Highly Experienced In Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
Increased media coverage of the risk of brain injuries in football, hockey and other sports has made the general public more aware of the life-changing nature of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1.7 million Americans suffer a brain injury each year.
Brain injuries range from mild to severe. TBIs occur when there is sudden or repetitive damage to the brain. They can occur when an object penetrates the skull and damages a part of the brain (an open head injury) or by a blow to the head (a closed head injury), such as when someone’s head strikes an object inside a vehicle during an accident. Brain injuries result from falls, motor vehicle accidents, sports and violent assaults.

A Knowledgeable Advocate For All Types Of Brain Injuries
Although Americans are more aware of brain injuries than ever before, lawsuits involving TBIs are among the most challenging to present. The legal team at Vukelich Law Firm, PLLC, in Duluth, has extensive training on how to effectively present medical information regarding TBIs in court. We work with neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and other highly regarded medical professionals who can effectively summarize how a TBI can impact all aspects of person’s life.
Often, a person who suffers a brain injury is not immediately aware of it. Symptoms such as dizziness, nausea and forgetfulness may occur hours, days or even weeks after an accident. Also, while a cut or a broken bone heals, a brain injury often lingers and does not get better.
