A traumatic brain injury, even when mild, can permanently affect your ability to function at work and home, in your day-to-day life. If you are noticing mental and emotional changes after a truck accident, you should be evaluated by a specialist who can diagnose and document your condition. This will be necessary for you to obtain restitution, fair compensation for the harm.

Identifying the Effects of Serious Brain Trauma
If your head was impacted by an external object or subjected to an abrupt stop or acceleration (shearing injury) in a truck accident, it is possible that you have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These injuries may not be immediately obvious, but may show up later with symptoms that you’ve never experienced before, such as:
- Poor concentration
- Inability to cope with stress
- Declining job performance
- Behavioral variability
At the beginning, you may chalk up these head injury symptoms to the shock of being in a crash or the aftereffects of your treatment for other injuries such as fractures. But when these types of symptoms persist, they are often a sign of traumatic brain injuries.
The effects of brain injuries can be long-term, permanent and substantial. If your head injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for the harm and for the expected financial and burdens your injuries will have on the rest of your life.
Working With Experts to Diagnose Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries do not always show up on CT scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) films. Our head injury law firm works with qualified neuropsychologists to get our clients carefully evaluated so we can determine whether and to what extent they have suffered traumatic brain injuries.
