Experience When You Need It
Accident Attorneys Experienced in Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
Considered some of the most complex matter known to humankind, the human brain houses cherished memories and future dreams. It coordinates consciousness, which gives us purpose, passion, motion and emotion. Protected by the thick bones of the skull, the brain is still susceptible to many types of trauma. Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”) also referred to as head injury, brain trauma and traumatic head injury is a devastating personal injury resulting from physical trauma to the head, neck and brain by a blow or strike, shaking, a bump or penetration that disrupts normal brain function. Common accidents that cause TBI are trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents and motor vehicle accidents. Non-violent incidents can cause brain trauma as well, such as drug overdose or chemical poisoning. The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that 1.7 million children and adults in the U.S. sustain a TBI each year, and currently more than 3.1 million children and adults in the U.S. live with a lifelong disability because of TBI.
Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury
Brain injury symptoms include difficulty speaking, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, changes in vision, dizziness, balance problems, paralysis, difficulty with thinking skills such as memory problems, poor judgment, poor attention span and slowed thought processing speed.
