Fighting For You Where accident victims turn to after injury We have collected millions for our clients

There is no such thing as a minor brain injury

Doctors classify traumatic brain injuries, that is brain injuries that happen because of a specific accident or intentional act, depending on what they see as the injury's level of severity.

However, it is important for Houston, Texas, residents to realize that, in fact, the symptoms of even a minor traumatic brain injury are actually anything but minor; they can, indeed, affect a person's ability to function in the long term.

For example, minor, or mild traumatic brain injuries can leave a person struggling to speak and maintain a normal rhythm of sleep. Victims can also experience problems with their senses, including blurred vision or a ringing sensation. It is possible that they may develop an intolerance for certain types of sounds or lighting.

Moreover, those with a mild injury may have a hard time remembering things or focusing their mental energy. They may also struggle with other emotional issues, like depression or anxiety.

Clearly, these sorts of symptoms are not akin to a bruise or cut or, one might argue, even a broken bone that someone can simply have put in to a cast. These types of injuries no doubt require medical attention and could lead to a person's having to miss work, at least for some amount of time.

Any brain and spine injuries should be taken seriously both by the medical and legal professions, even if someone can walk away from one realizing that the end result could have been a lot worse. If a Houston resident has suffered even a mild traumatic brain injury at the hands of someone else, they may be able to pursue compensation for their damages.
