When someone receives an injury to their head, often the extent to which the brain has been impacted is not immediately clear. In severe cases, it may result in a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the DSM V, some of the most common causes of TBIs include vehicle collisions and slip and falls. A TBI can lead to post concussive symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and confusion. In severe cases, a TBI can lead to amnesia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and seizures. In the United States alone, each year there are more than 1.7 million TBI cases.
If you’ve been in an accident and are experiencing TBI symptoms, contact the Law Office of Brian H. Turner. We’ll work with you throughout your case to ensure you receive compensation for your injuries.
If you’ve suffered a head injury in an accident, you should seek medical treatment immediately. Seeking medical help will allow you receive appropriate treatment for your injuries, and to rule out whether or not you have a TBI. If you have a TBI, some effective ways to receive a diagnosis and treatment include:
- Speech Pathology
- Brain Scans (for example a MRI)
At the Law Office of Brian H. Turner, our experienced attorneys can work with you to ensure you receive the most effective treatment for your injuries. Our attorneys will make sure you have access to the right medical facilities.
Whether you have suffered a head injury from a car collision, a slip and fall, a premises liability incident, or any other type of accident, you may be entitled to compensation if you have a TBI.
TBI symptoms can lead to extensive medical bills. A TBI can affect a person’s performance in school, work, and create mood changes, which can even affect a person’s relationships with their loved ones. If you’ve been in an accident and are suffering from a TBI, our personal injury attorneys will work with you so you can gain compensation for any impact a TBI has had on your well-being.
Below are some of the most common reasons a person may receive compensation for an injury to their brain:

- Impact on daily functioning
