In this article we are gonna reveal to you the important differences about brain injury cases that everyone has to know if they suspect a brain injury.
So, stay tuned.
Brain injuries are not like your typical injury case. In some injury cases, you're dealing with a broken bone. But a broken bone is very obvious on X-Ray and even when it heals you can see it's there.
In fact, diagnosing a broken bone is hard to miss. Brain injury is almost the complete opposite of a broken bone. A brain injury can be very obvious like a subdural hematoma which is bleeding in the brain that doctors can see on a CT-scan.
But thousands of injuries occur every year and they are diagnosed late or the brain injury is never diagnosed at all. See, the brain is actually a very delicate organ and violent movement of the head can cause the brain to move back and forth inside the skull and to strike the inside of the skull.
This is called a concussion.
Even if you don't have a cracked skull or bleeding in the brain, you can have a concussion. These sorts of traumatic brain injuries can kill you. They can change your behavior, change your, personality and have a huge effect on your family.
Brain injuries can be temporary or permanent. But they can destroy your life. Traumatic brain injuries can cause depression and anxiety and all sorts of social and emotional disorders. There's no simple test that doctors can do similar to an X-ray for a broken bone for a more subtle brain injury. Because it's just not that easy to diagnose.
Unfortunately, doctors sometimes don't make the diagnosis. Oftentimes it's up to the injured person and his family to come forward and note the strange behavior or the atypical behavior.
Some of the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury are fatigue, depression, anxiety, confusion, change in personality, change in mood, change in food or hobby preference and change in behavior.
If you suspect a loved one has a brain injury you should go to a doctor immediately.
There may be treatment that will help the injury. Documenting the injury and the problems that person is having is the only way that will ever be able to make a claim for it in a claim or lawsuit.
Proving the brain injury claim requires the help of a lawyer who will take the time to get to know you and your family and really pull apart the medical records.
