Traumatic Brain Injury in Minneapolis, Minnesota

When your brain is injured by a sudden impact to your head, the consequences can be catastrophic and irreversible. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) often results in permanent physical, mental and emotional damage.

The symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be immediate or develop slowly and may include seizures, persistent vomiting, debilitating headache, blurred vision, amnesia, paralysis, personality changes and even death. Victims of a traumatic brain injury often need a lifetime of constant medical care and treatment if they survive the injury.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), half of all traumatic brain injuries result from traffic accidents. Whiplash, a sudden distortion of the neck most commonly seen in car accidents, can cause a traumatic brain injury. Other incidents that can cause traumatic brain injuries are falls, swimming and diving accidents, construction site accidents and criminal assaults.

When a traumatic brain injury occurs due to someone else's negligence or willful actions, the traumatic brain injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm have the experience and knowledge to understand and present medical issues and the legal skills to represent our clients interests effectively and successfully.
