When a person suffers a traumatic brain injury, they may experience a wide range of different effects. Some of the most common of these include concussions and brain damage, but in some cases, brain injury victims may experience other effects, including seizures. Seizures occur when the activity of neurons in the brain becomes irregular, and may manifest themselves as convulsive fits, a temporary loss of consciousness, or a range of other different symptoms.
If you or someone you know has developed seizures or seizure-like symptoms following a traumatic brain injury caused by another person’s negligent or reckless actions, you deserve to be compensated for your suffering.

Seizures are frequently associated with sudden, involuntary muscle spasms and loss of consciousness. However, these are not the only potential symptoms of seizures, nor is it necessary for these symptoms to be present for a diagnosis of seizure. Other common seizure symptoms include:
- A feeling of numbness throughout the body
- Memory loss, either brief or long-term
- Extreme confusion and fear
- Visual and olfactory sensory changes
- Rapid blinking
An individual who experiences these and certain other symptoms may have suffered from a seizure.
Seizures and other effects of traumatic brain injuries can have devastating consequences for those affected. Do not let someone else’s irresponsible behavior ruin your life.
