A traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to mild to severe brain damage that occurs as a result of an outside force impacting the head and injuring the brain. When the scalp, skull or body parts other than the brain are also injured, the damage is referred to by the more general term head injury. It is important to speak with an experienced attorney if you or a loved one has suffered a major injury.

The severity of a brain injury will depend on the cause of the traumatic brain injury and an individual’s medical history including other conditions from which he or she currently suffers.
It is obvious that individuals who suffer a traumatic brain injury should seek emergency medical care to prevent further damage to their health, in the most severe cases, prevent death. Once their health is stabilized, it is important that they follow through with all long-term prescribed treatments for the best chances of recovery.
After seeking medical care, patients should also seek legal help as they may be entitled to compensation for any damages incurred. Because of the costly medical bills that are often associated with TBIs, it is imperative for an injured individual to consult an experienced attorney with a successful track record of success in handling matters involving catastrophic injuries.
