Causes and Symptoms of Brain Injuries
While some brain injuries are caused by defective drugs or medical malpractice, many are caused by violent blows to the head. Violent hits to the head often occur in the following situations:
- Motor vehicle crashes involving cars, trucks, motorcycles or pedestrians
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sports injuries
- Recreational activities
- Violent confrontations
- On-the-job accidents
Brain injuries are rated mild, moderate or severe, with severe injuries leaving victims minimally responsive or in a coma. However, it could take days or weeks for the full effects and symptoms of a brain injury to present themselves, no matter the severity of the injury.
That is why you should always seek medical treatment after suffering a blow to the head, regardless of whether or not you are experiencing brain injury symptoms, which could include:
- Feeling sick to your stomach
- Difficulty swallowing
- Trouble talking
- Struggling with balance or coordination
- Struggling to concentrate
- Memory loss
- Difficulty smelling things
- Sensitivity to light
- Trouble sleeping
- Changes in appetite

Why You Need a Palm Beach Gardens Brain Injury Lawyer
There are four keys to a successful legal claim for a traumatic brain injury:
- There was a duty of care – The defendant had a legal duty to behave like a reasonable person would if he or she was in the same kind of situation. For instance, medical professionals must adhere to accepted medical standards and motorists are required to follow traffic laws.
- Breach of duty of care - This means the individual accused of causing your injuries did not fulfill a duty of care.
- The primary cause of your injuries was the breach of duty of care - Your Palm Beach Gardens brain injury lawyer has to show a direct link between your injuries and the actions of the defendant.
- You suffered damages because of your injuries - There are a variety of damages victims can suffer from, including lost income, missed time at work, medical expenses and emotional suffering.
Proving a breach of duty of care and showing the breach was the main cause of your injuries are often the toughest parts of Palm Beach Gardens personal injury cases.
