Hi, I’m David Daggett with Daggett Shuler Attorneys at Law. One of the most significant and catastrophic types of injuries that anyone could suffer is called a traumatic brain injury, also called a TBI. The top two causes of TBIs are falls and motor vehicle accidents, both of which could be caused by the negligence of another person.

There are many different types of TBIs, all of which are significant and potentially life-changing. They include:

  • Concussions – this is a type of brain injury caused by a shock or blow to the head. These very serious head injuries can be life-changing and life-threatening, though the long-lasting effects have historically been downplayed.
  • Diffuse Axonal TBIs – violent accidents can cause structural damage to the brain, including tears, rips, or shredding to brain tissue or neural pathways. These injuries are often debilitating and unrepairable.
  • Coup-contrecoup TBIs – whiplash accidents can cause the brain to slide back-and-forth inside the skull, sustaining injuries on both sides, and resulting in life-threatening swelling.
  • Penetrating injuries – when debris pierces through the skull and damages the brain, it can be catastrophic or fatal.

Although medical professionals will classify these types of TBIs as severe, moderate, or mild, there is no such thing as a mild TBI – all brain injuries are significant and can have life altering effects.

If you or someone you love has suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury due to an accident at work or a car crash, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side.

Unfortunately, the effects of a TBI and the recovery time can be very long so you need a lawyer looking after your rights. Sometimes TBIs won’t show up on advanced imaging studies, but still cause debilitating symptoms and greatly impact the injured person’s life. Due to the elusive nature of the injury, victims and their families must seek out a personal injury law firm who will fight to get the recovery you deserve.
