Birmingham Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Brain Injury Litigation

With the various injuries a plaintiff may suffer, few are as medically complex as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). When a plaintiff presents with a TBI, regardless of whether the injury is mild or severe, the case potentially becomes much more complex because of the nature of TBIs. To evaluate and assess the damage component of a case involving a TBI, attorneys must ensure that they are prepared to handle the challenges of a complex medical presentation and a myriad of possible prognoses.

 

There are a number of potential causes of TBIs, but motor vehicle
collisions and falls are two of the top three leading causes, with the
third being gunshot wounds. The mechanisms of injury are varied and
complex and include open head injuries, closed head injuries,
deceleration injuries, and chemical injuries.

 

While moderate to severe TBIs are often obvious, many people suffer
mild TBIs in accidents without realizing it. Because we know what
questions to ask friends and family members, we often hear from some-
one other than our client that our client has changed after an accident.
Symptoms such as irritability, inability to concentrate, sleeplessness,
and changes in personality may be more than a temporary response to
discomfort or medication. These may be signs of a serious brain injury.

 

At Riley & Jackson, P.C., we handle traumatic brain injury cases. One of our partners, Keith Jackson, often speaks at seminars on the subject of TBIs. We offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case.

 

What Is Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury is any trauma that injures the brain.

Brain injuries are easy to diagnose when the skull is fractured or penetrated. However, the majority of brain injuries are "closed head" injuries where there is no outward sign that brain damage has occurred. These injuries can be caused by rapid deceleration, such as when the speed of a traveling vehicle quickly drops to zero in an automobile collision, or when a person strikes his or her head during a fall. These are complex cases that our attorneys are experienced in litigating.

 

If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have suffered a brain injury in an accident, please contact our attorneys to schedule an appointment. These injuries typically do not go away or get better on their own.
