Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) accounts for about 30 percent of all injury deaths every year. The lawyers at Goldberg and Associates, PC deal with many new cases each month and note that with almost every case there are specific needs the victim requires.
A motor vehicle crashes cause 26 percent of all TBI-related deaths and 14 percent of all TBIs.
The prognosis for recovery from a TBI depends on many factors, such as the victim’s age, overall health, and the specific regions of the brain injured.
A serious, non-fatal TBI may require surgery, extensive hospitalization and rehabilitation, as well as on-going medical care.
Even the least serious TBI – a concussion – can cause long-term health problems.
The symptoms of a brain injury may not be noticeable immediately after an impact to the head. An injury that is visible from the outside may not even be present. Brain injury symptoms may not show up for some time after an impact, and they can get worse very quickly.

- Fuzzy short-term memory
- Unusual sense of fatigue
- Nausea and/or dizziness
- Weakness or numbness on one side of the body
