Traumatic Brain Injuries can occur in almost any type of accident. To successfully handle these types of injuries requires a thorough understanding of the different causes, signs, and symptoms of a brain injury. A full analysis from both a legal and medical point of view must be conducted to properly evaluate the trauma to the brain.

Roth & Roth's traumatic brain injury lawyers have worked with clients who suffer from mild, moderate, and severe traumatic brain injury. "Mild" TBI can be especially difficult because it is a destructive, debilitating injury that can exist but is often not diagnosed until years after the incident.

Diagnosing a traumatic brain injury is the first critical step in understanding the depth and breadth of this type of injury. A person suffering from a TBI may experience loss of consciousness or cognitive confusion at the scene or even well after the accident.

Someone may seem different from the way they used to be. This might be in the way the person acts, talks or in the way they perform simple tasks. People can experience symptoms of changed personality, problems getting along with others, or the inability to hold onto relationships or a job where previously there was no problem.

Be aware that a negative MRI or CT Scan is not proof of a lack of a traumatic brain injury. It can take time for a head injury to appear as a finding showing on an MRI or CT Scan, so an early negative scan of the brain does not necessarily mean there wasn't a TBI. 

The CDC defines TBI as a serious public health problem in the United States. Each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. 

A TBI may be caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of a TBI may range from "mild," - a brief change in mental status or consciousness to "severe," - an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. The majority of TBIs that occur each year are concussions or other forms of mild TBI.

Roth & Roth has successfully resolved numerous traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases, obtaining tremendous results for our clients. We take a holistic approach to identifying a traumatically injured person's baseline at the time of injury by identifying each and every deficit associated with the traumatic brain injury. Often the effects of TBI are not readily apparent and only reveal themselves over time.  At Roth & Roth, we look at the whole person, not just one aspect such as employability or memory.

If you or a family member has suffered from a traumatic brain injury, please call us at (212) 425-1020, or use our contact form - we're here to help.
