As a traumatic brain injury lawyer in Worcester MA, I am retained to represent individuals who have sustained brain injury trauma or closed head injury. A traumatic brain injury can simply be defined as an injury to the brain caused by trauma to the head.
Certain traumatic brain injuries are easy to identify. For instance, a fractured skull, a brain bleed, or if an individual is in a coma due to an impact to the head, we can be certain they have suffered a traumatic brain injury or trauma to the brain. However, oftentimes an individual will suffer what is termed a “mild” or “moderate” brain injury (as if trauma to the brain could be considered “mild”) as a result of an automobile or motorcycle accident. The term “mild brain injury” often leads to misconceptions that the symptoms are not serious or that the injury is only temporary. This is a very dangerous error as brain injury symptoms can often increase or intensify as time goes on. Such injuries are often more difficult to identify as they involve subtle problems with emotions, memory, thinking, and concentration among others. In fact the Center for Disease Control identifies a myriad of factors and issues that are often associated with a traumatic brain injury. Obviously, the more factors an individual suffers from the greater the likelihood that he/she clinically presents with an injury to the brain that must be correlated with diagnostic study.
