2019 Traumatic Brain Injury Update

By |2019-04-24T18:00:11+00:00February 14th, 2019|Brain Injury|

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) continues to be a leading cause of disability in the U.S.  Historically, this condition has been overlooked by the medical profession.  As a result, there has been little research on the subject and no real medical breakthroughs in treatment.  As a brain injury lawyer, I face two heartbreaking consequences of this [...]

Developments in the Diagnosis of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

By |2019-04-24T18:00:11+00:00August 20th, 2018|Brain Injury|

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases can be extremely challenging due to the lack of objective testing to prove the existence of common types of brain damage.  Brain damage is often microscopic such that it can only be shown by a pathologist on autopsy, particularly in cases of mild TBI.  Nonetheless, mild TBI can have a [...]

Proving ALL of the Damages Caused by Brain Injury

As an Ohio brain injury lawyer, I routinely review medical journals for information about traumatic brain injury (TBI).  Two recent medical journal articles address the damages caused by brain injury.  To an attorney, the term “damages” refers to the harms and losses caused by personal injury or wrongful death.  Damages include past harms and losses [...]

Severe Traumatic Brain Injury

By |2019-04-24T18:00:10+00:00October 11th, 2016|Brain Injury|

Severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) is less common than milder forms of the injury, so it gets less attention in the medical literature and in the courtroom.  Because the physical signs of severe TBI are more concrete and more objective, it is more difficult for insurance companies and defense lawyers to attribute the symptoms of [...]

March is National Brain Injury Awareness Month

By |2019-04-24T18:00:06+00:00March 17th, 2015|Brain Injury|

As an experienced brain injury attorney, I would like to take time to recognize National Brain Injury Awareness Month: http://www.biausa.org/brain-injury-awareness-month.htm.  It remains as daunting an area of law as ever.  The challenges that I face, together with my clients, seem to grow each year. I have been handling traumatic brain injury cases for about 20 years.  In recent years, new [...]

Progression of Brain Injury

By |2019-04-24T18:00:02+00:00January 30th, 2013|Brain Injury|

The journal Brain is reporting that brain injury is a progressive condition that worsens over time.  This is a significant finding for victims of traumatic brain injury (TBI).  Prior to this study, it was felt that brain injuries worsen with time based on anecdotal evidence, but no study existed that allowed physicians to opine that an individual's cognitive disability [...]

Report on a Recent Study About Brain Injury

By |2019-03-18T22:02:44+00:00December 17th, 2012|Brain Injury|

A recent study published in Brain reports that repetitive mild traumatic brain injury can have major long-term consequences.  The study looked at athletes and military personnel who had sustained repeated hits to the head over time. 80% were found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a progressive condition whose symptoms can include memory loss, depression and dementia.  There is no [...]

Tinnitus Following Motor Vehicle Accidents

By |2019-03-18T22:02:44+00:00December 12th, 2012|Car Accident|

Motor vehicle accidents are a source of many common personal injuries.  Occasionally, however, we are confronted with more exotic injuries.  Tinnitus is one such injury.  Tinnitus, or "ringing in the ears," occurs every so often as a result of trauma sustained in a car accident.  We have spent much time investigating this rare injury, and have [...]

Ohio Moves to Protect Children with Brain Injuries

By |2016-06-11T15:20:47+00:00December 6th, 2012|Brain Injury|

The Ohio Senate passed legislation on Tuesday designed to protect children who sustain a concussion during a sporting event.  The legislation was proposed by Akron's Childrens Hospital and other medical groups in response to increasing awareness about the potentially serious long-term effects of concussions and post-concussion syndrome.  The legislation contains an eduction component aimed at [...]

Depression After Brain Injury

By |2019-03-18T22:03:13+00:00March 30th, 2012|Brain Injury|

Understanding brain injury is critical for Ohio lawyers representing victims of medical malpractice or motor vehicle accidents that result in stroke or traumatic brain injury.  Often the client and client's family members are aware that the injury victim "acts differently" since the injury, but cannot fully explain the difference.  We often hear from family members that the injured party [...]
