Suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can completely change your life. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of TBIs in the United States. However, they can also be caused by dangerous working conditions, slip-and-fall accidents, medical error, assault and/or battery, and other forms of negligence or recklessness. If you or a loved one have suffered a TBI due to another’s negligence, you do not have to shoulder the burden alone. A personal injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation that you deserve, and allow you to get back to focusing on your life and recovery.

Legal Challenges with TBIs

Traumatic brain injuries are not always immediately diagnosable. While it may be obvious in some cases, depending on the kind of injury, TBIs are not always caused by a blunt force trauma to the head, such as impacting with a windshield. Other times, the whiplash of an accident is enough to cause a TBI. This can be difficult to diagnose immediately following a car accident, as swelling or bleeding in the brain may take time to become apparent. Additionally, the symptoms of a TBI may take a while to become clear to the individual suffering, as headaches, brain fog, and fatigue are also not uncommon after suffering a physical catastrophe like a car crash. It can take a while to realize that something is different than before, and to determine the root cause. Some TBIs don’t even begin to develop until after the accident has occurred, due to damage sustained to the brain tissue. Swelling and bleeding of the brain can also be initiated after the trauma of the accident.
