Consult an Experienced Lawyer About Your Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injury is a blow, jolt or penetrating injury to the head that disrupts brain function. The severity can be mild (a brief change in consciousness or mental status) or severe, which can include amnesia, coma or unconsciousness for an extended period of time.

If you have suffered a blow to the head or an incident typically associated with a serious chance of brain injury, it is imperative that you seek medical treatment right away.

The medical consequences of a brain injury are not always readily apparent; proper medical treatment and consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer are vital to protecting your rights.
