Slip and falls, motor vehicle accidents, workplace incidents and more can all cause these serious injuries, which can cause serious physical and emotional repercussions for the victim.

Common Misconceptions Regarding TBI
Brain injuries such as concussions, skull fractures and brain hemorrhages, are less frequent than many other injury types, resulting in some common misunderstandings or unknowns. At Sullivan Law, we have helped countless clients recover compensation for their brain injuries. We can provide the information you need and dispel some TBI myths such as:
- MYTH: You have to receive a blow to the head to sustain a TBI. In some cases, traumatic brain injury can be present even if you do not have a visible head injury. Things like whiplash in a car accident can cause symptoms as well. It is important to be treated by a doctor immediately after an accident to identify possible indications of TBI.
- MYTH: Medical testing can provide precise results for every TBI incident. While MRIs and other medical tests can sometimes record the extent of your injuries and inform your recovery efforts, they are not 100 percent foolproof. Insurance companies may try to use lack of positive test results to convince you to settle for a small sum of money early on in your recovery. Do not accept without first consulting an attorney. Your recovery may be much more extensive than anticipated.
- MYTH: Mild brain injury is not serious. In some cases, an accident will result in mild brain injury, sometimes called mild TBI. Contrary to the name, this is not a mild injury at all. Though it may be comparatively better than severe TBI, it can still cause issues for you, and should be seriously considered when seeking compensation.
