Headaches. Inability to concentrate. Inability to taste or smell properly. Drastic behavioural or mood changes. These are just a handful of symptoms of a traumatic brain injury.

The symptoms that one experiences will depend on the severity of the injury (brain injuries can be diagnosed from a range of mild traumatic brain injury to severe traumatic brain injury) as well as which part of the brain received the trauma. For instance, trauma to the temporal lobe of your brain can commonly result in symptoms such as decreased ability to taste or smell whereas trauma to the frontal lobe of your brain can cause radical behavioural or mood changes. Thus, one can suffer a traumatic brain injury even if they did not suffer a loss of consciousness or a loss of memory.

What Could Cause a Brain Injury?

Brain injuries, mild and severe, can result from being in a motor vehicle accident whether you are a driver of a vehicle, a passenger in a vehicle, pedestrian, a cyclist, or a motorcyclist. As the victim of the accident, you bear the burden of proving that the brain injury was caused by the accident. Thus, if you have suffered a brain injury as a result of your accident, it is vitally important to retain a personal injury law firm that is experienced with working with people with head and brain injuries. The personal injury law firm you retain should also have the experience and resources to retain the right medical experts as needed to prove your head and brain injury claim.
