How Do I Recognize Whether My Loved One Suffered a Traumatic Brain injury (TBI)?

Noticing a brain injury isn't very easy. The signs of a traumatic brain injury are, quite often, subtle and vary from person to person. To matters more diffucult, the symptoms may not appear right away and can surface weeks or months after an accidnet. The following are common symptoms of a TBI that you should be on the look out for:

  • Difficulty remembering, concentrating, or making decisions;
  • Difficulty in forming thoughts, speaking, acting, or reading;
  • Getting easily confused or forgetting certain locations (e.g. your home, your place of employment, etc.);
  • Changes in mood (e.g., suddenly feeling depressed or angry);
  • Increased sensitivity to lights, sounds, or distractions;
  • Blurred vision; and
  • Ringing in the ears.
