How Are Brain Injuries Diagnosed?
A head injury victim or close friends or family members may recognize the symptoms of a brain injury and report those to medical personnel.
Doctors are then likely to order tests to further diagnose and plan treatment for any brain damage that has occurred due to any of the following:
- A car accident
- A construction site accident
- A fall on ice or snow
- A fall from a height
- Head injury caused by falling debris in a discount grocery warehouse or other circumstances
Your doctor may reach out to specialists and imagery clinics to obtain more detailed information about your brain injury.
Medical diagnosis of your brain bleed, concussion or contusion may include one or more of the following:
- Neuropsychological testing
- Diagnostic imagining, such as an MRI or CT scan
If your doctor has ordered such tests following a traumatic blow to the head and your insurance company is balking, talk to us. We have extensive experience with insurance coverage and insurance bad faith matters. Although your brain injury may appear mild to other people at this point, it is important to pursue every medical path that may lead to a strong case for the compensation that you need after a serious injury.
