Traumatic Brain Injury in Birmingham, Alabama

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when a sudden violent blow to the head causes damage to the brain that can range from a mild concussion to coma and death. A traumatic brain injury can also be caused by medical malpractice and negligence due to a physician’s or medical facility’s failure to diagnose or properly treat a medical condition or injury. In addition a traumatic brain injury can be caused during a fall, a car accident, and sports-related or work accidents. Tragically, criminal physical abuse is the number one cause of traumatic brain injury in children.

A traumatic brain injury is often referred to as an invisible injury because at times there are no visible signs of trauma and brain injury symptoms may be subtle and not immediately apparent to the casual observer.

A traumatic brain injury can manifest as memory loss, loss of smell or taste, confusion, headache, blurred vision, impaired judgment, violent behavior, paralysis and other serious physical and emotional disabilities. Over five million Americans live with the long term and permanent disabilities of a traumatic brain injury and need assistance to perform the various tasks involved in daily living.
