A traumatic brain injury (TBI) happens when the head forcefully hits something or when an object fractures the skull and enters the brain. Violent shaking or a sudden impact that jolts the brain against the skull also can cause traumatic brain injuries. People who have suffered the kind of severe head trauma that causes TBI can be victims of car accidents, falls, sports injuries, violent crimes, or physical abuse.
We understand the emotions and stress that families face in the aftermath of such a serious injury, especially if someone else’s negligence or actions are to blame. The victims or their families have a right to compensation, and we can help. Our experienced attorneys are very knowledgeable about the complex legal and medical issues associated with traumatic brain injury cases.
The long-lasting impact of a traumatic brain injury can be life changing, leaving the victim with physical disabilities affecting speech, sight, and movement. These challenges often require ongoing care and treatment, either at home or in a medical facility. The costs can be overwhelming, and when the injury is another person’s fault, you don’t have to bear that financial burden on your own. Additional damages you receive can be related to pain and suffering, as well as loss of income associated with the inability to work since the injury.
Brain injuries can have serious consequences, even when the victim experiences seemingly minor symptoms and the injury
If you suspect you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, the symptoms of complications to watch for include:
- Severe headache
- Confusion and difficulty remembering events
- Lightheadedness and dizziness
- Blurred vision or tired eyes
- Numbness or weakness on one side of the body
- Ringing in the ears
- Bad taste in the mouth
- Unusual fatigue
Our attorneys are committed to helping you with your legal case, and we won’t receive payment for services unless you recover compensation.
