Discovering What Happened And What Is Likely To Happen

He will also review your medical records and perhaps communicate with your doctors to get a clear idea about how your life will be different after the headache than it was beforehand.
Symptoms range from severe to troublesome for head injury sufferers. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) may:
- Cause someone to lose consciousness
- Result in an open wound
- Result in a coma that lasts for hours, days or weeks
- Cause a bump on the head that appears to heal over time
- Leave a person with lingering symptoms such as headaches, moodiness, excessive sleepiness and/or vertigo
Getting an accurate understanding of the short-term and long-term symptoms of a TBI may require analysis by medical experts such as neuropsychologists. Other professionals, such as social workers, occupational specialists and/or life care planners in severe cases will also bring valuable insights to your case.
