Traumatic Brain Injuries

An injury to the Brain, often referred to as "TBI", requires special experience.  TBI can occur in any accident, even if your head does not hit anything. TBI often goes undiagnosed after an accident because X-Rays, CT scans or MRI's may not show them unless there is severe swelling or bleeding.

Immediate symptoms are often assumed to be just a concussion. Even a mild concussion is capable of ruining your life.

Frequently, it is family members, and not doctors, who first suspect TBI.  Within months after a trauma, victims begin experiencing changes in personality, sleep disorders, migraines, cognitive and memory deficits, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, double vision, ringing in the ears, irritability, unsteadiness or disorientation.


My client was hit standing on the corner when two cars collided in the intersection. She sustained a severe TBI and, though she improved, she still had residual deficits. The matter resolved after trial for $1.3 million dollars. The Jury mostly faulted a young texting driver who refused to take any responsibility and had offered nothing before trial. 

Exemplar TBI Claims.
I have tried TBI claims to Juries and have been able to prove their existence through family members, even when the victim's own doctors were unhelpful.
