What are some signs of brain trauma?

Maryland residents who get into car accidents are often left dealing with injuries that might not be immediately noticeable. At the law offices of Scott N. Bergman, LLC, we work to help you identify the signs of these injuries, even if they occur days after the initial traumatic event.

Contrary to popular belief, some symptoms of brain-related injury or trauma don't appear for hours or even days after an accident. Severe trauma will usually manifest immediately, and can be seen in signs like unconsciousness, bleeding, or clear fluids draining from the nose. Sufferers may also be comatose during this period.

On the other hand, not all severe trauma will show itself right away. You should also keep an eye out for things like personality changes, difficulty remembering things, and trouble with concentration. Depression or agitation are often common side-effects of a severe brain injury, and may surface in the days following an accident.

It's possible for your motor skills to degrade over time as well, even if they seemed perfectly functional at the time of the crash itself. These physical symptoms can include dizziness, a loss of balance, and the inability to grip things properly or move extremities with ease. Numbness may also occur in some cases.

If you need more information on the subject of traumatic brain injuries, take a look around our website. We can help you determine whether or not the symptoms you see may be something to keep an eye on, or if they require immediate action.
