Baltimore, MD Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
Ken C. GauveyPersonal Injury Attorney
Traumatic brain injury (or TBI) is an injury to the brain that occurs when the head or body suffers a non-invasive impact. In other words, it isn’t necessary to break or penetrate the skull to injure the brain inside it. A motor vehicle accident, football tackle, fall, or a physical altercation may be enough to significantly damage the brain. Millions of people in the United States suffer a TBI every year.
Signs and Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A concussion is the mildest kind of TBI. Its symptoms may include:
- Vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- Slurred speech
- Dilated eye pupils
- Weakness or numbness in the arms and legs
These symptoms may not appear until several days after an accident. If you or someone you love is experiencing symptoms of these kinds following an accident seek medical attention right away.

People who suffer a serious TBI may develop motor deficits, meaning movement becomes more difficult, or they may develop a wide range of emotional and cognitive issues. People with TBI may have increased difficulty thinking, speaking, or controlling their emotions. Some people with TBI develop post-traumatic stress disorder or other psychological conditions. Management of TBI may require ongoing medication, therapy, and monitoring. This treatment may be expensive and may not all be covered by health insurance.
