Boston Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
In the United States, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) affect an estimated 1.4 million people a year. A brain injury is characterized by a blow to the head that can disrupt the normal function of the brain. While the severity of a brain injury can range from a mild concussion to coma or even death, all victims of brain injuries should be examined by medical personnel and treat the situation extremely seriously. In the United States, it is estimated at least 5.3 million people live with the permanent negative consequences resulting from a brain injury.
Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBIs can result from:
- Car Accidents
- Slip and Falls
- Workplace Injuries
- Sports Injuries
- Medical Malpractice
- Physical Assault and Battery

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
A TBI can result in short and long-term memory problems. In addition, an injury to the brain can result in severe anxiety, depression, balance problems, vomiting and nausea, personality changes, headaches, inability to concentrate, and more. Many victims report losing consciousness for a period after their injury and some actually fall all the way into a coma.
Treatment of brain injuries can include long hospital stays and in-patient care, extensive rehabilitation, or surgical intervention to relieve pressure in the skull. Certainly this extensive medical care does not come without cost. If you, or a loved one, have been the victim of a TBI, you will need an aggressive attorney who can recover you money for medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
