Pursuing Just Compensation For Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are complex and can result in long-term health concerns and ongoing rehabilitation. In many instances, the severity of the damage may not be fully apparent until some time after the accident. It takes an experienced attorney to fully analyze your injury and pursue the necessary compensation to protect your long-term health and financial security.

Understanding The Range Of TBI Severity
All brain injuries should be taken seriously, but some cause more bodily harm than others. Below, we outline common symptoms of TBIs, ranging from mild to severe. While this list is not comprehensive, some common TBI symptoms include:
- Mild: possible loss of consciousness, headache, confusion, speech problems, blurred vision and fatigue
- Moderate: loss of consciousness, vomiting, dilated pupils, confusion and loss of coordination
- Severe: extended loss of consciousness, convulsions, agitation and clear fluids draining from the ears or nose
What Should You Do If You Suspect a TBI?
If you or a loved one suffers a blow to the head, schedule a full medical evaluation. Even if you suspect only a mild injury, all head injuries are serious and warrant immediate medical attention. Symptoms may not fully present themselves for days or even weeks after an initial accident. After treatment, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to discuss your options. Do not trust that your insurance company’s settlement offer is fair or in your best interests.
