What are Traumatic Brain Injuries or TBIs?
TBI refers to a variety of brain injuries that can range from a mild concussion to severe brain damage. The CDC describes that traumatic brain injuries can be caused by "caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain." TBIs can have extensive-lasting effects including headaches, memory loss, or even loss of motor function. The CDC also states that automobile accidents are the second leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. The head colliding with the car's steering wheel, dashboard, or even the back of the seat at high enough speeds can cause permanent damage.

Traumatic brain injuries can be extremely hard on the injured and their family who may have to care for them.

If an accident is not your fault you have the right to be compensated for all of these losses including:
- Medical Bills
- Prescription Costs
- Lost wages (both past and future)
- Future in-home care
- Rehabilitation care
- Psychology or Psychiatry services.
