Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and their associated disorders provide a complex array of symptoms that can permanently disable an injured person. While cognitive changes are most common, TBIs can impact more than just the cognitive changes demonstrated on neuropsychological evaluations.

In this video, functional neurologist Dr. Glen Zielinski explains the neurological aspects of a traumatic brain injury and associated conditions such as vestibular and visual disturbances. This lecture discusses methods of objectively demonstrating TBIs in ways that cannot be influenced by malingering, somatoform disorder, or depression—each a common defense in TBI litigation cases.

  • Topics covered in this lecture include:
  • Vestibular/Balance Changes after a TBI
  • Visual Dysfunction After a TBI
  • Sleep Disturbances after a TBI
  • Immune System Damage and CTE after a TBI
  • PTSD and Depression after a TBI
  • Gastrointestinal Changes after a TBI
  • Autoimmune Conditions after a TBI
  • Seizures after a TBI
  • Endocrine/Hormone Dysfunction after a TBI 

This lecture also discusses why systemic health problems can worsen over time after a TBI and result in permanent health consequences that result in substantial economic and noneconomic damages for a TBI survivor. This lecture will provide important insights for any lawyer or doctor who handles TBI cases—improving the understanding of everyone, from beginners to those with substantial TBI expertise.
