Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer
At The Joel Bieber Firm, we see many clients coming to us with undiagnosed problems of traumatic brain injury, often referred to as TBI – our experienced traumatic brain injury lawyers have a wealth of experience helping people that have suffered a TBI.
According to the Brain Injury Association of America, someone suffers a traumatic brain injury every twenty one seconds. The annual cost of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is estimated to exceed over 35 billion dollars. Sometimes, the emergency technician at the scene, may reference some form of “hitting head” or loss of consciousness. However, as emergency technicians they are trained to treat visible, life-threatening injuries and also to get the patient transferred to the hospital. Thus, from the very beginning, a brain injury may go undiagnosed.
When hiring an attorney to represent someone who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, is it necessary that the attorney have specialized knowledge of brain injuries?
Yes. The attorney you hire should have specialized knowledge and experience in the field of neurolaw and in representing people with acquired traumatic brain injury. Just as a person with a brain injury would not be treated by a general medical practitioner, he or she should not be represented by a lawyer who is a general legal practitioner. The tools for diagnosis and treatment are even specialized and an understanding of the mechanism of the injury, as well as the medicine is important.
