According to a recent U.S study, 80% of all traumatic brain injuries are caused by car or motorcycle accidents, 15% happen at home and the remainder are due to medical malpractice, work place accidents, sports related injuries and acts of violence. Regardless of cause, if you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you need experienced personal injury attorneys on your side.The human brain is an amazing yet delicate organ, and any blow to the head may result in a mild or traumatic brain injury. The symptoms associated with traumatic brain injury — also called “TBI’”s or “closed head injury” — may be subtle and not evident for days, weeks or even months after a head trauma.
A traumatic brain injury may be difficult for loved ones to recognize and hard to accurately diagnosis, absent a skilled and thorough medical evaluation. Some of the most common signs of a traumatic brain injury include:
- A loss of consciousness
- Headaches (with increasing severity)
- Impaired speech
- Memory problems
- Differently enlarged pupils
- Personality changes
- Coordination problems
Due to the potential severity of a brain injury, if you or someone you know has suffered a head trauma — no matter how insignificant it may seem — it is critical that you consult with medical doctor immediately. Failure to seek immediate medical care may result in catastrophic, life-threating consequences.

In such situations, your choice of a lawyer is critical.
