Traumatic Brain Injuries are an all-too-frequent consequence of injury accidents. Any brain injury is serious. Traumatic Brain Injury can occur in many situations, particularly motor vehicle accidents. The significant forces involved in vehicle collisions can produce major head trauma with long-term adverse effects. Closed head injuries may not produce visible traumas, but they can cause permanent injuries including headaches, short-term and long-term memory loss, mood changes, and loss of cognitive functions. The injured person often may be unaware of these changes. It is quite often that the injured person's family and friends are the first to realize that something significant has occurred. In any injury incident involving a blow to the head, the person’s friends and family should be alert for any changes in the injured person's mental or emotional status. Significant or lasting changes should be reported to a physician.

Traumatic Brain Injuries can only be properly evaluated with the input of experienced medical personnel including, neurologists, and neuropsychologists. If you believe that you or a family member may have suffered a traumatic brain injury as the result of another person's negligence, you should seek immediate medical care for the injury and you should seek our advice as attorneys experienced in Traumatic Brain Injury cases.
