This injury occurs when brain tissue is damaged by a hard blow to the head or by a jolt that causes the brain to suddenly move back-and-forth or side-to-side, striking the skull.
As our law firm has seen, TBI arises most commonly in the car and other motor vehicle accidents. However, brain injuries also frequently result from falls, workplace accidents, or incidents involving sports or recreation activities.

In some cases, punitive damages may be sought as well. These damages would be aimed at punishing the person who caused the TBI due to his or her especially reckless or willful misconduct.

We have represented injured people for over 20 years. We care about putting our clients in the best position possible and we strive to get our clients medical attention from medical specialist and collect maximum compensation for the injuries our clients suffer.
We file many personal injury cases every month. Some cases have more value with a lawsuit being filed and some have more value outside of litigation. We use our many years of experience to determine how to add the most value to your case.
The case must be fully developed to answer this question. It is dependent on the amount of medical bills and the degree of injury reflected in the medical records. It also depends on the facts surrounding how the injury occurred and the size of the insurance policy of the defendant. We take into account all factors in advising you the value of your case.
This depends on how long it takes for you to recover from your injury. You need to heal from your injury or at least be in a position where the doctors can render a good opinion regarding your injury. The harm you incurred must be able to be measured. After you have recovered we can many times have your case settled within 60 days if a lawsuit is not required or 12 months if a lawsuit is required. We typically only recommend a lawsuit if the insurance company is not offering to pay a fair value and we believe that litigation will add additional money to your settlement.
