Traumatic Brain Injuries

A Concussion Can Have Long-Term Consequences

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) afflict more than 1.7 million individuals each year, severely limiting their ability to live a normal life. A TBI may be the most serious injury a person can suffer, and can lead to short- and long-term issues affecting:

  • cognitive function (attention and memory)
  • motor function (weakness, coordination, balance)
  • sensation (hearing, vision, perception, function), and
  • emotion (depression, anxiety, aggression, personality changes)

It is important to find an attorney who knows how to obtain the financial compensation you or your loved one need to recover.

How To Prove Fault

A TBI can be sustained in many ways, including an automobile accident, a slip-and-fall, sporting activity, or assault, to name a few.

Proving fault in a brain injury case is not always easy. A TBI is not usually visible to the naked eye because injury to the brain frequently happens inside the skull, so the injury isn’t obvious like there may be with a fracture. TBIs are also not always visible with objective testing, such as an MRI or X-rays. The nature and extent of a TBI may not be fully appreciated until the injured person has been evaluated and tested by a neuropsychiatrist or neuropsychologist.

Insurance companies frequently challenge people who suffer TBI’s, and many times argue that the person’s complaints are subjective, the person is magnifying their symptoms, or that the person is faking.
