The most common cause of brain injury is blunt force trauma to the head. Unforeseen incidents such as a car accident, slip and fall, motorcycle or bicycle accident – anything where you may have suddenly hit your head with force may cause brain injury.
Because there can be a delay in recognizing brain trauma, it may be years before you are aware of the injury. This is one of the many reasons why it is imperative to get immediate and proper medical treatment.
People with moderate to severe injury to the brain can experience issues sustaining attention, concentrating on tasks and remembering newly learned material. They may think, speak and solve problems slowly and become easily confused. Blurred vision, problems with balance, dizziness, vertigo and ringing in the ears are other possible effects of traumatic brain injury.

The short answer, is that brain injury litigation is quite difficult, as claims can be quite hard to prove, requiring extensive investigation and litigation skills. Studies consistently show that brain injury claims represented by a reputable, skilled brain injury attorney receive much higher compensation than those who choose to either represent themselves, or hire unproven attorneys with questionable experience and questionable skill in handling complex brain injury claims.
That’s why the insurance company will attempt to get you to agree to and sign a settlement release as quickly as possible, before you can hire a good personal injury attorney to represent your best interests. They know an experienced injury attorney will ensure you are compensated fairly, instead of for pennies on the dollar.
