A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occurs when the brain is injured by a sudden force or trauma. The brain can be driven into the side of the skull either by a direct blow to the head, or through the force of shaking or “whiplash”. In either case, the brain can suffer bruising and swelling, or if the impact is more severe, torn blood vessels causing intracranial bleeding.
Our relationships with leading doctors, CT and MRI facilities help ensure you receive a prompt and accurate diagnosis of your head injury.
A severe TBI can result in irreversible damage to the brain and may lead to a number of disabilities such as paralysis, seizures, blindness and impaired speech. However, the symptoms of a mild TBI can be far more subtle. Recurring headaches, difficulty concentrating or a change in emotional behavior could all be symptoms of a brain injury.
We understand that even a mild TBI can not only impact one’s capacity to work, but can also have a profound effect on one’s quality of life, including the ability to interact socially and maintain relationships. Your compensation should reflect the loss of these intangibles as well.
