What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is usually caused by a violent blow to the head or body. This can happen due to another person’s negligence, after using a defective product, or during a car accident, fall, or sports injury. Mild cases are usually temporary, but moderate to severe brain injury can result in long-lasting or permanent damage with devastating symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
Traumatic brain injuries are not always easy to identify. Every traumatic brain injury, along with its symptoms, is unique. In order to determine if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, consult a doctor. Some common symptoms include:
- loss of consciousness
- memory loss
- loss of balance
- impaired language skills
- lost sense of smell/taste
- tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
- intolerance to light
Unfortunately, a TBI can severely impact an individual’s life. In addition to physical injuries, an individual may experience high medical expenses, lost wages, and a diminished quality of life.
Types of TBI Treatment
There are a few types of ways to treat the effects of a traumatic brain injury. While some TBIs may only require rest and over-the-counter medication to relieve a headache, other treatment options are available for severe cases. Some doctors may prescribe medications to help relieve anxiety, reduce the risk of seizure, and decrease pressure inside the brain. Other treatment options involve rehabilitation. An individual may need to see a psychiatrist, occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist, neuropsychologist, and vocational counselor.

True Story: Suffering a TBI While on the Job
“Ruth” was an employee at a large machinery shop. One day, Ruth was utilizing a lift to work high above the shop floor. While up on the lift, one of Ruth’s coworkers used a remote control to open the shop’s industrial garage door. Rather than stop upon contacting the lift, as it should have if properly installed, the garage door continued upward with such force that the entire lift was knocked over. In the fall, Ruth suffered a serious TBI leaving her severely and permanently disabled. Ruth and her family retained GoldenbergLaw, and we investigated the situation and initiated a lawsuit. We retained experts from across the country and engaged in significant discovery regarding the installation of the garage door. Through the efforts of GoldenbergLaw, a substantial settlement was reached for Ruth and her family.
