Brain and closed head injuries can result in a multitude of complications and conditions, including:

  • Subdural hematoma
  • Neurological damage
  • Severe concussions
  • Memory loss
  • Chronic headaches
  • Vision loss
  • Balance problems
  • Behavioral changes
  • Irritability
  • Severe concussions
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Anxiety, Stress and Worry
  • Mental Anguish
  • Loss of Sense of Taste
  • Loss of Sense of Smell

Additionally, it is important to remember that a closed head injury might be challenging to prove. In many situations, a closed head injury won't show damage on an MRI or CAT scan.

Just because an injury is called a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) does not mean that the sufferer will not struggle with vision impairment, memory loss or a host of other symptoms. It is important to have an aggressive, knowledgeable lawyer fighting on your side.
