Aggressive Legal Representation For Brain Injury Claims

A violent blow or impact to the head or body has the potential to produce a traumatic brain injury. The residual may last a lifetime, however, even a Minor Traumatic Brain Injury, aka Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) will often result in some degree of cognitive impairment with serious consequences on the daily life of the victim.

A brain injury has wide-ranging physical and psychological impacts. Signs and symptoms do not always appear immediately but may follow days or weeks later. Frequently seen signs and symptoms of a MTBI include:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • No loss of consciousness but being in a state of confusion or disorientation
  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Problems with word finding or speech
  • Sleep disruption
  • Dizziness and balance issues

Some sensory symptoms include:

  • Vision problems, including blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Changes in the ability to smell
  • Light sensitivity
  • Sound sensitivity

Cognitive mental symptoms could include:

  • Memory problems
  • Concentration issues
  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety

Infants and young children are often not able to communicate so the diagnosis is more challenging.

If you have suffered a brain injury because of the negligence or wrongdoing of another, you may be entitled to significant compensation which would include past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss and past and future general damages, including quality of life, impairment, physical impairment, mental suffering and emotional distress.
