What is a traumatic brain injury?
By definition, anyone who suffers the loss of consciousness has sustained a traumatic brain injury. However, traumatic brain injury victims will not necessarily lose consciousness after their accident. In fact, we frequently work with clients who sustained brain injuries despite the fact they did not even hit their head in the accident.
The accepted definition of a mild traumatic brain injury, as developed by the Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Committee of the Head Injury Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, includes:
- Any period in which consciousness is lost
- Any loss of memory regarding the events immediately before or after an accident
- Any alteration in the victim’s mental state at the time of an accident
- Any focal neurological deficit(s) that may or may not be transient
Our attorneys know that it is frequently difficult to diagnose a mild traumatic brain injury, even though the injury may be significant enough to disrupt an individual’s entire life. Though a proper diagnosis will be more critical to obtaining proper treatment, it will also be a key element of your claim.
In many cases, doctors to fail to diagnose traumatic brain injuries after serious accidents involving brain trauma. Proving the extent of a brain injury and the impact it will have on your life is an important matter that shouldn’t be trusted to an inexperienced law firm.
