Head Injury Attorney
Unfortunately, most automobile accidents result in some form of bodily injury, whether serious or minor. Even when an individual is properly restrained and all safety features are performing, severe injuries can still occur. Head injuries are also very common in sporting accidents as well as slip and falls.
Recovering from any type of head or brain injury is an extremely difficult process and it is important that the individuals responsible for causing your accident are brought to justice for their actions.
Protected by your skull, the brain remains susceptible to many types of trauma. Traumatic Brain Injury “TBI” can be a devastating personal injury as a result of physical trauma to the head, neck and brain by a blow or strike, shaking, a bump or penetration that disrupts normal brain function.
Common accidents that cause head injuries are:
- Skull Fracture
- Diffuse Axonal Injury
Non-violent incidents can also cause brain trauma, such as drug overdose or chemical poisoning. The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that 1.9 million children and adults in the U.S. sustain a TBI each year, and currently more than 3.5 million children and adults in the U.S. live with a lifelong disability because of TBI.

- Spinning Sensation
