Brain Injuries

Brain injuries happen by the thousands in the United States every year. Many people who suffer brain injuries become permanently disabled. The disabilities could be physical, cognitive, behavioral, and/or emotional in nature. The fortunate victims who survive brain injury and are not permanently disabled often require five to ten years of rehabilitation before they can lead normal lives again.

After a brain injury, the brain simply cannot function as it did before the injury. The nerves and neurons may not be able to deliver messages, leaving speech, body movements, and other mental processes compromised. One type of brain injury that can have permanent and devastating effects is a traumatic brain injury.

There are many causes of traumatic brain injuries, however, the most common causes are from an external blow to the head with some type of force. This is typical in automobile wrecks. For example a person may strike their head violently on the inside of a car. Another circumstance involving a car wreck where someone can suffer a traumatic brain injury is due to a sudden decrease in speed. This can cause a person to snap their head back violently causing injury to the brain.

It is often readily apparent when someone has suffered a brain injury. However, sometimes the brain injury may appear initially mild, only to become more significant over time. This is why it is so important to seek legal help immediately. Often times, while the injury seems minor, people will accept small settlements from insurance companies. If this happens the amount of compensation will not be enough to cover future medical costs and long term care. The law firm of Tidwell Strimban has handled many brain injury cases with great results. We will guide you through the complicated legal process, making sure you obtain all the compensation you are entitled under the law to protect your future medical needs.

Highly recommed Tidwell Strimban

In October 2015 my wife was a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in a crosswalk in front of a grocery store. She suffered multiple injuries including a traumatic brain injury from which she has yet to fully recover. We were referred to the Tidwell Strimban law firm after the insurance company made a very small settlement offer. It took over two years to reach a settlement 3 weeks before the case was scheduled to go to court. Robert and Aaron recognized the seriousness of the injuries and were very diligent in pursuing our claim to a satisfactory conclusion. WE would also note that the staff, Donna and Ashley are extremely good at keeping us informed at all times. We do not hesitate to highly recommend them for any personal injury matter.

When I had a question about something his staff was always there. So if you are needing an attorney, Robert Tidwell is the guy to use.
