Understanding Brain Injuries and the Symptoms Involved

Brain injuries are the result of trauma to the head, like a collision, blow to the head, or penetration of the skull. Common causes of brain injuries include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, sports injuries, medical malpractice, and violence. Your symptoms will depend on the severity of your brain injury, but may include:

Mild Brain Damage

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Memory loss
  • Changes in vision

Moderate Brain Damage

  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • The inability to concentrate
  • Problems with speech and memory

Severe Brain Damage

  • A different personality
  • Unusual behavior
  • Loss of coordination
  • Coma
  • Death

Brain injuries are often catastrophic injuries with long-term or even permanent impacts. After the initial injury, secondary injuries can occur or the victim's condition may become worse. Seek medical treatment right away to try and get an accurate diagnosis to mitigate the damage. Then, contact our Bellevue personal injury attorney office.

Getting Results in Brain Injury Cases

Our traumatic brain injury attorney won an award of $1,152,854 for our client with a $125,000 loss of consortium to our client's spouse.

The Dangers of Traumatic Brain Injuries and How We Can Build Your Case

Many people who have a traumatic brain injury don't realize it at first, and busy emergency rooms often fail to recognize the signs. Additionally, many imaging tests can't determine the extent of the damage following a head injury. Because of this, our brain injury lawyer has developed an approach that can prove the extent of your injury to build a solid case. This approach involves:
Traumatic brain injuries can cause cognitive problems that take a toll on your ability to work.
Traumatic brain injuries can cause cognitive problems that take a toll on your ability to work.

A Doctor Evaluation

Even if you got care in an emergency room, we recommend that you undergo a doctor's evaluation shortly after the accident. Be sure to tell your doctor about any symptoms of a traumatic brain injury you may be experiencing so that they can diagnose you correctly.

Advanced Testing

Charlotte Weigel works with a neuroradiologist who can suggest alternate tests that can provide evidence of your brain injury.


Our traumatic brain injury attorney can interview witnesses to highlight the effects of your injury. In many cases, Charlotte Weigel can interview coworkers who knew you before and after your accident to illustrate how the injury has changed you.

How Our Approach Works A Deep Dive Into a Real Case

One of our clients came to us after he suffered a blow to the head. He was an accountant, a job that requires focused data analysis and attention to detail – skills that can decline with a brain injury. Our client was diagnosed with a concussion a week after the injury, but his traumatic brain injury was not discovered.

When our client's symptoms didn't resolve and the medical community had given up on trying to figure out what was wrong, our traumatic brain injury lawyer ordered an MRI and a blood flow to the brain study. The evidence proved the existence of the brain injury. Our personal injury lawyer went one step further and acquired the witness testimony of one of our client's coworkers who illustrated what our client was capable of before his brain injury.

Charlotte Weigel was able to build a compelling case using this well-rounded approach.
