Representing clients who have sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBI), concussions or closed head injuries require an understanding of the trauma to the brain and the effect on the individual. One of the most difficult hurdles to overcome is the normal appearance of the injury victim to those around them. However, individuals who have suffered concussions or brain injuries often face daily symptoms such as memory issues, depression, anxiety, headaches, cognitive impairment, sleep disturbances and other debilitating issues. It is critical to choose an experienced TBI attorney who can prove what caused the brain damage, who understands TBI symptoms and who has the knowledge and ability to prove to a jury or insurance company the damages and losses the client has incurred and will incur as a result of the injury.
