Common Causes of Concussions and Other Traumatic Brain Injuries

Common Symptoms of Concussions or Other Traumatic Brain Injuries
Many concussions or other traumatic brain injuries are seen as subjective, which can make it harder to pin down the exact cause of a symptom. It’s not like a broken bone where it would show up easily on an MRI. This can cause insurance companies to argue that there are not enough objective symptoms to pay for treatment. Our brain injury attorneys are experienced in dealing with insurance companies. There is no comprehensive list for possible symptoms from brain injuries, but the following are the most common:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Speech difficulties
- Sensitivity to light and noise
- Behavioral changes
- Sensory issues
- Memory loss
