Douglas D. Shaffer - Personal Injury Lawyer - Manhattan Beach, CA

If you or a loved one recently suffered a head injury in a car crash, there are potential short and long-term side effects you need to be aware of. Besides the physical pain, emotional tolls can be as devastating.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) requires compassion, commitment and knowledge to heal. The CDC says TBIs result in thousands of annual deaths, so it is crucial to act now. You may feel defeated or hopeless in your current situation, but never give up. If you feel any of the symptoms described below, seek immediate medical and legal guidance.

Short term side effects

Brain injuries may induce headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, and vomiting in the short term. You might lose consciousness or have trouble with simple tasks. Traumatic Brain injury symptoms often come with the dual effect of emotional issues such as mood swings, paranoia, depression, frustration or aggressing behavior. It is important to treat your loved ones with kindness when you notice a change in their personality. Harsh words do not help.

Long term side effects

Long-term effects of TBIs include short-term memory loss, problems speaking, confusion and an increased risk of Alzheimer’s. It is essential to seek legal action before these symptoms hold on you or a loved one’s life. After an automobile or other severe accident that causes head trauma, seek financial compensation before your medical bills become too much to bear.

There are people who will fight for you in the wake of a TBI. It is important to remain hopeful and find the right legal and medical team for your recovery.
