Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury


When it comes to safety, protecting our heads is a top priority. Because our brain is so important to every facet of our lives, it’s imperative to understand the symptoms of traumatic brain injury if you’ve been in an accident. As experienced brain injury lawyers we hope to educate those who live in Hamilton, and the surrounding areas of Ontario, on what to look for if they’ve hurt their head in an accident.

Traumatic brain injuries happen when your brain hits the inside of your skull, usually after your head snaps forward or back quickly during an accident, or after your head impacts a hard surface from falling. Symptoms of this catastrophic injury can be apparent immediately, or may not manifest for a few days or weeks. During the period after a head injury, symptoms may not seem serious, when in fact they may be signs of a traumatic brain injury. It’s recommended you seek medical attention immediately if you’ve suffered a head injury and are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Concentration problems
  • Memory loss
  • Headache
  • Feelings of disorientation or confusion
  • Dizziness or loss of balance
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Mood swings, anxiety, or depression
  • Fatigue or drowsiness
  • Blurred vision, light sensitivity, unexplained smells
  • Ringing in your ear

Certain situations—like motor vehicle accidents and slip and fall accidents—are more likely to cause traumatic brain injuries, but these injuries can happen from minor injuries to the head as well. And if they are the result of another’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
