For cases involving a severe traumatic brain injury, I involve my team of personal injury experts. That may include referrals to one or more of the many medical experts on my team, such as a neuropsychologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, or neurosurgeon.

A traumatic brain injury can be caused by a rapid acceleration/deceleration force. Motor vehicle accidents, including rear end collisions, T-bone accidents, and rollovers, can result in traumatic brain injuries. A strike to the head may cause a brain injury without a skull fracture.
A traumatic brain injury or TBI is an injury to the brain that affects how it normally works. A TBI is often caused by a sudden trauma or blow to the head, such as occurs in motor vehicle accidents. Traumatic brain injuries can result in severe, long-term disabilities. Ask for a free consultation with an injury lawyer if you have suffered a TBI.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) range in severity from mild to catastrophic. The severity of a TBI is typically classified based on combinations of:
- duration of unconsciousness
- the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score; GCS measures eye opening, verbal response, and motor response
- duration of post-traumatic amnesia
- and sometimes, the results of neuroimaging.
A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Some symptoms of MTBI include:
- memory loss
- poor concentration
Post-concussion syndrome is the term used to describe these symptoms.
A moderate or severe traumatic brain injury commonly involves a skull fracture and surgical intervention. Many individuals with severe TBI’s have persistent functional disabilities and temporary or prolonged neuropsychological or neuropsychiatric problems. Some of these include:
- personality disorder
- motor impairments
- speech impairments
- sexual dysfunction.
