Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (MTBI) can have devastating long-term consequences including short term memory loss, sleep disturbance, headaches, dizziness and the inability to maintain gainful employment.  The NFL has been dealing with these issues for a long term and four past players recently filed suit against the NFL in Atlanta.

A recent story reported that Jamal Lewis, Dorsey Levens, Fulton KuyKendall and Ryan Stewart filed suit against an NFL entity alleging that they are suffering lasting medical problems from concussions that happened when they were playing football.  The ex-players allege that they have medical problems including headaches, sleeplessness, and memory loss.

Brain injuries are difficult to diagnosis and the signs and symptoms are subtle and often overlooked.

All accident victims who struck their head in the incident(with or without loss of consciousness) have to be aware of symptoms associated with MTBI and report all symptoms to their doctors.  Some of the other MTBI symptoms can include loss of concentration, mood swings, ringing in the ears, and the inability to stay on task.  If you have been injured in an accident, and received the diagnosis of post-concussion syndrome in the emergency room, you may be susceptible to these insidious symptoms.

MTBI (mild traumatic brain injuries) can have devastating effects on injury victims lives; however, if the symptoms are overlooked and the physicians do not properly work-up and diagnose the condition, the injured person will not be treated properly and will not receive just compensation for their injuries.
