If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you may be facing a lifetime of recovery. A brain injury doesn’t affect just the person who is injured, it affects everyone around them.

When your brain injury is caused by another person’s negligence, a brain injury lawsuit may help you get compensation so you can pay bills and get the assistance you need.
Brain injuries as a result of an accident where the head is impacted can cause lifelong medical complications and require an experienced legal advocate who can assist the victim and their family with obtaining the necessary long-term care they may need. A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) may result from an incident where there is an event that has caused a violent movement, a sudden jolt or impact to the head and can cause the post-concussion syndrome, and serious, permanent brain damage, paralysis, and even death.
What Causes Traumatic Brain Injuries?
There are several types of brain injuries that can occur as a result of accidents where a violent movement, a sudden jolt, or an impact happened to the head. Below is a list of the more common accidents that can cause brain injuries:
Vehicle accidents – Head-on collisions, side impact collisions, rear-end collisions resulting in head jolts, and collisions causing impact with hard objects within or outside the vehicle
Struck by a tool, machine, or object in or around industrial apparatus
The consequences of brain injury can last a lifetime. Traumatic Brain Injuries may affect a person’s cognitive ability, personality, emotional condition and physical well being. Call me for an appointment if you have a brain injury. I can help.

Closed Head Injuries
A closed head injury is one that doesn’t penetrate or open the skull. Instead, the injuries are internal. The most common closed head injury is a brain concussion. The skull encases and protects the brain. Inside the skull is a cerebrospinal fluid. The fluid acts as a shock absorber to protect the brain upon impact. When the impact is severe enough, the cerebrospinal fluid moves, and the brain hits the skull.
Open Head Injuries
An open head injury is one where the force of an impact on the head is significant enough to penetrate the soft tissue of the head and scalp into the skull. When this occurs, the skull can fracture.
