Traumatic brain injury symptoms might not appear right away. Oftentimes those with a brain injury may look “normal” even though the victim is suffering from cognitive, physical, and emotional repercussions. CT scans or MRIs of the brain can help prove that an individual has suffered a brain injury. Assessments from experts such neuropsychological testing of cognitive abilities or a vocational assessment can be useful evidence to show the lasting effects of a brain injury on the abilities and daily activities of an injured individual.
