Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs anytime there is trauma or force to the brain causing injury. It does not always involve a direct blow to the head. TBI can be fatal and it can cause very obvious physical and mental impairment, but it is often referred to as an invisible disability because the consequences are not always obvious to the observer, even when they radically change the victim’s life. Our Madison traumatic brain injury attorneys can help you get the compensation you need so that you can afford the best and most advanced treatments and therapies for TBI.
Every Brain Injury is Unique
TBI affects each victim in unique and personal ways. Even a so-called mild brain injury can cause disabilities. TBI can have physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral consequences which affect not only the injured person, but can also be very painful and confusing for loved ones. Symptoms may be intermittent and can include memory loss, poor judgment, unexplained anger, and chronic pain.
Although the consequences of TBI are obvious in some cases, those who do not show visible signs of injury can have a hard time proving their case in court. Our traumatic brain injury attorneys have a unique approach. We get to know you and your family personally and learn about how TBI has affected and changed your lives. This allows us to present you to the jury as real people with real problems that they can related to.
Traumatic Brain Injury Causes
TBI is often the result of an accident such as:
- Motorcycle accident
- Truck accident
- Car accident
- Construction accident
- Nursing home neglect/abuse
- Sports accident
Whiplash, which is common in motor vehicle accidents, can cause TBI with no head injury. The extreme force cause the brain to slam into the inside of the skull.
