How Long Do Symptoms of Brain Injuries Last?

Commonly caused by accidents that involve a strong impact, a brain injury can have lifelong effects. Initially, you may be in a coma or suffer bleeding in the brain, which needs to be addressed immediately to minimize possible brain damage. However, once any immediate symptoms are addressed and treated as best as possible, you still have a long way to go in terms of your recovery.

Depending on which part or parts of the brain are impacted, you may notice that you suffer from mood swings, have trouble walking or talking, and have memory issues. In some cases, you may notice changes in your personality, or that you take an interest in activities that you didn't enjoy prior to the injury.

If you have suffered from a concussion or any other type of traumatic brain injury in the past, you may be at higher risk for permanent brain damage. Likewise, those who suffer from traumatic brain injury may also be at higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or any other form of dementia in later years.

A brain injury could require years of costly treatment while degrading your quality of life. This is why you should talk to an attorney today about holding the party who caused your injury financially responsible for what happened to you. An attorney may be able to help you win compensation for medical bills and other long-term care costs.
