Traumatic Brain Injury

 

Some of the most serious accident cases that we handle at Badgley Mullins Turner, PLLC, involve Traumatic Brain Injury – also known as TBI. The brain is a complex system that performs many functions. It processes signals from our five senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell); it allows us to move our bodies as determined by our thoughts; and it performs delberate tasks both simple and complex. The brain also acts independently to regulate our heartbeat, digestion, breathing, and so on. Even more fundamentally, it is the center of emotion and personality. In some cases, a brain-injured client may exhibit little or no loss of cognitive abilities and yet demonstrate subtle but very real losses of brain function.

Not all brain injuries are apparent on MRI’s, PET scans or CT scans. Thus, brain injury cases often require evaluation by well-regarded medical and rehabilitative experts to properly determine the extent of the brain damage and to construct the best long-term treatment plan.

Science and medicine have made great strides in recognizing the long-term harm associated with brain injuries. Concussions received by student and professional athletes finally are receiving the attention they deserve. Much has been learned by studying soldiers returning from tours of duty caught in blasts who may have no external injuries, yet have experienced brain trauma.

All head traumas should be evaluated for traumatic brain injury, especially if the injured person experiences a loss of consciousness, memory loss, changes in mood or personality, or experiences sleep disorder or loss of sensation (particularly touch, sight or sound).

If you have had a diagnosis of traumatic brain injury – or if you believe you may have a traumatic brain injury as a result of a head injury caused by another’s wrongful misconduct – contact us to discuss a no-obligation consultation.
