Durham Brain Injury Attorneys

Representing Victims of TBI - Call (919) 701-8132

Brain injuries can occur from blunt trauma to the head or any condition that limits blood flow and oxygen to the brain. By definition, every case that involves head trauma or brain injury is very serious and carries the risk of devastating physical and mental impairment, long-term disability, or even death.

There may be enormous medical bills for years to come and a huge loss of potential income due to the impairments these injuries cause.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

About half of all serious brain injuries occurring in North Carolina are the result of auto, truck, motorcycle, or other vehicular crashes, but our injury lawyers also represent victims who have suffered head trauma and brain damage from many kinds of events.

These includes:

  • Shaken baby
  • Slips and falls
  • Strangulation
  • Truck accidents
  • Workplace accidents

There are times when medical professionals or hospital caregivers do not follow the accepted practices that would detect conditions that threaten the brain. Failure to investigate, or even a slight delay in investigating symptoms can lead to irreversible brain injury that incapacitates the patient. Our Durham personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in representing victims of anesthesia errors, birth injuries, and surgical mistakes.
