Pennsylvania Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys Fight for Victims

Attorneys in Media seek fair compensation for life-altering accidents

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a disruption in the brain’s normal function caused by blunt impact to the head or penetration of the skull. It is a common result of auto accidents in which a driver or passenger hit their heads or suffer severe jolts. The personal injury attorneys at The Pagano Law Firm LLC in Media, Pennsylvania are experienced with these catastrophic injuries and their severe consequences for both the victims and their families. We vigorously pursue damages that fully account for the devastating effects of TBI.

Knowledgeable attorneys understand the nature and impact of TBI

A traumatic brain injury can be sustained in any serious fall or other accident in which you strike your head. In an auto accident it can occur when your head hits the steering wheel, dashboard or other hard object. It may also be the result of “whiplash,” an acceleration and deceleration of the head that causes the brain to shake violently or twist inside the skull. That twisting can damage the axons – the delicate fibers that connect neurons (nerve cells) in the brain.

A TBI can reduce your brain’s capabilities, causing a number of cognitive deficits such as:

  • Memory loss
  • Trouble concentrating or paying attention
  • Difficulty communicating, such as slurred speech or inability to remember words
  • Difficulty with thinking
  • Impaired judgment
  • Spatial disorientation
  • Periodic and unexplained loss of consciousness

Other symptoms may be physical, such as:

  • Seizures
  • Muscle weakness
  • Vision and hearing problems
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping or waking up
  • Loss of balance and coordination

TBI can also cause emotional and behavioral problems, such as increased anxiety, depression and mood swings, all of which can have a serious negative effect on your lifestyle and outlook.

Advising accident victims on the health effects of head trauma

In the case of a closed-head injury, where there has been no penetration of the skull, TBI symptoms might not be apparent for days or even weeks after an auto accident or other serious impact. Whenever you suffer a blow to the head, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. At the very least, if you begin having cognitive, physical or other behavioral problems within a few months after the accident, you should see a doctor who can determine whether you have a TBI and assess the extent of your injury through a neurological examination or brain imaging scan.

Vigorously pursuing all available damages for brain injuries

If you have suffered a head injury in an auto accident or other mishap and suspect that it was caused by the fault of another person, you should consult with an attorney who is knowledgeable of and experienced in personal injury law. He or she can determine whether you have a case and, if so, sue the liable parties for your damages, including:

  • Your past and future medical expenses
  • Your pain and suffering
  • Your lost wages and loss of future earning capacity
  • Reimbursement of your out-of-pocket expenses

In Pennsylvania, a TBI suffered in an auto accident is considered a serious injury that allows recovery of damages from the negligent party, though your recovery will be reduced by the percentage of your own fault, if any, for causing the accident.
