Life-Changing Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
Our law firm pursues maximum value for serious injuries
Accidents can change the course of your life in just a matter of moments. The incident doesn’t have to be big and dramatic to be life-altering.
One of the most substantial and serious injuries you can sustain in an accident is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Accidents like truck wrecks as well as slip and falls can cause TBIs.
The consequences of a TBI can be massive, and they may take a long time to emerge. Do not take a lowball settlement offer from the insurance companies. Contact Hoover Rogers Law, LLP to demand the most money you deserve for your injuries and other losses.
How traumatic brain injuries happen
The leading causes of traumatic brain injury are motor vehicle accidents and slip, trip and falls. Other frequent causes of TBIs are unintentional blunt trauma (getting hit by an object, for example) and assaults.
There are many types of TBIs. Damage associated with TBIs includes:
- Concussion – A concussion is a “mild” traumatic brain injury, but no brain injury is truly minor. Concussions can still cause significant damage, especially cumulatively over multiple incidents.
- Coup-countercoup — This happens when the force of impact knocks the brain against the skull. Damage is caused at the initial point of impact as well as secondary damage where the hit propelled the brain into the skull.
- Skull fracture — Breaking or fracture of the skull bone.
- Contusion and bruises — Discoloration and swelling at the point of impact.
- Hematoma/blood clot — Swelling or mass of blood between the skull and brain or inside the brain itself.
- Laceration — Tearing of brain tissues or blood vessels caused by the forceful rotation of the brain across the skull.
- Nerve damage — Also known as “diffuse axonal injury,” this is the shearing or tearing of the connecting nerve fibers in the brain. This can cause a coma or unconsciousness.
- Secondary damage — These are injuries that develop over time after the initial strike for reasons like infection, hypoxia (oxygen deprivation), or edema (brain swelling).
Long-term TBI damage
TBIs often result in long-term damage that requires a lifetime of treatment. TBIs may affect everyday functions such as:
- Problem solving
- Hand-eye coordination
Brain injuries are expensive to treat and often take a lifetime of medical attention and therapy. This means that it is critical for you to understand exactly how much money you will need to recover and maintain your health after a TBI.
When you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, you are almost certainly owed compensation for the damage.

We demand maximum compensation
TBIs are serious and require ongoing, consistent, and quality care. You didn’t cause the situation, so you shouldn’t have to pay these substantial medical bills.

We can help you understand how the law applies to your situation and an estimate of how much money you will need to get your life back on track and keep it there. We take a hard line in negotiations, and if the insurance company won’t pay up, we are ready to take them to court.
