A traumatic brain injury (TBI) requires immediate diagnosis. Otherwise, the longer the injury goes undiagnosed, the longer it remains untreated. And, if the injury is left untreated for an extended period of time, it can cause irrevocable damage.
The personal injury lawyers at Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams, PLLC recognize the importance of proper diagnosis and treatment of TBIs. We encourage people to go to an emergency room if an incident occurs that causes TBI symptoms. In addition, if you need help getting fair compensation from someone responsible for a TBI, we can provide assistance.
TBI symptoms can escalate quickly without treatment, according to the Mayo Clinic. If someone experiences headache, nausea, or other TBI symptoms, urgent medical care is paramount. That way, this individual can receive appropriate testing to determine if he or she is dealing with a TBI.
Common tests used to diagnose a TBI include:
Following a diagnosis of a TBI, a doctor crafts a personalized treatment plan for their patient. Next, the doctor and patient work together to execute the plan and ensure it delivers the optimal results.
A mild brain injury can cause symptoms that disappear on their own within a few hours or days of onset. Comparatively, a TBI can result in long-lasting symptoms that require drugs, surgery, and other treatments to alleviate.
The cost of TBI treatment can be expensive, particularly for those who are coping with severe brain damage. Fortunately, compensation may be available from negligent parties who caused a fall, car accident, or other incidents that led to a TBI.
