How Can a Car Accident Affect Your Speech, Walking, and Vision

Traumatic Brain Injury

One of the terms you might hear in personal injury litigation is TBI and that stands for Traumatic Brain Injury.  A TBI is when an accident occurs and your head is hit in such a way that your brain gets injured.  Your brain moves around in your skull so much that it causes bruising and sometimes traumatic injury. 

Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Often times, TBI is very difficult to diagnose, there are cases in which you could have a TBI and it could affect your eyesight which is called an ocular TBI.  There are cases in which you could have a TBI that could affect your speech or even the way that you walk.  Those are the types of things that are difficult to determine and an expert must do a full evaluation.  If you have been in an accident and you feel like you are having some issues that may be related to your speech, walking, or eyesight, then you may have a TBI and you need to get a full examination.  Give us a call so that we can help you with that.
