Medical Malpractice & Traumatic Brain Injuries
Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers Ready to Fight for You
When we visit a hospital, we are placing our health and sometimes our lives
in the hands of professionals with the trust that they will provide us
with the quality care we need. Unfortunately, disorganized, incompetent,
or overworked doctors and
nurses may sometimes make critical errors when treating patients, with the most
egregious mistakes resulting in traumatic brain injuries to patients.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are some of the most serious and life-altering injuries a person can suffer,
resulting in long-term debilitation and sometimes death.

What Are the Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury can be caused by an external blow to the head
or internal complications such as a lack of oxygen to the brain. While
research has shown that the brain has an incredible ability to compensate
for damage, brain tissue does not regenerate over time, making it incredibly
difficult for a person to fully recover from a brain injury. Even minor
damage to the brain can potentially have long-lasting consequences. Complications
due to brain injuries are especially dangerous as they may not be readily
apparent or may have delayed symptoms.
Common symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Uncharacteristic behavioral changes
- Sensitivity to light and sound
- Dizziness and nausea
- Difficulty thinking clearly
- Loss of consciousness
- Chronic headaches
In more serious cases, brain damage can result in coma, convulsions and
seizures, reduced cognitive ability, difficulty communicating, loss of
coordination, or even death. While treatments such as physical therapy,
rehabilitation, and surgery can sometimes help treat TBIs, these forms
of treatment can be prohibitively expensive for the average person. Our
attorneys can help you pursue compensation from those responsible to cover
for your present and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost
wages, pain and suffering, and reduced quality of life.
