BRAIN INJURY FAQS

Answers to Frequently Asked Brain Injury Questions

1. What are traumatic brain injury (TBI) symptoms?
Symptoms of a TBI can vary depending on the severity of the injury and how much of the brain is affected. Mild TBI symptoms can include:

  • confusion and disorientation,
  • nausea,
  • sensitivity to light and sound,
  • temporary loss of consciousness,
  • and more.

Moderate or severe TBI symptoms are more pronounced and include:

  • loss of bladder or bowel control,
  • persistent headache,
  • prolonged loss of consciousness,
  • seizures,
  • and more.

2. Is a concussion a traumatic brain injury?
Yes. A concussion is the most common type of mild TBI. Concussions occur when a high-impact force causes the brain to shake inside the skull.

Concussions cause mild TBI symptoms and usually heal without treatment in a few weeks. However, severe concussions may lead to lasting damage, known as post-concussion syndrome. People who develop post-concussion syndrome experience symptoms—including severe headaches and dizziness—that can last for months or even years after the injury occurred.

3. What’s different about traumatic brain injuries in children?
Children up to 4 years old are at a high risk of suffering a TBI. Infants and young children who have a concussion also may be at risk for developing long-term brain damage. The effects of this damage may include permanent learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and emotional difficulties.

When your child suffers from a TBI, it can be devastating to your entire family. Our Greensboro and Charlotte brain injury lawyers will do everything we can to help you get the resources your child and your family needs to cope with the injury.

4. What’s recommended for traumatic brain injury treatment?
Most TBI symptoms resolve on their own in the days or weeks following the accident. However, it’s important that you see a doctor after a brain injury, as there may be swelling or bleeding in the brain that you might not be aware of.

The CDC recommends following these tips after a concussion:

  • avoid physically demanding activities and exercise,
  • eliminate alcohol intake,
  • get plenty of sleep at night,
  • temporarily reduce your workload and hours at your job,
  • and report any changes in symptoms to your doctor.

5. How can a lawyer help with a traumatic brain injury?
TBIs can cause an emotional and financial strain on your family. If you or your loved one suffered from a TBI due to negligence—or failure to uphold a standard of safety—the brain injury attorneys at Crumley Roberts want to speak with you.

Our North Carolina brain injury legal team has the resources and the experience to investigate and determine who was responsible for the brain injury, and we can hold that party accountable. It’s our goal to help injured victims get the compensation they need to move on with their lives.
