Traumatic Brain Injury

Compassionate advocates protecting TBI victims’ rights

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) occur when the brain is damaged during an accident by colliding with your skull and are far more common and dangerous than most believe — the Centers for Disease Control estimate that 1.7 million people suffer a brain injury each year, and that 30.5 percent of all injury-related deaths are from traumatic brain injuries . It is critical you immediately see a doctor if you have suffered a blow to the head so you can receive proper treatment. The symptoms of a TBI may not be evident, or they may be confused with aches and pains that accompany a minor fall or accident. Some easy-to-watch-for signs of a traumatic brain injury are:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Loss of memory
  • Sensory loss
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Lightheadedness
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Poor balance
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Slurred speech
  • Dilated eyes
  • Paralysis or loss of muscle control

You can pursue damages if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident. The attorneys of Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. have extensive experience handling TBI lawsuits in Indiana and Illinois and are here to help you. We investigate the circumstances surrounding your injury to build a solid case on your behalf, work with experts to evaluate the extent of your injury and deal with issues like the cost of rehabilitation or delays in your case due to uncooperative opposing parties. We answer all your questions in a timely matter and do everything possible to resolve your claim as efficiently as possible.

The wide-reaching effects of a traumatic brain injury

Some who suffer TBIs become paralyzed, develop seizures or have limited mobility issues for the rest of their lives, and others are able to move on from an accident physically unscathed. However, individuals who look healthy and are able to function on normal levels may actually experience changes in their personality, a limited ability to absorb and retain information, extreme memory loss, and a host of other problems. These changes impact not just the injured person but also their family members, friends and co-workers. Our lawyers are committed to helping clients obtain compensation for the emotional and psychological damage a person experiences after a TBI, not just the physical effects.
