TBI Symptoms by Severity

When a doctor diagnoses a brain injury, they look at some of the symptoms to determine just how severe the brain injury is. Typically, this means determining if the brain injury is mild, moderate, or severe. Your injury’s severity can also impact your claim if you need to seek compensation following someone else’s negligence.

To help you understand how each level of brain injury can impact your life, we’ll explain some of the symptoms you may experience.

Mild TBI Symptoms

A mild traumatic brain injury may not seem severe on the surface, but there are several impactful damages you may experience. For instance, a mild TBI can be a concussion, which can cause a brief loss of consciousness, nausea, and more.

It can also cause short-term memory loss, vision trouble, and other cognitive issues. A mild TBI is not always as minor as it may seem.

Moderate TBI Symptoms

A moderate traumatic brain injury can cause you to lose consciousness for several minutes or even a few hours. It can also cause significant balance and coordination issues, making it challenging to complete even the simplest day-to-day tasks.

Severe TBI Symptoms

Severe traumatic brain injuries can cause the worst symptoms possible, including the chance of a coma. If you suffer a severe TBI, you may experience seizures and convulsions, memory loss, trouble with vision and hearing, and more.

The most severe TBIs can also require ongoing care, specialized medical equipment, and in-home care, making it necessary to pursue compensation when damages occur.
