Q: What are the signs of a traumatic brain injury?

A: It is not uncommon for the victim of a West Palm Beach car accident to suffer a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The symptoms of TBIs can range from mild to severe. Some symptoms are immediately evident, while others may not surface until days or even weeks after the injury. A person with a mild TBI may experience the following symptoms:

    • Dizziness
    • Headache
    • Confusion
    • Blurred vision
    • Ringing in the ears
    • Bad taste in the mouth
    • Fatigue or lethargy
    • Change in sleep patterns
    • Behavioral or mood changes
    • Trouble with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking

A person with a moderate to severe TBI may show these same symptoms, but may also have additional symptoms, such as:

    • Headache that gets worse or does not go away
    • Agitation
    • Restlessness
    • Increased confusion
    • Weakness or numbness in the extremities
    • Loss of coordination
    • Dilation of one or both pupils
    • Inability to awaken from sleep
    • Repeated vomiting or nausea
    • Slurred speech
    • Convulsions or seizures

Babies or small children who have suffered a TBI may show some of these symptoms, but may also show signs specific to younger children, such as:

  • Refusal to nurse or eat
  • Persistent crying
  • Inability to be consoled

Anyone who is experiencing these symptoms and suspects that they may have suffered a TBI should seek prompt medical attention. If you or someone you love has been severely injured in a West Palm Beach car crash and has suffered a TBI as a result, contact Fetterman & Associates for a free consultation.
