Just because your CAT scan results don’t show that you are suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) doesn’t mean you don’t have one. Unfortunately, the technologies that exist today are not intricate enough to detect every kind of traumatic brain injury–even if you are experiencing symptoms of a TBI. Wrong diagnosis, lack of diagnosis, and delayed diagnosis of a traumatic brain injury are all too common occurrences.
At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida traumatic brain injury attorneys know how to prove that you are suffering from a TBI that was caused by another party’s negligence in Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, or another county in Florida. We would be happy to meet with you for a free consultation to discuss your TBI case.
Symptoms of Acquired Brain Injuries
One of the challenges of proving a traumatic brain injury is that there is sometimes no physical evidence to show that an injury to the brain–especially a mild TBI–has occurred. While some brain injuries are obvious, including TBIs involving fractured skulls, concussions, comas, or brain death, many TBIs–especially mild TBIs and traumatic brain injuries where the symptoms did not appear for days or weeks–can be difficult to identify without the help of the proper medical specialists to evaluate your injuries.
This is why it is essential that you hire an experienced TBI lawyer who understands the complexities of traumatic brain injuries–especially TBIs that were acquired in accidents–and knows how to prove your injury case to a Florida jury.
Some common symptoms of a TBI are headaches, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, lethargy, confusion, sleeping problems, nausea, problems thinking clearly, blurred vision, loss of one or more senses, loss of balance, and vomiting. Each person’s symptoms, the extent of brain damage, and the types of medical and recovery care required will vary depending on whether the TBI is permanent or temporary and mild or severe. Paralysis, seizures, loss of muscle control, emotional issues, personality problems, decreased sex drive, and depression can also result from a TBI.
