Head and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

One of the most devastating injuries that can occur is head or brain trauma. It can happen so quickly yet have permanent or long-term impact. Any impact to the head can cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI), even when the victim seems to recover quickly. Victims of head or brain injuries caused by the negligent actions of others need to be aware of their options to seek compensation to care for their injuries.

When the head is jarred or impacted, the brain can move inside the skull. This motion can damage different areas of the brain, causing a variety of symptoms. Severe brain injuries may have immediate symptoms such as unconsciousness, seizures, headaches and dizziness. However, not all TBIs are immediately apparent. The victim may seem to feel fine, yet symptoms occur over the next few days, weeks or months.

TBI causes an estimated 30% of injury deaths in the U.S. Those that survive TBI can be plagued with a variety of symptoms. Cognitive, emotional and physical symptoms can appear up to six months or longer after the injury. Brain injuries are also notoriously difficult to treat due to the complex nature of the damage. Those with a TBI may need ongoing therapy, medications and other treatments for many years, or even the rest of their lives.

Causes of TBI and Head Injuries

Any impact to the head can cause TBI, or a traumatic head injury. Auto accidents are a common cause of TBI, and contact sports are also a source of many head injuries. Workplace accidents including slip and falls, impact from falling objects and other head trauma can cause brain injuries. In newborns, medical errors during childbirth can cause brain injuries. When negligence is the key factor causing TBI, victims and their families have the right to pursue compensation to cover medical costs, lost income and the impact to quality of life.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
