Brain injuries can range in severity from mild to severe and are often difficult to diagnose.
Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (MTBIs) are initially diagnosed as concussions because symptoms may not be readily apparent at the time of treatment. These symptoms may include:
- Short term memory loss
- Confusion when trying to concentrate
- Distress when being in places with loud noised
- Emotional imbalances / a short temper
- Slurred speech or difficulty forming sentences
It can be difficult to obtain compensation for care because victims appear normal. For this reason, we often engage neuropsychologists and other brain experts to accurately diagnose your condition. Once we have an accurate diagnosis, we can fight to get you the compensation you need.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs), on the other hand, are easily diagnosed and usually result in lifelong mental impairment or disability.
When TBIs occur, victims often experience a drastic decline in their quality of life. In these cases, the focus is on developing a long-term rehabilitation plan designed to help the victim gain maximum physical recovery.
We work with clients to hire medical experts specializing in TBI treatment and recovery, occupational therapists, and even financial advisors to work out financials plans to meet the victim’s current and future needs.
We understand that even though a brain injury may not be obvious, it may still be debilitating, and our job is to fight on your behalf so that you get the compensation you need to heal.
