A brain injury – also known as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), brain damage, head trauma, or concussion – can be catastrophic to one’s life, and the lives of loved ones. An injury to the brain can often take an immense physical, psychological, and financial toll on victims and their families. If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, you will need help getting the compensation you deserve to cope with the aftermath.
The brain is just as delicate as it is vital. Even something that initially seems like a minor injury can prove life-changing if certain portions of the brain are damaged. While brain injuries and concussions are devastating life-changing injuries, they are often not obvious to the casual observer looking at a person from the outside. That is why traumatic brain injuries are sometimes described as “invisible injuries”. Today, our society has learned more about the devastating nature of these otherwise “invisible” injuries.
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:
- Impact, concussion, or other internal brain vs. skull impact causing microscopic cellular damage
- Headaches or migraines
- May or may not include loss of consciousness; changed or altered consciousness such as being “dazed”
- May or may not include blood hemorrhaging in brain
- May or may not appear in medical diagnostic imaging, such as CT scans or MRI
- Anxiety and Depression
- Nausea or vomiting
- Vision problems, sensitivity to light or sound
- Hearing problems, ringing ears
- Confusion or other cognitive problems, such as memory deficiencies, difficulty focusing/concentrating
- Difficulty performing at school or work
- Change in personality, mood, or behaviors
- Irritability and irrationality
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Other emotional and behavioral problems
If you or a loved one has suffered a concussion injury, also known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), you understand the devastating emotional and financial impact it can have on a family. Any traumatic brain injury case should be handled by attorneys experienced in brain injury cases.
We understand what it takes to obtain full and fair justice for client’s suffering from brain injuries, and we’ve obtained numerous 7-figure recoveries for our clients suffering from TBIs. Just as you need specialized medical experts to get the right care, you need an experienced attorney who understands the medicine surrounding brain injuries, and how to prove these injuries and their consequences in a court of law.
Often times the defendant’s attorneys and insurance carriers deny that a brain injury or concussion injury occurred at all, and instead attempt to cast doubt on the injury by either overtly or tacitly arguing the victim is either not injured or exaggerating injuries because brain injuries are difficult to diagnose. However, most of the time a brain injury cannot be seen on a diagnostic image such as a CT Scan, X-ray, or MRI – yet the injury victim suffers daily with post-concussive symptoms they experience everyday and cannot escape.
