Indianapolis Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers
WE ARE YOUR LEGAL ADVOCATES FOR RECOVERY AFTER A TBI IN INDIANA
All brain injuries are considered serious, but a traumatic injury to the brain denotes long-term or lasting effects that reduce the overall quality of one’s life, whether the victim or their immediate family. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 138 people fall victim to traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s), every day. Sadly, they also report that roughly 30% of all injury-related deaths in the country are due to TBI accidents. For those who survive a brain injury in Indiana, their lives, and the lives of their families, are forever changed. Brain injury victims generally experience permanent, life-long consequences, such as cognitive disabilities, mental anguish, depression, anxiety, paranoia, loss of consortium (intimacy), loss of companionship, damaged emotional control, damaged motor control, loss of ability to work or perform same work duties, and much more. To make matters worse, the ability to cover costs for all the essential treatment and rehabilitation needed after a severe brain injury largely depends on how much injured victims can collect in damages from the negligent party’s insurance. For this reason and more, traumatic brain injury victims require aggressive and skilled legal representation. If you or a loved one is suffering from a severe brain injury in Indiana, retain a qualified and experienced Indianapolis personal injury lawyer for help recovering the full and fair compensation you deserve.

UNDERSTANDING TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES WILL HELP MAINTAIN CONTROL OF YOUR CLAIM
Just because your brain is protected by your skull does not mean it is not easily vulnerable to injury. As you can surmise from the CDC figures mentioned above, brain injuries are unfortunately very common, in both women and men, and people of all ages. In fact, because falls are among the leading cause of brain injuries, it is indicated that children under the age of 4 years old are most likely to suffer one. A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occurs as a result of a forceful impact to the head. Moderate to high impacts can be enough to cause the skull to fracture or break open, potentially ending in severe injuries to both the bone and the brain. Although lower impact incidents do not usually break the skull, they do cause the brain to shift around inside of it, making it come into contact with the hard bone, and consequently, damaging the sensitive tissue. There are different types of brain injuries, but the most common are contusions, concussions, brain penetrations, and diffuse axonal injuries.
Contusions are spots of bleeding in the brain. This injury typically requires brain surgery. A coup-contrecoup refers to a contusion on both sides of the brain, which tends to result from the brain shifting a second time, and come into contact with the other side of the skull.
