Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury, commonly known as TBI, occurs when an external force traumatically injures the brain.
TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, or a penetrating head injury that disrupts normal brain function. There are varying degrees of TBI, ranging from mild to severe.
Early detection of these symptoms and access to benefits through your insurer is critical in making sure you receive proper and prompt treatment. At Strype Injury Law, we have access to neurological testing, neuropsychologists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists and psychologists to provide our clients with the resources they need to manage their injury.
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBS):
These injuries can be personality-changing, often resulting in an inability for victims to go back to work in the short term and, sometimes, permanently. In addition to pursing accident benefits or a tort claim, we will work with you to obtain disability insurance benefits and work with our medical team to make sure you are provided with the treatments you need.
Our lawyers fight for timely access to these services by working with the treating professionals and clearly document the impact these injuries have on our clients and their families.
TBI is one of the most undetected and uncompensated injuries. The symptoms of head trauma are often subtle and can include:
- Personality changes
- Short-term memory loss
- Vision problems
- Loss of sense of smell
- Lack of judgment
