Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury is usually the result of a hard blow to the head. The resulting damage will not only affect a victim’s physical health. It will also impact his or her cognitive function, critical thinking, and personality. If your loved one is not able to file a lawsuit, a guardian, spouse, or parent can typically do so on his or her behalf.
