We are here to offer patient legal guidance and reassurance during the difficult recovery process.
Recognizing Signs & Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Identifying traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can be very difficult. Physicians specializing in brain injuries often classify traumatic brain injuries as mild TBIs and concussion, moderate TBIs, and severe TBIs, with a significant differentiation between mild TBIs and moderate and severe TBIs.
How physicians classify traumatic brain injuries depend on a number of identified factors. Physicians then treat patients according to their diagnosis, classification, and symptoms. Legally, how the treating or examining specialists classify the injury often affects the value of many claims as the type and severity of symptoms differ depending on the severity of the brain injury. There is a growing appreciation in society and the insurance industry of the depth and far reaching consequences of TBIs and concussions on an injured person’s quality of life. If you or someone you know has been in an accident, you don't have to go it alone.
