Traumatic Brain Injuries

Trau­matic brain injuries can occur in any num­ber of ways, but one thing is cer­tain — dam­age to the brain is often irre­versible. Unfor­tu­nately, more than one mil­lion peo­ple are treated for brain injuries in the United States every year. Whether this type of injury occurs as a result of a motor vehi­cle acci­dent, a truck­ing acci­dent, a farm acci­dent, a fall, a con­struc­tion or work­place injury, or some other cause, the effects are often dev­as­tat­ing for the vic­tims and their families.

If you or some­one you love has suf­fered a brain injury, you may be enti­tled to receive com­pen­sa­tion for the injuries, med­ical costs, lost wages, suf­fer­ing and more. Please con­tact one of the attor­neys at Cline Far­rell Christie Lee & Bell who are expe­ri­enced in han­dling cases involv­ing trau­matic brain injuries for a free case evaluation.

Trau­matic Brain Injuries — Major

Trau­matic brain injuries can be caused by many exter­nal factors—usually involv­ing a major trauma or impact or being shaken violently—but the phys­i­o­log­i­cal effects often include:

  • Dif­fi­culty think­ing, rea­son­ing, and under­stand­ing words
  • Mem­ory loss or problems
  • Short­ened atten­tion span
  • Dimin­ished problem-solving capability
  • Speech impair­ment
  • Sight and/or hear­ing difficulties

Major trau­matic brain injuries, in gen­eral, are not reversible, and the per­son who has suf­fered this type of injury will often suf­fer from the effects of these con­di­tions for the rest of his or her life.

Trau­matic Brain Injuries — Minor

The word “minor” is actu­ally mis­lead­ing when it comes to trau­matic brain injuries, as any harm to the brain is sig­nif­i­cant in nature.  Minor brain injuries tend to have sig­nif­i­cant effects on a per­son, which include the following:

  • Mild and/or mod­er­ate headaches
  • Dizzi­ness or vertigo
  • Nau­sea or vomiting
  • Change in mood
  • Ring­ing in the ears
