To help you get a better understanding of what you are up against, let’s discuss traumatic brain injuries in some detail.

What are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are serious injuries that require focused and thorough medical attention. If such an injury occurs at the workplace or is work-related in any form, you will also need legal attention to protect your rights.

Brain Injury Statistics

According to estimates, about 1.5 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each year. These traumatic brain injuries can range from mild to severe.

What are ‘subjective symptoms’?

Many people, including attorneys, and believe it or not, some doctors, don’t fully understand traumatic brain injuries. Because a myriad of conditions can lie under the surface, many of the symptoms are considered “subjective”. This leads to insurance company doctors and sometimes neurologists claiming the traumatic brain injury victim has “recovered”.

This can present a dangerous situation where victims aren’t getting the ongoing care they need. Yes, TBI can largely result in “subjective” symptoms but they need to be addressed. Neuropsychological testing is critical to documenting the constellation of symptoms and this testing gives the objectivity needed in a court setting. This testing can last up to two days, and while it may not necessarily speak to causation (i.e., what caused the limitations), it will often verify in an objective way the limitations experienced by the traumatic brain injury victim.

Common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury

Some common symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury include headaches, confusion, balance issues, trouble focusing, nausea or vomiting, memory problems, hypersensitivity to lights and noise, etc.

Brain Injury Symptoms

Having represented many traumatic brain injury victims, the one that stands out the most for us is headaches. Our brain is who we are and how we function. Suffering from headaches on a constant basis can absolutely stop someone in their tracks. And, of course, a headache cannot be seen. It won’t show up on a scan.

This can be overwhelmingly frustrating for someone suffering from chronic symptoms as other people may become cynical or doubt the existence or severity of the headaches. Co-workers, family, or friends may look at a TBI victim and think they look fine.

“They got dressed and looked nice and they can speak and respond, so what’s the problem?”

The truth is that the victim of the traumatic brain injury frequently has many horrendous symptoms that cause frustration and depression. Trouble thinking clearly, headaches, confusion, less stamina, and other problems that won’t be obvious to others right away, are usually the most prevalent hindrances in the victim’s life.

Recovery from a brain injury is a long process

Recovery from brain injury can span days to years. There isn’t much that can be done from a medical standpoint to reverse the initial brain damage, but getting treatment quickly can help stabilize the brain injury victim and prevent further damage.

Fighting a work-related traumatic brain injury case

"I recently had a work related injury and was receiving Workers' Compensation (medical benefits only). Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

"Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care.

Without a doubt YOU are the best!!!

"Without a doubt YOU are the best!!! Every person who is in the horrible position of being injured at work should have someone as kind, compassionate and knowledgeable as you on their side. You never once made me feel like I was one of a hundred other clients. I always knew you had my back! You answered calls and emails at all hours. You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
