Why Do You Need A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer?

Why Do You Need A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer?If you get involved in some kind of automobile accident and you know the other person is at fault, there may be injuries involved, such as a head injury. After some diagnosis, you may find that what you’ve actually sustained is not just some impact damage to your head, but a far more serious traumatic brain injury. At this point, you know that you’ve got to take some legal action against the person who inflicted this injury on you or your loved one.

But once you know that you need to take legal action, isn’t a lawyer enough? A traumatic brain injury is still just an injury, so even if you did need more specialized legal experience, a personal injury lawyer would be sufficient wouldn’t it?

The Complexities Of TBI

While it is true that a traumatic brain injury would still be filed as a personal injury lawsuit in court, the similarities end there. Typical injuries such as damage to limbs or other organs are relatively straightforward in their effects. If a car injury, for example, results in the amputation of a leg, the nature of the injury and the long term consequences going forward are well understood.

Traumatic brain injuries, by their very nature, may be far more complicated and ambiguous, which is why it’s better to get a TBI lawyer that has experience with these cases. An impact to the skull may heal in time, but TBI itself can have effects that are permanent, or, in some cases, may even get worse over time.

The fact of the matter is that the brain is still one of the most mysterious organs in the human body to medical science. And while most of its basic functions are understood, the exact mechanics behind many higher functions are still being studied even today. This means that TBI itself can be very difficult to understand and document by even by doctors if they are not experienced in this field, and the symptoms displayed by some forms of TBI can even be misdiagnosed by well-meaning doctors that lack the experience to truly understand what’s going on.

Your TBI Lawyer Understands

Make no mistake, a TBI lawyer is not a medically trained professional, and cannot and will not make a diagnosis or give medical advice. What a TBI lawyer can do for you, specifically, is give you the experience of years of working with other TBI victims, seeing the symptoms they deal with, and understand the specific medical and financial needs these victims have. TBI lawyers may even have contacts with specialists in medicine, that can quickly eliminate other possibilities and get to the real root of your TBI problems, because they have seen—and treated—so many of these cases.

A TBI lawyer understands that TBI itself is “unreliable.” Some forms of TBI actually come and go; you may experience days where you feel fine, only to experience other days with impaired thinking or motor control or any number of other symptoms. This requires a special kind of understanding of both your needs and the law. A TBI lawyer provides both.


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.
