Brain damage can manifest in many ways. Sometimes people can heal and recover every day or near-normal lifestyles. At other times, the effects linger and cause partial or total disability.
Some accidents produce obvious head trauma that sends accident victims to the hospital. In other cases, people do not immediately realize that they have suffered a concussion. Brain injuries sometimes take hours, days, or weeks to reveal their presence.
Brain injuries can cause:
- Persistent headaches
- Nausea and vomiting
- Mood disorders
- Behavioral problems
- Speech problems
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Blurred vision
- Insomnia or sleeping too much
- Weakness or numbness in extremities
The most severe brain injuries can rob a person permanently of cognitive and physical abilities. Even milder cases, such as those with chronic headaches or mood changes, sabotage people’s careers and relationships. Regardless of where your injury falls on the scale of severity, the personal cost can be heavy on top of medical expenses.
