It is hard to imagine a scenario where a traumatic brain injury would not be serious and deserving of prompt medical attention. While most traumatic brain injuries require prompt medical treatment and many brain injury victims may require the assistance of an experienced Georgia brain injury lawyer, that may be where the similarities end.

What Determines the Severity of a Brain Injury?
The severity of a brain injury depends on several factors including the part of the brain that was injured and the force with which the brain was hurt. In some cases other factors such as previous brain injuries, age, or other conditions may also help determine the severity of the injury.
What Kinds of Symptoms can a Brain Injury Cause?
The types of symptoms that can be caused by a brain injury are almost too numerous to mention. The exact symptoms depend on the part of the brain that was injured and may affect everything including, but not limited to:

  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Speech
  • Cognition (such as understanding)
  • Gross motor skills (such as walking)
  • Fine motor skills (such as writing)
  • Memory
  • Impulse control
