Protecting Clients’ Rights For Over 30 Years

You Deserve Compensation For Your Traumatic Brain Injury

What at first may appear to be a minor headache or inability to concentrate may be something much more serious: a traumatic brain injury. The brain is very complicated and not completely understood by doctors who treat victims. Many catastrophic injuries to the brain are not easily diagnosed. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is generally caused by a blow to the head or sudden impact.

A TBI can even result without a direct blow or impact to the head. Shaken baby syndrome is an example of when there is no impact on the head, but the baby’s brain is seriously injured. In a car accident, a person can sustain a TBI if there is rapid acceleration or deceleration or if the car spins rapidly or rolls over even if the head is not directly impacted.

If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI due to the carelessness or wrongdoing of someone else, a Fargo personal injury lawyer may be able to help. I can help you recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and your pain and suffering. With over 30 years of experience, clients throughout North Dakota and Minnesota trust me to help them win the compensation they deserve.

Symptoms Of A Brain Injury

It is estimated that 1.5 million people in the United States suffer a TBI every year. Some of the symptoms of a TBI include behavioral, cognitive and communicative dysfunction. A TBI can result in significant life changes including the inability to work and personality changes. In serious cases of TBI, a person is rendered incapable of caring for themselves on a daily basis.

Symptoms of TBI can have varying degrees of severity:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Memory problems
  • Concentration problems
  • Slurred speech
  • Loss of motor skills
  • Loss of Consciousness
  • Seizures

A TBI is generally diagnosed and treated by a neurologist, neurosurgeon and/or neuropsychologist. If you suspect that you may have any form of brain injury following an accident, I urge you to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
