Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Attorneys

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are common head injuries that may occur as the result of a car accident, sports injury, slip and fall, or other injury accident that causes a sharp blow or jolt to the head.  The impact of the jolt damages brain tissue potentially leading to a wide variety of neurological issues that may have a lifelong impact requiring medical attention.

In some situations, the effects of a TBI may be immediate and severe.  Symptoms of moderate to severe TBIs may include the following:

  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Slurred speech
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of coordination

However, other times, the symptoms of  a TBI may not show up immediately. Some warning signs of mild TBI include:

  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Behavioral changes
  • Memory issues

Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injuries

If you have sustained a TBI, treatment is possible.  However, the extent of recovery depends on how soon you begin treatment and the severity of your injury.  As a result, it is critical to see a doctor as soon as possible if you believe you may have sustained an injury. Treatment may include therapy, surgery, and/or rehabilitation. Left untreated, the effects of a TBI worsen overtime and may lead to substantial cognitive, communicative, and behavioral changes.
