Closed Head Brain Injuries Are A Different Kind Of Injury Case

Any injury to the head can result in bruising or damage to the tissue of the brain. Though there may be no visible injury to the skull, an injury can still occur. These traumatic brain injuries, often called TBI, can have long-lasting and debilitating effects. Only an attorney with prior experience and successful outcomes in TBI cases should be trusted to provide proper legal advice to those who have sustained this type of injury.

What Is Closed Head Brain Injury?
A closed head brain injury can occur when a blow to the head causes the brain to bounce against the inner walls of the skull. Though there may be no open wound or even a bruise to t he surface of the skin, the brain can still be injured by this bouncing action within the cranium that causes bruising of brain tissue, swelling and bleeding within the skull. Bone fragments can even penetrate the brain tissue, causing severe medical issues. Depending on the direction and extent of the injury, a number of physical effects can occur.

Symptoms of TBI
People who have sustained a closed head injury or traumatic brain injury may experience a variety of troubling symptoms. They may become dizzy, have nausea, vomit, lose consciousness or have headache. Some injuries may cause short term memory loss, visual problems, speech problems, convulsions or behavioral changes. Symptoms may not appear immediately. If brain swelling has occurred, symptoms such as sensory changes, seizures, personality changes or coma can result. Even death can occur from a closed head injury. These symptoms may exhibit days or weeks after the injury has occurred.

Employer Responsibility For Head Injuries
It is the responsibility of the employer to provide medical treatment for anyone injured on the job or in the facility. Legal cases regarding employee injuries can go on for some time. An experienced TBI lawyer will be able to provide the advice and legal help you need to sustain your personal injury case. Small companies often do not have the resources to continue drawn-out legal proceedings and may be willing to settle out of court. Your lawyer can advise you on the best action to protect your interests.

If You Have Suffered A Closed Head Injury
Though you may not think you have suffered a traumatic brain injury from a blow to the head, you should seek medical treatment immediately after any accident of this type, as damage to the brain may not be immediately apparent and cause life changing problems later on. You should also consult a lawyer about your legal rights for fair compensation of medical costs, loss of work and other injury-related expenses.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
