Traumatic brain injuries and mild traumatic brain injuries (such as concussions) are complex, often very serious medical conditions that typically occur when an external force disrupts normal brain function. Traumatic brain injuries, also called TBIs, can range in their severity, but in all cases, they require immediate medical attention. When undiagnosed or untreated, they often progress, sometimes rapidly, and can even lead to death, such as when a brain bleed goes undetected. Delayed treatment for a TBI can result in a much slower healing time and further complications, so it is imperative that you seek medical treatment immediately. If you or a loved one has sustained a traumatic brain injury due to the negligence of another, you should contact our dedicated brain injury lawyers as soon as you can.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can occur in a wide range of circumstances, but some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries are as follows:

  • Falls, especially among the elderly population.
  • Motor vehicle accidents, including car crashes.
  • Bicycle accidents and related head injuries.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

TBI symptoms vary from case to case and can be difficult to identify. Some patients will show little to no symptoms, at least at first, while for others, significant damage is immediately apparent. Although you may feel fine immediately following an impact, it is imperative that you be examined by an experienced TBI doctor (not all doctors are experienced in TBI diagnosis and treatment) after an impact to your head. Also, while you may feel normal after an impact to your head, oftentimes someone close to you will notice that you are acting a little off, but may not know exactly why. It is essential that you and those close to you learn what to look for so you can effectively communicate your symptoms to an experienced TBI medical professional. Some of the most common symptoms of TBIs are as follows:

  • Memory problems
  • Headache and dizziness
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Fatigue and sleep disturbances
  • Sensory changes (e.g., blurred vision)
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of balance
  • Speech and language difficulties

Proving Negligence

You will need to gather and present evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligent or unlawful behavior. This is not always straightforward, which is why you will need a competent team of TBI lawyers in your corner who can effectively handle your claim. Our firm can:

  • Collect relevant evidence, such as pictures/videos of the incident, police reports, witness statements, and more.
  • Interview relevant experts, such as doctors, TBI specialists, and accident reconstructionists.
  • Compile evidence and use it to negotiate with insurance companies to maximize your payout.
  • Take your case to trial if necessary.
