Because every head injury is serious.
If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury or work accident that affected the brain or spine, you need answers to your medical and legal questions as soon as possible.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Medical professionals define TBI as brain damage suffered because of a sudden physical force or impact. Concussions are considered brain injuries.
It is a common misconception that TBI only occurs at the time of an accident. If there is bleeding in the brain or other brain damage, TBI can worsen, or become more apparent over time. Symptoms can range from mild, like from a concussion, to severe limitations of cognitive function. Because TBI usually cannot be reversed, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention.
