Traumatic Brain Injury Cases on the Rise

TBI Cases on the Rise

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are closed head injuries resulting from impact with another object, and can lead to severe, permanent brain damage or death.  Whether caused by a traffic accident, slip and fall, or even a collision in a sports event, TBIs should be taken seriously and the patient should be carefully monitored and diagnosed by medical professionals using up-to-date equipment. 

Failure to properly diagnose the severity of a TBI can have devastating consequences. Some indications that a “mild” head injury may need immediate medical attention are:

  • Changes in mood or personality
  • Changes in cognitive ability
  • Vision loss
  • Memory loss
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Violent behavior

We are seeing more cases where continuing medical problems in patients are linked to TBIs.  Despite advances in the diagnosis and treatment of TBIs, many still go undiagnosed or under-diagnosed, and the greatest tragedy is that many of the TBIs could have been prevented in the first place.

If you or someone you know was in an accident resulting in TBI, the injured person and his or her family may be eligible to receive compensation if the accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another.

Since every case is fact-specific, you should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to evaluate the facts related to your case and help you choose the right course of action.
