Traumatic Brain Injury 101: Shaked Law Firm's Legal Guide to TBI and Your Rights
When a victim of an accident sustains TBI, the impact to the head causes the brain to move back-and-forth within the skull rapidly. This force is known to case bruising, bleeding, and shearing of the brain in response to sustaining trauma, hence the term “traumatic” brain injury. It’s important to seek immediate medical attention in response to any accident suspected to cause traumatic brain injury.
Even concussions can pose serious, life-threatening outcomes if not treated quickly. After seeking medical attention, families should immediately seek appropriate board certified legal counsel to represent their rights in the event that the victim was injured by another person's negligence or recklessness.
