If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI or a concussion, you or your loved one should seek medical help as soon as possible. If the TBI or concussion was caused by someone's fault, you or your loved one should also seek a lawyer to help.
Persons affected with a TBI or a concussion may have serious brain dysfunctions requiring immediate and long-term medical attention and causing long-term personal growth potential and earning capacity losses. Additionally, the symptoms of a TBI may be very subtle and readily identifiable only to the victim and his care providers.
A strike or blow to the head may be serious and require medical attention, which you should seek. This kind of injury may be called a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or cause a concussion, which is a blow to the head with a temporary loss of brain function. A TBI or a concussion can cause a variety of short-term and long-term physical, cognitive, and emotional problems. It may also involve a fracture of the skull.
