Head injuries are devastating and debilitating, and they change the course of victims’ lives forever as well as those of their family.

Head injuries are often the result of auto accidents caused by negligent drivers who get behind the wheel after drinking and/or using drugs, operate their vehicles at excessive speeds, fail to obey traffic signals or operate their vehicles in other reckless and negligent ways. However, it’s important to remember that workplace accidents, slips and falls, construction accidents, incompetent medical professionals, motorcycle accidents and many other kinds of accidents can also cause brain injuries. Head injuries, also called brain injuries or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), can cause the following serious health issues:
- Permanent vegetative states
- Dementia or psychosis
- Cognitive, speech, swallowing, communication, and other types of disorders
- Loss of motor, emotional, visual, sexual, social, or vocational functions
- Many other serious and chronic health conditions that severely diminish quality of life

Even mild head injuries can cause the victim to experience difficulty remembering things, paying attention, processing information, chronic headaches and many other serious conditions. Insurance companies know that in the days following a brain injury, injury victims and their families are understandably very distracted and may sign documents that they do not fully understand. In signing these documents, they can prevent themselves from receiving the compensation they need to pay for ongoing medical care, physical therapy, necessary home modifications, counseling and other injury-related costs.
