Traumatic Brain Injuries

When Tragedy Strikes

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) often occur as the result of a motor vehicle accident. They can cause victims to lapse into a coma and suffer from functional deficits, and can, in some cases, be fatal. If your TBI, or that of a loved one, is attributable to someone’s negligence, Attorney Snow, an experienced trial attorney can help you and your family secure compensation and recover from this tragedy.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic brain injuries are often difficult to detect immediately after a motor vehicle accident occurs. It can take weeks, even months, for a victim to show any symptoms. Because of this, victims may not realize that their mental, emotional or physical state has been compromised.

Common symptoms of TBI include:

  • Dilated/unequal pupils
  • Loss of motor skills
  • Weakness in limbs
  • Altered vision, hearing or smell
  • Slurred speech
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue    Cognitive deficits
  • Memory loss
  • Changes in mood/behavior
  • Chronic headaches
  • Seizures
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness

Expert Help in Dealing with Insurance Companies

Insurance companies will often try to settle cases involving serious motor vehicle accidents as quickly as possible. While it may appear that they’re doing this to help you and your family, you should know that they may have ulterior motives. Insurance companies are aware that a family may be in need of money quickly to help care for the victim and pay medical expenses. But the reality is that, because a TBI may not be diagnosed until weeks or months after an accident, they are offering an expeditious settlement to protect themselves from compensating your for any problems which may arise in the future.

The Law Offices of Steven T. Snow doesn’t work for the insurance companies. They work for you and your family. Attorney Steven Snow recommends that you not accept an initial settlement offer until you know the full extent of your injuries. By going to follow-up appointments and undergoing appropriate diagnostic testing, your physician will be able to recognize and treat a TBI, and determine if you may suffer any lasting effects as a result of the accident.
