I have handled several traumatic brain injury cases (TBI) cases in my career. In a car accident, a person can suffer a TBI even if it is a low speed collision without much property damage.
The brain is injured in these cases from hitting the front of the skull and then the back as the brain is forced forward and then backward at impact. This is known as “coup contre coup.”
TBI’s can manifest in a variety of ways, many of them subtle. These symptoms include headaches, “brain fog” and changes in mood or personality.
Many insurance companies refuse to compensate accident victims for TBI injuries. I fight to get my clients justice for these life-altering injuries.
