WHAT IS A TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (TBI) AND HOW DOES IT EFFECT MY PERSONAL INJURY CASE?

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a common injury with different levels in severity that can have profound effects on a personal injury case. Vehicle accidents, falls, and pedestrian collisions can cause a TBI with serious consequences.  It is a common misconception that a TBI requires significant blunt force head trauma.  However, a TBI can be produced from as little as an abrupt movement of the head where the brain makes contact with the interior of the skull.

As common as they are, it takes medical consultation and examination from highly specialized medical professionals to properly diagnose and properly treat a TBI.  Often times, TBIs go undiagnosed and a personal injury case concludes without the funds for treatment and pain and suffering to compensate a victim of a TBI for their extensive damages.

The attorneys at Kalfayan Merjanian are well versed in the mechanisms of injury that lead to TBIs and extensive experience in finding ways to cover medical expenses and costs associated with treating them.  If you have been injured and think you may be suffering from a brain injury, the team at Kalfayan Merjanian has the knowledge, experience and resources to obtain a recovery to compensate you for past and future medical expenses, loss of earnings and pain and suffering.

Common Signs of a TBI include:

  • Headache
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Impaired of motor coordination
  • Loss of balance
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Blurred vision
  • Tired eyes
  • Ringing in ears
  • Bad taste in mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Behavior changes
  • Memory loss
  • Irritability
  • Loss of consciousness (but not required)

A brain injury can be a serious diagnosis requiring extensive and expensive treatment.  Often times, a TBI can require a number of MRI studies and CT scans and treatment with neurologists, psychiatrists, behavioral therapists, speech therapists, and physical therapist to address psychological and motor impairment.  As such, the cost to treat TBIs can be extensive.  An experienced personal injury attorney understands the large costs associated with TBI diagnosis and treatment and will work to ensure that all medical expenses are covered.  However, the tangible costs of treatment are only part of the equation to recovery as the pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life are also significant parts to ensuring adequate compensation.  At Kalfayan Merjanian we work alongside medical professionals and life care planners to properly assess the future costs of treatment.  Furthermore, we get to know our clients and their families to fully understand how their injuries have changed their lives.  With that complete picture, we aggressively pursue responsible parties and obtain a recovery that makes victims of TBIs whole.
