Lifelong Compensation For Traumatic Brain Injuries

After a serious accident, emergency personnel and medical staff often fail to ask if the injured person lost consciousness. Closed head injuries may be missed or misdiagnosed. Even when the patient has been comatose, we rarely see doctors order an aggressive evaluation of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), even though a neuropsychological evaluation is the only way to truly evaluate if a patient has sustained brain damage.

Compensation For Serious Head Injury And Brain Damage

Because of our experience working with clients who have brain injuries, and our experience working with traumatic brain injury experts, we are often able to identify clients who have suffered brain damage even if they have not yet received a proper medical assessment. We often work with board-certified neuropsychologists to ensure our clients get a thorough exam and correct diagnosis.

Brain Injuries Most Often Caused By Accidents

Concussion caused by sudden trauma to the brain

Contusion — a bruise (bleeding) on the brain

Coup-contrecoup injury
— contusions arising at the impact site as well as on the opposite side of the brain

Diffuse axonal injury — caused by shaking or strong rotation of the head, as with shaken baby syndrome, or by rotational forces, as can happen in a car accident

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) — closed or penetrating damage to brain tissue by an external mechanical force or motion

Second impact syndrome — also called r ecurrent traumatic brain injury, when a person sustains a second traumatic brain injury before the symptoms of the first traumatic brain injury have healed
