The brain is one of the most important organs in the body. It is responsible for thought, memory, motor function, speech, language, and so much more. If it is damaged, this will impact every aspect of a victim’s life. Personality changes, memory loss, loss of cognitive function, and impaired motor skills are just a few of the side effects of a brain injury. A victim may be facing a lifetime of care.

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a type of brain injury that is caused by:
- A blow to the head
- A sudden impact that causes the brain to collide with the skull
Traumatic brain injuries can occur due to various types of accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Falls from heights
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog attacks
They can also be caused by intentional wrongdoing, such as assaults with firearms, or by high-impact sports such as football. Some can be caused by defective or dangerous consumer products.
