An injury to the brain is one of the most serious bodily injuries. Missouri residents struggling with brain injury symptoms know that the extent of brain damage is sometimes hard to determine. Many healthcare professionals believe that people who sustain a brain injury as a result of an accident may have a hard time knowing if that injury is permanent. Fortunately, our firm is well-acquainted with the symptoms and effects of brain injuries and can provide plethora of information to an injured party.
A motorist involved in an accident may experience severe headaches after the accident and disregard this symptom, believing that a headache is not serious. However, head pain is one of the physical signs of traumatic brain injury. Ignoring any symptom may lead to extensive complications. Other physical symptoms include blurred vision, reduced or lost mobility, loss of taste and slurred speech. Our firm can advocate for a victim to undergo a battery of medical tests to identify if those symptoms are a sign of brain injury. A victim with a definitive diagnosis has a greater chance of full recovery and prevention of further complications.
