  • What is traumatic brain injury (TBI)?

    • A traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects one or more area of the brain, often causing victims to suffer impairment to memory, vision, communication, and/or mobility. Typically caused by a sudden, violent blow to the head - such as the impact of a victim's head with a dashboard during a car accident - even seemingly minor head injuries can produce long-term problems.
    • According to the Mayo Clinic, 1.4 million Americans suffer traumatic brain injuries annually. Even seemingly minor brain injuries can produce long-term problems. If you have suffered a severe head injury, contact an Atlanta, Georgia traumatic brain injury attorney and schedule a case consultation and evaluation.
  • Who can sue for traumatic brain injury?

    • Anyone who suffers a traumatic brain injury as a result of another party's reckless, careless, or negligent actions may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Whether your head injury was sustained in an auto accident, workplace accident, or as the result of a dangerous product or unsafe premises, you can bring a claim against the responsible party.
  • Can a brain injury occur if a victim does not lose consciousness?

    • Yes. According to numerous medical studies, a permanent brain injury may occur without the loss of consciousness. Severe injuries may exist even when all imaging studies, such as MRI and CT scans, are negative. Traumatic brain injury victims experience diminished or altered consciousness, impaired cognitive abilities, impaired physical functioning, as well as altered emotional or behavioral responses. Head injury victims do not necessarily lose consciousness.
  • Even minor brain injuries can produce long-lasting problems.
