Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
When the brain is damaged in almost any way, it can be considered a traumatic brain injury or TBI. The symptoms of a TBI will vary depending on what part of the brain was injured and what caused that injury. In medical contexts, a TBI can be caused by blunt trauma, piercing trauma, blood toxicity, or suffocation.
Typical symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Speech difficulties
- Insomnia or inability to wake up easily
If you were in an accident that could have injured your head or brain and are now experiencing any of these symptoms, then please see a medical professional immediately. You could have an undiagnosed brain injury. The sooner a TBI is diagnosed, the sooner it can be treated. Rapid treatment might help prevent the worst permanent consequences.
Treatments for Traumatic Brain Injuries
Advancements in modern medicine and technology have made it easier to treat more types of brain injuries than ever before. No matter how many symptoms you or your loved one are experiencing now, it might be possible to reduce them through careful medical treatments. It is always worth exploring your medical options with the guidance of a trusted physician.
Treatment options for brain injuries could include:
- Extensive hospitalization
- Brain surgery
- Neurological therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Specialized education
- Prescription medicine
Expenses & Losses Caused by a TBI
Living with a traumatic brain injury is taxing physically and mentally. It will also be taxing to your finances, though, which might cause more immediate problems than the injury itself. Just taking care of yourself and using necessary medical care can be exhaustively expensive. Your healthcare insurance coverage might cap before you are even cleared to leave the hospital.
To keep your finances out of a dire situation, your only option might be to take legal action against the party that caused your brain injury. This is where the Houston brain injury attorneys of Robins Cloud LLP can step in. We know how to bring strong cases against any opposition, like insurance companies, corporations, medical institutions, and more.
The financial compensation owed to you through a TBI claim or lawsuit might include:
- Medical costs: The full amount of medical costs you have paid or still owe should be provided by the liable party. This amount can factor in future medical care, too, like months or years of specialized rehabilitative therapy.
- Lost income: We can fight for the income that you couldn’t earn because you were hospitalized or incapacitated. We can also seek compensation to pay for the income you will never earn due to permanent limitations caused by the brain injury.
- Pain and suffering: In a TBI claim, you can seek damages related to your pain, suffering, and emotional trauma. This amount of compensation could be significant depending on how severely your life has changed and become complicated as a result of injury and the accident or incident that caused it.

Traumatic Brain Injury FAQ
How is the severity of a brain injury measured?
The Glasgow Coma Scale is used to determine the severity of a brain injury. It gauges a patient’s consciousness, awareness, and certain basic skills. If you received a Glasgow Coma Scale rating after suffering a head injury, then that rating could be useful while building your TBI claim.
Are mild traumatic brain injuries serious?
Yes, all brain injuries should be taken seriously and can dramatically affect the patient’s well-being, including “mild” TBIs. A concussion is often considered a mild traumatic brain injury, yet it requires immediate medical attention and can create lifelong symptoms all the same.
Is it possible to recover from a brain injury?
In some cases, a patient can fully recover from a brain injury. It depends on what part of the brain was affected and how. However, some patients will be permanently afflicted by brain injury symptoms and can only mitigate the severity of them, not cure them.
What is the average recovery time for a TBI?
If a patient can recover completely from a traumatic brain injury, it can take anywhere between three weeks and three years, based on the type of TBI. The patient’s age can affect the recovery time. Older TBI patients usually require a considerably longer time to recover than younger patients.
Can a TBI get worse over time?
A traumatic brain injury can get worse before it starts to get better. The risk of a worsening TBI increases if the injury has not been diagnosed and/or treated, which is why it is so important to see a medical professional as soon as possible after suffering a head injury.
Will I still be able to work with a TBI?
Many people who suffer a traumatic brain injury will continue to hold gainful employment to some extent. Although, if TBI symptoms are debilitating, then it might be possible to hold minimal employment while getting long-term disability benefits.
