What Are Some Of The Symptoms Of A Brain or Spinal Cord Injury
It is common to require immediate emergency medical intervention after an injury to the spine or the brain because these injuries are often recognized immediately after the injury.
In the cases where the injury is not noticeable or visible at the time of the accident (or shortly thereafter), the injury may take some time to come to the surface. This is why it is not only important to seek medical care right after an accident, but to follow-up with your medical provider. You may initially not appear to be injured and later present with a major medical issue that was the result of the accident.
What symptoms to look out for:
- Headaches, Dizziness, Blurred Vision, Vomiting or Nausea
- Behavioral changes and changes in sleep patterns
- Feeling any pain or pressure along your spine
- Problems with your memory
- A decrease in muscle tone
- Numbness and Weakness or paralysis in arms or legs
Should you experience any of the above symptoms, it is critical that you get medical attention as soon as possible.
Seeking immediate and continuing medical care to facilitate your recovery after a brain injury or spinal cord injury is vital and should be your main focus. Because your recovery is so important, you also want to protect yourself and speak to an attorney about injury compensation that may be available to you if the accident was the result of another person/parties’ negligence. You may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical Expenses
- Loss of Wages
- Emotional stress and trauma
