A minor concussion followed by a headache or some fatigue may seem normal. When a headache continues to nag you day after day and a “sleepy day” turns into a month, you possess signs of suffering from a serious head injury.

Symptoms of a Head Injury
Because of the brain’s central role in our physical bodies, few injuries affect a person as completely as a head or brain injury. No two injuries are exactly alike, and it can be difficult to pinpoint the problem between different cases. Common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include, but are not limited to:
- Severe concussion
- Chronic fatigue
- Vision problems
- Ringing ears
- Difficulty speaking
- Memory loss
The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that 2.4 million people in the United States suffer a traumatic brain injury every year. The two highest causes of traumatic brain injuries are falls (at 35.2%), followed by motor vehicle accidents at (17.3%).
A car accident, playground fall, or similar “freak accident” can happen in a split second, but the ongoing cognitive issues of a head injury can affect your life for years. An overwhelming 3.17 million Americans currently live with disabilities related to a traumatic brain injury.
If you or a loved one suffers from the repercussions of a severe head injury or severe brain injury related to an accident or product liability, you might be eligible to receive compensation to help pay for medical expenses and other losses.
