Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) result from either a strong outside force, such as whiplash, or a blow to the head by a foreign object, the ground, or another surface. If you've suffered a head or brain injury due to someone else's negligence, Herbert Trial Law can help.
Most importantly, if you have a traumatic brain injury you may not know it. People who are experiencing cognitive limitations and memory loss are the least able to be aware of the difficulties and limitations that they are experiencing.
If you or a loved one have experienced any sort of head injury or concussion that person should be monitored closely to make sure that their cognitive abilities are not diminishing. If you have been given a referral for a brain injury to see a neurologist or a psychologist, you should take that diagnosis extremely seriously and seek treatment as soon as possible.
If your doctor has administered to you a test called the Glasgow coma scale or has diagnosed you with a concussion – extra care should be taken to make sure you are healing properly and not suffering further problems associated with a head injury.
Signs of traumatic brain injury include memory loss, headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, an inability to recall the events underlying the injury, and inappropriate emotional responses.
One of the very typical and overlooked signs of a TBI is a person simply misplacing their car keys and then flying into a disjointed and atypical mood.
If you or a loved one are struggling with mood swings or other symptoms, you should contact your physician or neurologist as soon as possible.
Traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising and tearing in the tissue of the brain that can lead to a host of consequences, including cognitive impairment, behavioral changes, chronic headaches, confusion, and more. We have handled dozens of TBI cases ranging from the minor and temporary memory loss to permanent loss of function requiring day to day help. A person suffering from a TBI needs to be evaluated as soon as possible by a neurologist and a neuropsychologist.

We have seen TBI cases resulting from workplace accidents, electrocution cases, minor car wrecks, serious car wrecks and a variety other types of cases.
