Did you know that even a seemingly minor car crash or fall can lead to a traumatic brain injury? Even a slight brain injury can cause significant changes to your life. Moore Injury Law is a Phoenix serious injury law firm, and at Moore Injury Law we understand that a brain injury can have a dramatic impact on its victim in many ways: medically, physically, economically and psychologically.
If you were in an accident, you may have head trauma and not even know it. A traumatic brain injury can take months to show itself.
What are the Signs of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
The effects of a traumatic brain injury vary in type and severity. Here is a list of common cognitive problems that may indicate a traumatic brain injury:
- Lightheadedness, dizziness or blurred vision
- Difficulty with thought processing
- Memory loss
- Word recall difficulty
- Extreme Forgetfulness
- Inability to focus or concentrate
- Reduced ability to tolerate frustration
- Severe Mood Swings
Severe TBI may have these additional symptoms:
- Headache that gets worse or does not go away
- Repeated vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- Dilation of one or both pupils in the eye
- Slurred speech
- Weakness or numbness in the extremities
Often times the victim of a brain injury does not even realize they have been affected, or they will ignore the signs and symptoms, especially if they appear “mild”. If you have been in an accident and have any of the above symptoms it’s important to seek medical attention right away. Early testing by a neuropsychologist/neurologist is critical both for your physical well-being and for preserving your personal injury claim.

When Should You Hire an Attorney?
It’s important to contact Moore Injury Law as soon as possible after an accident so that your case and treatment can be well documented from the very beginning of your symptoms. This will give you the best chance possible of getting the compensation you deserve and the treatment you need.
What is the Cost of a Brain Injury Attorney?
Moore Injury Law, like most personal injury law firms, works on a contingency fee basis. That means that we only get paid if we win your case by settlement or trial. There is no up-front fee. We are paid a percentage of what we recover for you.
