Detecting Subtle Signs of a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
Although it is relatively easy to detect major signs of a “mild” traumatic brain injury (TBI), the subtle signs are often overlooked leading to major health conditions. In most cases, experienced Los Angeles brain injury lawyers may be the first person to detect a “mild” TBI after conducting an in-depth client consultation.
The Term “Mild” Is Deceiving
The term “mild” is very deceiving when describing a traumatic brain injury because any injury to the brain can have major consequences to both the victim and his or her family. In fact, according to most medical professionals and personal injury lawyers, the term “mild” is a misnomer. As such, it is very important that both your treating physicians and your Los Angeles brain injury lawyer pay close attention to any subtle signs or symptoms of a “mild” TBI.
Symptoms and Signs of “Mild” Traumatic Brain Injuries
Below are some subtle signs and symptoms of a “mild” traumatic brain injury that your doctors and lawyer should look for if you have received any type of injury to the head:
- Difficulty focusing or concentrating on even the most simple things
- Sensitivity to loud noise or light
- Short-term memory loss
- Inability to multi-task
- Irritability or abnormal emotional reactions
In addition to looking for these subtle signs and symptoms, your Los Angeles brain injury lawyer should also interview witnesses and first responders to determine if they witnessed any immediate complaints or unusual behaviors that you may have presented at the scene of the accident.
