Clarksburg Brain Injury Seizure Lawyers
Traumatic brain injuries, which occur when physical trauma leads to brain damage, cause a wide array of serious and sometimes lifelong medical problems. The exact effects of a traumatic brain injury depend on the parts of the brain affected, but one of the more common lost-lasting effects is the recurrence of what are known as post-traumatic seizures.
Many traumatic brain injuries are caused by negligent or even malicious actions. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with post-traumatic seizures caused by another party’s actions, you may have grounds for legal action.

Symptoms of a Post-Traumatic Seizure
People who have suffered severe brain injuries are prone to suffering from seizures as a result. For someone whose brain is already weakened by trauma, seizures can exacerbate already-existing problems and cause new damage as well. Seizures can cause unconsciousness and violent bodily spasms, which can cause additional brain trauma.
The ultimate cause of seizures remains unknown, and doctors still do not know for sure exactly how brain injuries lead to seizure disorders. In addition, the symptoms can vary depending on what part of the brain affected. Nonetheless, the symptoms of a seizure can include:
- Involuntary contraction of muscles, even including full-body convulsions
- Short-term or long-term loss of memory
- Changes in sensory perception, such as distorted vision
- A sense of fear and total confusion
These symptoms can severely interfere with a person’s day-to-day life, especially if they are part of a lifelong seizure disorder. No one should have to live with such consequences due to another party’s careless actions.
