One of the most common injuries for survivors of a truck accident is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). These are actually traumatic brain damage cases because people don’t get well from these injuries. As a result of handling large numbers of these cases for clients I have developed a sub-specialty in the area of TBI. Recently my hard work paid off and I was elected to the Board of the American Association for Justice’s Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group (TBILG). This is the largest group of lawyers in the country representing those injured through the negligence of others. I look forward to helping other lawyers across the country handle these cases.
Some facts have become apparent in these cases :
- ER doctors don’t focus on TBI injuries because they wont kill you immediately, and that is all the ER doc is concerned about.
- In Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) cases family members are in the best spot to determine the extent of the injury and the changes to the victim.
- A loss of consciousness is not needed in order for a TBI to occur
I highly recommend that anyone that believes they, or a loved one, has a MTBI or a TBI, review the government’s Center for Disease Control website and publications on TBI’s. The government website can be found HERE.
