Tulsa Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is, quite literally, a jarring experience. A TBI can occur whenever you suffer a severe blow to the head, which can, in turn, damage the brain. TBIs are disturbingly common: Each year, nearly two million Americans suffer from some form of severe head injury. More than 50,000 people die nationwide from TBI, and thousands more suffer long-term disability as a result of brain injury.

Causes of TBI
Traumatic brain injuries can result from all sorts of accidents. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a TBI is “caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain.” Any incident that leads to sudden and extreme head trauma is liable to cause TBI, even when the collision does not appear very severe. Even mild TBIs can cause a concussion. More severe TBI can lead to loss of consciousness, permanent brain damage, loss of memory, coma, and a variety of other serious issues.

If You Experience Head Trauma, Act Fast
Even though brain injuries can be extremely serious, they are often hard to identify at first. A sudden bout of dizziness or vertigo can be explained away, or a loss of consciousness at the point of impact forgotten and ignored. Some symptoms may take a few days to manifest. However, if you experience head trauma, it is vital that you see a doctor as soon as possible for testing and diagnosis.
Head trauma can cause potential injuries such as brain bruising or bleeds, the symptoms of which might not appear for several days. Symptoms may seem minor and fleeting. These latent injuries can quickly become much worse if left untreated or ignored.
Moreover, if you delay in seeing a doctor, then a negligent defendant or stingy insurance provider might use the delay against you and reject a claim or reduce the amount owed. They might claim that the delay proves there was no harm at the time of the accident or that the identified injury resulted from other events after the accident at hand. Don’t give defense attorneys and insurance companies any ammunition with which to fight against your proper injury claims. See a doctor, and speak with a dedicated Tulsa traumatic brain injury attorney.
