Causes of Catastrophic Brain Injuries
The brain is one of the most sensitive organs in the body. In an accident that might seem mild, like a low-speed rear-end collision, it is possible to permanently injure the brain. As such, it is possible for a brain injury to occur in most any accident or incident.
Although, there are more common causes of TBIs, such as:

You deserve to feel safe and on solid ground after being catastrophically injured. Through diligent and experienced legal representation, we hope to help make that possible for you.
Symptoms of a TBI You Might Not Notice
Sometimes a traumatic brain injury is not immediately noticeable. Instead, symptoms of a brain injury can manifest subtly and gradually over time. It is important for you to receive a medical checkup from your trusted healthcare provider as soon as possible after being in a violent accident or incident that might have injured your head. Rapid diagnosis of a brain injury can help prevent the injury from worsening and may lessen the consequences of a TBI.
You might have suffered a brain injury to some degree of severity if you are experiencing:
- Chronic headaches or migraines
- Memory loss
- Speech impediment
- Nausea, vomiting, or dizziness
- Uncharacteristic mood swings
- Insomnia or oversleeping
- Light or sound sensitivity
If you are exhibiting any of the aforementioned symptoms after being in an accident, please contact your doctor as soon as possible. You should also consider being taken to urgent care for a medical evaluation. Do not do anything that jeopardizes your health.
