Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers Pittsburgh, PA

Allegheny County Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Protecting the Rights of Traumatic Brain Injury Victims

The brain is a complex organ, and essentially controls the functioning of most of the body and, obviously, mind. Because of this, traumatic brain injuries can cause devastating consequences to an accident victim, and can even result in death. Even once a traumatic brain injury patient has recovered physically to the extent possible, ongoing cognitive and behavioral changes can continue to impact every aspect of that person’s daily life. The treatment necessary in traumatic brain injury cases will likely be extensive and also expensive—and may not be fully covered by health insurance.

When the accident that caused the traumatic brain injury was entirely preventable, the experienced personal injury lawyers at Goodrich & Geist, P.C. will fight tirelessly to make sure you receive the maximum amount of financial compensation possible in your case. We can help you understand all of the legal options available in your case so that you are financially protected going forward. Our lawyers have been fighting to get justice for traumatic brain injury victims and their families for over 50 years, and are ready to go to work in protecting your rights today.

Traumatic Brain Injuries Frequently Carry Long-Term Consequences

The brain is an organ that even the most highly trained medical professionals do not completely and fully understand, meaning that the consequences and long-term impact of traumatic brain injuries can also be unpredictable. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by some type of trauma to the head, and the injury may be either open (penetrating) or closed—the severity of which can run the gamut between minor concussions to a life-altering, permanent memory loss and even death. Signs that you may have experienced a traumatic brain injury that requires immediate medical treatment include:

Frequently Asked Questions About Traumatic Brain Injury

FAQ: What steps should an individual take after a traumatic brain injury that is characterized as a concussion?

It is important to contact emergency services immediately after a blow to the head results in a loss of consciousness. Only a trained medical professional can assess the true extent of the injury and determine a proper course of treatment, but for a mild concussion where surgery or a hospital stay is not required, it will be important for the accident victim to rest for a period of time in order to increase the odds of a full recovery. A doctor may also recommend refraining from any alcohol or drug use, as well as refraining from excessive “screen time” and video games.

FAQ: How do I know if I have recovered sufficiently from a concussion so can resume normal activity?

Your doctor will likely require follow-up visits to determine whether your concussion has healed. Some signs that the concussion has not properly healed so that you continue to suffer from post-concussion syndrome, include headaches, dizziness, inability to focus and other cognitive symptoms. The bottom line is that you should generally not resume normal activity after any type of traumatic brain injury until your doctor has confirmed that it is safe to do so.
