Unlike those scenes you see in television drama series, it takes more than a bump on the head to cause a serious traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to a personal injury attorney based in Los Angeles, both the legal and medical definitions of TBI makes such a claim actually harder to prove in court.
These definitions are so precise for a reason: So many plaintiffs try to claim such an injury because of its enormous monetary reward. Even out-of-court settlement amounts are hard to sneeze at. So, it’s entirely up to the client’s personal injury lawyer to determine if such an argument is plausible for his or her client.
The Main Cause of TBI
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines TBI as a head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The actual cause may be from a heavy bump, blow, or jolt to the head, but not every bump, blow or jolt can result in TBI. The severity of a TBI injury can range from mild to severe. A common example of a TBI is a mild concussion, often caused by contact sports.
