The Truth About Senior Citizen Brain Injuries

Brain injuries impact everyone differently. However, whether you are working or retired, age 65 or 105, a brain injury may be a significant trauma. Your brain injury may impact your regular activities today and every day for the rest of your life.

Brain Injury Symptoms

If you fall, you are involved in a car crash, or you are hurt in another type of personal injury accident, you need to know about the symptoms of a brain injury. Symptoms include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to sound
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Balance issues
  • Vision changes
  • Speech problems, including slurred speech
  • Hearing changes, including ringing in the ears
  • Sudden memory problems
  • Unexplained mood changes or behavioral changes

A doctor can diagnose your injury and recommend a treatment plan for you.

Now Is the Time to Consider a Brain Injury Recovery

Medical help isn’t the only kind of professional assistance you need after a brain injury. If someone else’s negligence caused your brain injury, then you also need to know how to make a fair financial recovery.

You shouldn’t have to use your savings or go without care to pay for things like past and future medical expenses, lost income, out of pocket costs, physical pain, and emotional suffering. Instead, the person who caused your brain injury (or that person’s insurance company) should pay your damages.

Unfortunately, the person who caused your crash or their insurer, may argue that you fell or caused a car crash because of your age. While your age may make certain accidents more likely, you are not at fault simply because of your age. If you would not have suffered a brain injury but for someone else’s negligence, then you deserve to make a fair financial recovery.
