Traumatic Brain Injuries are typically classified in three groups: mild, moderate, and severe.  A traumatic brain injury from a car crash is frightening and challenging

If you or a family member has had head trauma from negligent driving of another, you need an attorney that has experience and ability in these areas.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can affect multiple areas of the brain; and it can cause:

  • impairment of memory
  • vision
  • balance
  • personality changes
  • ability to communicate
  • mobility

When TBI occurs the simptoms may seem minor.  Over time, however, it can lead to permenant disabilites.  A brain injury is not as easy to diagnose as a laceration or a broken bone.

Gioffre & Schroeder are able to help determine if you have a valid claim for relief.  Relief is on the table when it is determined that the injury was caused due to another driver’s negligence.

If you have suffered from a Traumatic Brain Injury you can expect to be compensated for:

Loss of Wages and Potential Wages

You will be missing work if you have a Traumatic Brain Injury.  We will make sure you have a “loss of wages claim” from a medical doctor. If a brain injury occurs and causes you to lose the ability to do your job properly, future income can also be at risk.

Pain & Suffering

Pain and suffering can be much more significant with a TBI.  In broad terms, Pain and suffering is intended to reimburse you for the loss of enjoyment of life, physical pain, or emotional suffering.  TBI can include suffering from Vertigo, constant headaches, and change in personality.

Medical Expenses

From the date of the automobile collision, you should expect to be compensated for all medical bills incurred. After the accident, the other treatments for TBI should also be covered (e.g. psychological therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy).
