagnosed because the signs and symptoms can be so subtle. In many accidents, brain injuries are only apparent to the person suffering from the injury, and his or her friends or family. For this reason, it is important to know and understand the symptoms of a brain injury so that you can recognize the signs after a serious accident.
Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms that you may have a brain injury in Virginia:
- Concentration and attention difficulties
- Irritability or mood changes
- Sleep disturbances or insomnia
- Blurred vision
- Orientation problems
If you were in an accident and think you may have a brain injury, it is critical that you speak to your doctor. Describe all symptoms that you have experienced. Next, contact a Richmond brain injury lawyer to help you explain the injury to a jury and insurance company. This will maximize your opportunity to get the compensation you need to heal.
