Video: What Are the Symptoms of a TBI?

As a leading attorney in the field of brain injury cases, Tom Crosley possesses an intimate understanding of the signs and symptoms associated with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). In this video, he explains what those symptoms tend to look like.

As Crosley explains, there are three types of brain injuries in the context of a legal claim: mild, moderate, and severe brain injuries.

Mild brain injuries (which include concussions) make up most of the brain injuries that result in legal claims. These brain injuries often prove difficult to diagnose, and victims may not seek treatment for some time because they don’t realize they have a brain injury. Even an MRI scan of the victim’s brain might not display any abnormal results.

It’s important to note that physicians call some brain injuries “mild” only to distinguish them from even more traumatic brain injuries. In reality, the symptoms of “mild” brain injuries can have devastating, life-altering effects on victims.

Common symptoms of a mild brain injury include:

  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Visual disturbances
  • Memory loss
  • Poor attention/concentration
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Dizziness/loss of balance
  • Irritability-emotional disturbances
  • Feelings of depression
  • Seizures

Moderate and severe brain injuries, meanwhile, tend to present obvious and indisputable symptoms. These injuries can leave the victim in a coma and with significant brain bleeding that doctors can detect with an MRI.
