Traumatic Brain Injury

 

Accidents can have a wide range of consequences, some of them quite severe. Among the most serious and debilitating injuries, the attorneys at The Cochran Firm see are traumatic brain injuries.

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can be broadly defined as any trauma or blow to the head that causes a disruption in the normal functioning of your brain. However, our TBI lawyers know that description doesn’t do justice to the pain and misery these injuries can inflict.

Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

Our TBI lawyers will thoroughly investigate your case to determine the precise cause of your traumatic brain injuries. Once we do, we can make a case for liability against the party or parties responsible.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
It is absolutely crucial that you undergo a complete medical examination after your accident. Catching brain injuries early can pay significant dividends down the road.

Still, a medical exam can miss the early signs of a traumatic brain injury, even when the examination is professional and quite well-administered. So it’s crucial to keep an eye out for the following symptoms if you suffered head trauma during your accident:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Light sensitivity
  • Loss of coordination
  • Seizures

If you experience these symptoms, go to a doctor immediately and get yourself checked out. An MRI might be necessary to confirm a traumatic brain injury, and some medical professionals are reluctant to order such a procedure unless there’s reasonable cause to believe it’s necessary.

Finally, be sure you share all of this information with your TBI lawyer. We have resources and connections that can make your medical experience slightly more comforting. And in the courtroom and the negotiating room, no one will work harder on your behalf than The Cochran Firm.
