What is a TBI?
A traumatic brain injury, or a TBI, is a complex injury with varying symptoms and long-term effects. In some cases, signs of a TBI may be immediately apparent. In other cases, they may not appear for weeks or months. As a result, these already complex injuries can become difficult to diagnose correctly.
How Do these Injuries Occur?
More than one million Americans suffer a TBI each year. One of the most common causes of these injuries are motor vehicle accidents, but any accident that results in trauma to the head can cause a TBI. These may include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Lack of oxygen, which may occur during birth or during a medical procedure
- Chemical exposure
- Repeated head trauma, often experienced by athletes
No matter the cause of your injury, our team can thoroughly investigate your case and hold the appropriate party responsible.
Traumatic brain injuries fall into two categories: mild and severe. However, even a mild TBI can have a significant impact on a victim’s quality of life. Victims may require long-term care in a hospital, which is often followed by extensive rehabilitation. A TBI can significantly alter a victim’s brain function, which can result in changes to their personality, ability to communicate, and motor skills.

This type of injury can leave victims unable to return to work for extended periods of time, if at all. It may also place a strain on relationships with the victim's spouse, children, or other family members. Large medical expenses often contribute to hardship, especially if the victim is unable to work.
Determining Liability and Pursuing Damages
In order to collect damages for a TBI, you must first determine who is liable. At our law firm, we can conduct a full investigation, examining all potentially liable parties. Once we determine accountability, we can gather evidence to help prove a party’s negligence directly led to your injury. This step is crucial to ensuring you collect just compensation for:
- Ongoing medical expenses, including rehabilitation, therapy, and other related costs
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity, especially in cases where a TBI has resulted in a permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium, or love and companionship, due to permanent behavioral or personality changes
We understand the complex nature of these cases, which is why we can use our extensive resources to help you navigate through all legal proceedings.
