Traumatic Brain Injuries Are Complex and Nuanced
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), especially “mild” TBIs, can be difficult to recognize and diagnose. They can cause a wide range of physical, mental, emotional, or sleep-related symptoms. Sometimes, these symptoms appear right away after an injury to the head (for example, like you might suffer during a car accident); other times, symptoms can take days or weeks to appear.
If you or someone you love has sustained a TBI and another person is at fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages due to missed work, future medical costs, and other losses.
But what if the scans of your brain, such as an MRI or CT scan, come back normal? If you’re facing this situation, the at-fault person’s insurance company may not include the costs associated with your TBI in their settlement offer. Even worse, they might not make a settlement offer at all!
This is why it’s crucial to get help from a knowledgeable, experienced attorney who has successfully handled traumatic brain injury cases before.
Crosley Law Firm: Advocating for Brain Injury Victims
Attorney Tom Crosley and the Crosley Law Firm team have represented many victims who have dealt with traumatic brain injuries and who were initially told that their problems were “all in their head.”
In the video below, Tom Crosley explains why a “normal” MRI doesn’t always mean everything is normal with your brain. In fact, the clinical definition of a mild TBI states that imaging tests may show nothing is wrong.
Tom Crosley has handled many noteworthy personal injury claims that involved victims who showed normal brain scans when they were clearly suffering from the effects of a TBI.
In one such case, Mr. Crosley dug into the latest research on brain injuries. Next, he enlisted the help of a group of medical researchers from the University of California in San Diego who were conducting an unusual brain injury study. These researchers were studying the brains of veterans who had suffered blast-related injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Tom and his client Jerry traveled to San Diego, and doctors used a magnetoencephalography (MEG) machine to scan Jerry, who had suffered a catastrophic injury during a trucking accident. This became crucial evidence in the trial and ended up leading to a major victory for Crosley Law Firm’s client, who was initially told there was nothing wrong with him.
