West Palm Beach Injury Lawyer
Serving Florida from our Boca Raton Office
An accident, whether it is in a car, from a fall or even an injury at work, can carry numerous consequences. While sometimes the injuries are minor, there are other times the injuries can be severe – and even life-threatening. One of those serious injuries includes traumatic brain injury (TBI). Traumatic brain injuries are complex forms of injuries that can cause a variety of symptoms and disabilities. Unfortunately, the symptoms can often be confused with other conditions, which can mean that sufferers may not be diagnosed until it is too late.
What is Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injury can be abrupt and for some people, and they can show symptoms right away. This type of injury occurs when there is excessive force placed on the brain, which can be a violent blow to the head or a whipping motion of the body. A mild case of TBI can still temporarily cause the brain to malfunction, while more severe cases can cause permanent damage to the brain and a person’s cognitive abilities.
Most individuals who suffer from TBI have long-lasting complications and increased chance of death because of those complications. TBI is not always diagnosed right away. This is because it has a wide array of symptoms, both physical and psychological, so patients are often misdiagnosed. Some of the common symptoms of TBI can include, but are not limited to:
- Frequent or unexplained headaches and migraines
- Dizziness or vertigo
- Memory loss (permanent or temporary)
- Nausea and vomiting
- Problems sleeping
- Sensitivity to light
- Coordination issues
- Sudden or unexplained mood changes – including depression, anxiety or aggression

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury
Any violent blow to the head or body could result in TBI. Even athletes are prone to TBI, such as the latest NFL lawsuit. But you do not have to be a race car driver or football player to suffer from a traumatic brain injury. Other causes of this deadly injury include:
- Car accidents
- Semi-truck accidents
- Construction accidents
- Objects falling onto a person
- Slip and fall injuries
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian or Bike accidents
