A: Head or brain injuries usually do not leave marks or any outward signs of injury. Such injuries are usually not visible on a diagnostic test like a CT scan. However, head or brain injuries often leave an injury victim with cognitive deficits and personality changes. Proving such deficits and changes requires skill and knowledge of brain injuries and their symptoms.

Proving that a head or brain injury resulted from an accident requires coordinating medical treatment records. In many cases, the injury victim’s family doctor and specialists may note the presence of the following symptoms:

  • headaches,
  • dizziness,
  • difficulty focusing,
  • memory lapses,
  • anxiety, and
  • depression.

A diagnosis of post concussion syndrome may be made. However, neuropsychological testing and treatment are often overlooked. Such tests can provide evidence of the head injury. In addition, head or brain injuries may also be proven by gathering statements from witnesses such as family members and co-workers. They can be quite powerful, offering details as to how the injured victim has changed as a result of an accident and head injury.

It is important to be represented by a qualified personal injury lawyer, one with experience representing people with head injuries.
