Helping Clients Understand the Intricacies of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
How do I know if I have suffered from a traumatic brain injury (TBI)? The answer is surprisingly more complicated than what the average person may assume. While there are the obvious and noticeable symptoms of an injury indicating trauma to the brain, such as loss of memory, sensory and motor skills, there are also more subtle symptoms of traumatic brain injury. In fact, the symptoms can be nearly undetectable. Sometimes only a thorough examination by a doctor who specializes in head injuries can actually confirm a diagnosis of a TBI. The key is: no two brain injuries are the same or even alike.

Advances in Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
In cases involving injury to the head, whether caused by a falling object on a job site or a low-speed collision with a semi truck or passenger vehicle, it's entirely possible that substantial brain damage has been sustained without any obvious signs of a serious injury. Within the last decade, new advances in brain research have led medical professionals and researchers to a better understanding of the complexities of brain injuries.
That is why it is so important to never rule out brain trauma after an accident, as the effects of a closed head injury can be subtle or even imperceptible to anyone other than those who know the victim well, such as a spouse or parent. The Wisconsin closed head injury attorneys at Domnitz & Skemp are always careful to consider the possibility of continuing brain function deficits or undiagnosed injuries, especially when the victim is reported to have experienced changes in mood, habits or behavior since the accident that are difficult to explain.
In such cases, we always make sure that a thorough neuropsychological examination is performed by a qualified medical professional familiar with the diagnoses and treatment of closed head injuries. Such testing can reveal tiny tears in the seams between different portions of the brain. Without that type of thorough evaluation, an important component of the victim's compensable damages might be overlooked.
