Traumatic brain injury falls into two broad categories, each with its own distinctive characteristics. Researchers have classified TBIs as:
Either form of TBI requires medical assistance, which can be expensive and may not be covered by insurance.
TBIs can have many causes, and each carries important legal differences. A minor car crash or something simply landing on your head can result in mild TBI. More severe cases lead to a cause of action for wrongful death.
A few common sources of TBI include:
Any injury to your head or brain caused by someone else’s actions may entitle you to legal compensation. We can explain more.
Open TBI is easily diagnosed, for obvious reasons. But the signs that point to a closed TBI are often much more subtle. Doctors diagnose it through symptoms including:
The greater the injury, the more pronounced the symptoms are likely to be: Mild or moderate TBIs are often accompanied by strong headaches or feelings of fatigue, while more significant TBIs may leave victims unable to speak. And in other cases, symptoms take time to manifest themselves, delaying diagnosis and treatment. That’s why it’s important to see a doctor immediately if you’ve suffered head trauma of any kind, no matter how mild you think it may be.
We handle brain injury cases on a contingency fee basis. We do not get paid a legal fee until your loved one receives a settlement or jury verdict award.
