In the United States, millions of people suffer from brain injuries each year and for many, these life-changing events stem from an act of negligence. If you or a loved one has experienced undue suffering because of a TBI caused by another's reckless actions, you have the right to ask for compensation.

How Are TBIs Caused?
Traumatic brain injury can happen when an external, blunt force causes the brain to collide with the skull at high acceleration. Most brain injuries are caused by a physical blow to the head, such as those caused by falls, car accidents, and attacks. Sports injuries may also result in mild TBI.
Moreover, the organic injury often causes secondary injuries (or events occurring within minutes and days following the incident). These various complications, which can include variations in cerebral blood flow and relative pressures within the cranium, contribute substantially to the damage from the initial trauma.
What Are the Effects of TBI?
No matter how severe the traumatic brain injury, an individual can suffer from side effects that may cause permanent damage. These include:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty speaking clearly
- Altered personality
- Impaired fine motor skills
Patients with moderate to severe injuries often require rehabilitation that involves individually tailored treatment in the areas of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, and psychological and social support. These medical bills add up quickly and may be difficult to pay, especially when the injured party is not capable of returning to work.
