Your Recovery Is Our Mission

When you have been injured, you don't just need an attorney. You need an advocate.

What is a Brain Injury?

A brain injury is any injury to the brain itself. A TBI can occur when the head suddenly and violently hits something (such as the ground), or when pressure is exerted on the brain. This pressure can come from a sudden change in blood pressure, a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly and hit against something, or the brain being squeezed inside the skull.

Common causes of brain injuries include:

The degrees of traumatic brain injury are typically categorized into three main levels: mild, moderate, and severe.

In mild TBI, there is a brief alteration of consciousness or loss of consciousness (for a few seconds or minutes) due to the head injury. Symptoms may include headache, confusion, dizziness, nausea, memory problems, and sensitivity to light and noise. The majority of individuals with mild TBI recover fully within a few weeks, but some may experience lingering symptoms, known as post-concussion syndrome, which can persist for months.

Moderate TBI involves a more significant impact to the head and often leads to an extended period of unconsciousness, ranging from several minutes to hours. Neurological impairments can be more pronounced, with symptoms such as persistent headache, repeated vomiting, seizures, coordination issues, and mood changes. Recovery from moderate TBI can be more challenging and may require intensive rehabilitation.

Severe TBI results from a very powerful blow to the head or penetrating head injury, causing a prolonged loss of consciousness, often lasting days or even weeks. The individual may enter a state of coma or experience a vegetative state, and the prognosis is generally more guarded. Severe TBI can lead to significant physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral impairments, and the recovery process may take years or could result in permanent disabilities.

The effects of a brain injury can vary. Some people may experience a mild TBI with no lingering effects, while others may experience a severe TBI with permanent disabilities. The severity of the injury will depend on the cause, the location of the injury, and the force of the impact.

Symptoms of a Brain Injury

A person who has suffered a brain injury may not always show symptoms right away. Sometimes, these injuries can be so mild that they go unnoticed. Other times, the symptoms may be very subtle, and people may not even realize what they are.

If your loved one has suffered a brain injury, you may want to keep an eye out for the following symptoms:

  • Changes in personality
  • Difficulty communicating
  • Difficulty remembering
  • Difficulty thinking
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Nausea
  • Numbness
  • Personality changes
  • Slow reactions
  • Speech difficulties
  • Vision problems

Seeking Compensation After a Brain Injury

A brain injury can have a devastating impact on your life. You may have suffered a traumatic brain injury when a defective product caused you to slip and fall, or when a violent criminal attacked you and caused you to sustain a TBI. Regardless of how you suffered a brain injury, you can seek compensation for the damages you have suffered.
