Symptoms of a Head or Brain Injury
Symptoms of a head or brain injury can vary depending on several factors, like the severity and angle of traumatic impact to the head. Brain injury symptoms can range from minor inconveniences on a person’s life, to completely limiting function or interaction. Symptoms can include:
- Excessive sleepiness / disturbed sleep
- Emotional outbursts
- Pain in other body parts
- Severe headache
- Loss of acquired skills
- Loss of consciousness
- Impaired memory / memory loss
Generally, symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) should lessen as the brain heals, but this takes time. Some symptoms are permanent. Sometimes the symptoms actually worsen because of the patient’s inability to adapt to changes in the brain, including brain swelling. Psychological problems, like depression and anxiety, can occur. Many head and brain injury victims’ lives are never the same.
Detecting a Brain Injury
While a head injury is often the first injury to occur in an accident, it can be the last to be diagnosed. For example, in a motor vehicle accident, often the brain is injured when the brain strikes the inside front or rear of the skull immediately after the impact of the vehicles. Sometimes, symptoms of a brain injury do not become apparent for weeks – or even months – after an accident.
Even then, extensive testing may be needed to determine the full scope of the injury. Patients often work with neurologists and are subject to MRIs and CAT scans, electroencephalograms (EEGs), SPECT scans, PET scans, and other studies. These tests can be very expensive.
Calculating the Value of a Head Injury or Brain Injury
At Miller Injury Attorneys, clients often ask us how much their cases are worth. Your case value depends on many factors. To determine its value, we often conduct an extensive review of your injuries and losses, including your medical expenses and wage loss. Our lawyers also consult with life care planners and other experts. These experts may testify at trial about your economic situation after a brain injury, and the home care, nursing care and support you or your loved one may need to make life as normal as possible.

Our Sacramento brain injury attorneys work on contingency fees. This means we will not charge you any fees unless your case yields financial restitution, in which case we will take our fee from a percentage of your winnings. This allows clients to pursue their cases without ever worrying about how they’ll afford the legal fees.
We are always ready to hear you out. Call (916) 525-7761 today.
