How to recognise TBI – and injury lawyers in Owermoigne
TBI stands for Traumatic Brain Injury and is a dangerous form of head injury that can cause further complications down the line. It is important to recognise TBI so that you can get yourself or the patient to a doctor as soon as possible so any treatment can begin.
If you have sustained any kind of head injury then you are at risk of TBI, so should be extra vigilant for the signs. If your accident was not your fault and you have sustained TBI then you may be able to claim compensation against the negligent party.

What causes TBI?
Any type of head injury puts you at risk of TBI, but the most common ways to sustain it are:
- Road accident
- Being hit by a car
- A fight or attack
- A fall
- Something falling onto you
TBI symptoms may take up to a few weeks to appear, so be watchful of yourself or someone else who has suffered a head injury for up to a month after the event to see if they start displaying symptoms
What are the symptoms?
- Memory loss
- Neck pain
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- Vision problems
- Lack of concentration
- Sensitivity to light or sound
What to do if you notice these symptoms
Go to a doctor as soon as you can. If you think that the symptoms are coming on quite soon after the event then it may be worthwhile calling the emergency services. Any head injury is dangerous for the patient, as it can lead to further complications or even death.
Make sure that you are always watching out for these symptoms after a head injury, and if you were the person who had the injury you should make sure that someone stays with you for a day or so to see if the symptoms come on.
Never feel embarrassed or as though you are being over-dramatic if these symptoms come on a while after your injury, as in many cases the symptoms of TBI take some time to appear.
