Effects and Symptoms of TBI
A moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI)/traumatic head injury has many distinct symptoms. These can include:
- Loss of consciousness and inability to awaken from sleep
- Repeated vomiting and severe nausea
- Seizures and convulsions
- Irritability or agitation
Unlike a mild TBI or concussion, the symptoms of a moderate to severe traumatic brain injury are readily apparent. Once a medical professional provides the diagnosis, the patient can receive the care he or she deserves. In some instances, the patient requires specialized, long-term care.
At Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP, we understand the importance of prompt access to specialized medical care for those who have suffered a brain injury. We are able to access that care quickly for our clients through private referrals to an extensive network of specialists where medically necessary. Call our lawyers to find out more about this very important service that we offer to our clients.
Victims of traumatic brain injury deserve full and fair compensation. Compensation for traumatic brain injury can include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, out-of-pocket expenses (including medical expenses), the cost of future care, past and future wage loss, and loss of earning capacity.
