Traumatic Brain Injury Law and Lawyers

May 14th, 2010

Minor traumatic brain injury is one of the most undiagnosed or misdiagnosed conditions when a person is involved in an accident.  Usually car accidents involving whiplash, a violent jerking of the neck or impact of the head.  The presence of this condition also known as diffuse cerebral dysfunction is a problem when it goes undiagnosed and can have long lasting, permanent effects in some cases. 

The symptoms of minor traumatic brain injury (diffuse cerebral dysfunction) that the injured person typically has are as follows:

1) difficulty concentrating; 2) mood swings; 3) headaches; 4) blurred vision; 5) difficulty remembering (short term memory loss).  This list is not exclusive and other similar symptoms may present.

The are 1) reversible and 2) irreversible.  If you have been in an accident and you are experiencing any of the above symptoms it is vital that you see a neurologist as soon as possible.  If the problems persist it is important that you press your neurologist and request the neurologist refer you to see a neuropsychologist.  A neuropsychologist is a subset of neurology and this practitioner is critical in determining whether your diffuse cerebral dysfunction and cognitive deficits are traumatically induced (caused by your accident) or not.

You, the injured person, is the only one who truly knows your body and mind and it is important to be aware of the warning signs of this undiagnosed condition of minor traumatic brain injury.  If gone untreated this traumatic injury could have long lasting or permanent effects.  It is important to note that the impact sustained in the accident does not necessarily need to be a major one.  Seemingly minor jerking motions can, and often do, result in minor traumatic brain injury.  A lawyer experienced in these types of cases is a good ally to have.

If you or anyone you know was involved in an accident and believe minor traumatic brain injury is the cause of suffering please call the traumatic brain injury lawyers right away.
