Missouri & Illinois Brain Injury Lawyer
Representing the Legal Rights of TBI Victims
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates1 that approximately 1.7 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury either as an isolated injury or in conjunction with another injury. Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, occur when a blow or jolt to the head injures the brain in such a way as to cause a disruption in normal brain function. When these injuries are the result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence, victims may be able to recover for their injuries by filing a personal injury claim. The assistance of an attorney can significantly increase your chances of successfully asserting a legal claim based on a personal injury, so it is important for victims to retain legal counsel as soon as they can.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries can occur in any accident that involves trauma to the head. Some of the most common include the following:
The complications associated with a traumatic brain injury vary in severity in proportion to the severity of the initial injury. For example, mild concussions are the most common form of TBI2, and are often self-resolving with little medical intervention. On the other hand, TBIs that involve a foreign object penetrating the skull require intensive medical care and can often result in serious cognitive or physical disabilities. As a result, it is important that anyone who suspects that they have sustained a TBI seek medical attention immediately.
