How an Attorney Can Help
Brain injuries often result in lifelong consequences. Individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury face a long, arduous road to recovery. This recovery typically involves on-going medical expenses that can last many years after the initial injury. Effects of a brain injury often include impaired thinking, memory, movement, vision, hearing, or emotional functioning. Victims of TBIs may experience dramatic changes in personality or profound depression. These injuries rarely affect only the victim, and can have lasting effects on families and communities.

Common Causes of TBI

- Motor vehicle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Sports injuries
- Explosive blasts, such as refinery explosions
These injuries can range from a mild concussion to a very severe head wound and contribute to about 30 percent of all injury deaths in the United States.
