Closed Head Brain Injury Cases Can Be Tough To Prove - Only Use An Experienced Lawyer

About 500,000 people suffer from closed head brain injury, also known as traumatic brain injury or (TBI), every year in the United States, according to the National Head Injury Foundation. Other sources report far higher numbers. In this type of injury, the skull remains intact.

Injuries to the head are the cause of instant death for 25% of all traumatic injuries. Of all head injury patients who are rushed to the emergency department, 15% are dead upon arrival or shortly thereafter. Those who receive a severe head injury have a mortality rate up to 50%. The survivors are likely to suffer permanent injuries, including a vegetative state. Permanent disability in those who survive such injuries is very high.

Some 35% of closed head brain injuries are due to falls, particularly for children up to four years old and adults over 75, in addition to auto accidents, violent acts, and sports injuries. Teenagers and young people are most often involved in motor vehicle injuries, especially when alcohol is used. Blast-related head trauma has surfaced with the return of many U.S. veterans from warring countries or regions.

The most common closed head brain injuries are:

- concussion: causes a temporary halt to normal brain function; about half of
the cases due to sports activities

- cerebral contusion: local bruise to the brain

- intracranial hematoma: ruptured blood vessel that forms blood pool around the
brain (subdural hematoma) or between the skull and brain (epidural hematoma),
causing increased pressure that needs instant medical attention

- diffuse axonal injury: damage to brain tissues, often the result of auto
accidents; sometimes causing permanent damage or vegetative state

Despite the number of injuries and deaths resulting from head brain trauma, proving closed head injury cases and getting restitution can be difficult. Many people with such injuries appear to be physically and mentally well; in other words, they walk and talk just like anyone else. Juries sometimes regard such cases with a skeptical eye.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
