Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are classified from mild to severe, although to refer to a brain injury as mild is misleading. Any brain injury damages brain cells and has the potential for significant short-term and/or long-term consequences.

A traumatic brain injury is basically any type of trauma to the brain caused by blunt force. Motor vehicle accidents account for approximately one-fifth of all traumatic brain injuries in the United States. We handle the following types of traumatic brain injury cases:
- Skull fracture
- Coup contrecoup injury
- Subdural hematoma
- Cerebral anoxia
The effects of a severe traumatic brain injury are usually immediate and obvious. But, in many TBI cases the symptoms are more subtle and difficult to pinpoint. A brain injury may cause:
- Cognitive difficulties (inability to reason, problem solve and/or concentrate; memory loss leading to mental fatigue, lack of organization and lack of ambition)
- Socialization difficulties (loss of inhibitions, self-control and proper judgment; difficulty developing or maintaining relationships; issues with irresponsibility)
- Emotional changes (altered personality, easily frustrated or irritated, unexplained mood swings, anxiety, depression)
- Physical changes (sexual dysfunction, headaches, dizziness, tinnitus, sleep disturbances, sensory impairments, seizures)
TBI cases usually take longer to develop than other cases because the full effects of a brain injury have to be measured over time. Therefore, it is important to choose the best brain injury law firm to represent you and your family — a firm with experience, resources and access to leading medical experts, including brain injury specialists and neuropsychologists, to ensure accurate documentation as to the extent and effects of the injury.
