Even mild brain injuries can have a big impact on your finances as you rack up expensive medical bills—especially if returning to work full time isn’t always possible. Symptoms after suffering a mild traumatic brain injury in an accident can include:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Changes to thought processes, such as delays in thinking or difficulty comprehending concepts
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Dizziness and nausea 
  • Emotional issues like irritability, mood swings, and sudden angry outbursts
  • Fatigue and difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Memory loss
  • PTSD
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sensory issues like loss of smell or sensitivity to light and sound
  • Vision problems

Even these supposedly “mild” symptoms may prevent you from completing your normal work duties, stop you from driving, or otherwise interfere with your daily routine and cause a financial loss. You have a legal right to recover damages for those losses if your injury was caused by negligence, whether in a car accident, a slip and fall, or other incidents.
