Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a delayed consequence of a serious accident. A car or truck accident victim may walk away from the wreckage without a visible wound. Hours, days, or weeks later, friends and family may begin to notice subtle or substantial differences in a person’s ability to function normally. The hidden cause behind these changes is often a closed head injury — a delayed result from the accident.
At Kahn Gordon Timko & Rodriques P.C., in New York City, we represent individuals and families whose lives have been affected by traumatic brain injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic injury as the result of an accident, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
Helping You Recognize the Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
Our brain function defines us. Not only do brains control physical function, but they also hold the keys to our personality. Once damaged, brains do not recover easily. A traumatic brain injury victim may someday return to “normal”, but it is likely his or her life will never be the same.
Although no two traumatic brain injuries are alike, some common identifiers include:
- Loss of consciousness for any period of time
- Loss of memory either before or after the incident
- Feelings of confusion or disorientation
- Numbness or tingling sensations
- Loss of balance or loss of muscle control
- Sensory loss involving hearing, vision, sense of smell, or taste
