Brain injuries often go undetected following car accidents and other types of trauma. Family members are usually the first to notice that something is wrong. Memory lapses, inability to follow instructions, coordination problems, irritability and personality changes can all be symptoms of a traumatic brain injury.
A brain injury can be devastating to a family, both emotionally and financially. It’s important to have your loved one’s injury diagnosed by a medical professional. This is necessary both to help your loved one receive the proper treatment and to provide a medical opinion concerning the injury.
CAT scans and psychological testing can help prove that an injury has occurred. Testimony from family members is also important to prove that personality changes have occurred following an accident.
