Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

Traumatic brain injury lawyers practice in a specialized area of medical malpractice. A brain injury lawyer specializes in TBI (traumatic brain injury) cases and sometimes spinal chord injury cases as well.

A traumatic brain injury lawyer must have a comprehensive understanding of brain injury trauma from the medical perspective as well as the legal perspective.

A traumatic brain injury lawyer is well aware that many trauma survivors do not receive adequate medical treatment since minimal outward manifestations may be evident and most medical practitioners are not well trained in neuro-behavior.

When hiring a traumatic brain injury lawyer to take on a case it is important to make sure your brain injury lawyer has the experience, expertise and financial backing to take on the case. Assuming that the case will be worked on a contingency basis, a brain injury lawyer needs to be able to incur upfront expenses in the range of $20,000 to $75,000 or even more to prepare for trial including fees for all of the expert witnesses that will need to be called.

Some of the experts that a brain injury lawyer may call are neurologists, neuropsychologists, consulting neuropsychologists, rehab physicians, life care planners and vocational planners as well. In addition, it may be required to retain the services of a biomechanical engineer and a PET scan and brain-imaging expert along with other experts in the field of the maturation process of brain injury survivors if the case involves a child.

As far as experience goes, a traumatic brain injury lawyer needs to be a litigation attorney with a good number of trials and positive outcomes under his belt. Being well-published and versed in the literature, active in conferences and a member of various brain injury organizations are other signs that your attorney is an expert in his field. Just because a brain injury lawyer has a ton of experience, does not necessarily mean, though, that this has been a good experience for him. Look for someone who is well-regarded by other attorneys and medical professionals with whom he deals. Also, make sure your brain injury lawyer will be handling the case himself rather than referring it out to another attorney or firm.

A TBI lawyer must know the following brain injury information in order to represent you effectively:

1. A blow to the head is not necessary to receive a brain injury (in cases of whiplash the brain may itself hit the inside of the skull)
2. A person may have a negative MRI, CT Scan or EEG and still have a brain injury
3. A person may be pronounced neurologically sound by the defense doctor
4. The injured person may give different versions of what happened in the accident because of the injury
5. The survivor may be able to continue to work or go to school
6. Nuances of post-concussion syndrome and other effects such as speech or sensory impairments, headaches, paralysis or seizure disorders, cognitive disabilities such as memory deficits or concentration deficits, emotional impairment including mood swings, anxiety, depression, sexual dysfunction, loss of emotional control
7. The differences between Coma, Vegetative State, Persistent Vegetative State, Minimally Responsive State, Akinetic Mutism and Locked-in Syndrome

Once you've made sure your brain injury lawyer has the experience, expertise and financial backing to do an effective job in representation is it time to move forward. Remember that a traumatic brain injury may have long-term affects not anticipated now, so make sure that you're compensated adequately for the long-haul.
