Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is caused by an external or internal injury to the brain. This includes blunt trauma to the brain, as well as exposure to certain toxic substances which can cause serious, debilitating injury to the brain. Nearly 2 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury each year in the United States. Of these, nearly one-third are left with critical and permanent impairments.
A brain injury can occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents, falls, violence, sports injuries, and child abuse. Victims of traumatic brain injuries can suffer cognitive problems, speech impediments, hearing loss, taste failure, lack of balance, problems with sight, and physical mobility dysfunctions. The after-effects of traumatic brain injury can be complicated for the victim and loved ones both financially and emotionally. Most traumatic brain injuries are preventable and occur because of someone else’s carelessness, recklessness, or negligence.

My experience with Michael was remarkable. I was injured in a car accident, overwhelmed by my symptoms and inundated by paperwork. While I was trying to make a difficult decision related to surgery, Michael negotiated the highest settlement available under the law.
Having represented numerous traumatic brain injury matters, the Olivio Law Firm, PLLC has seen cases where the traumatic brain injury was undiagnosed by emergency room staff on the date of the accident, as well as primary care physicians who see the patient in the days or weeks following the accident.
We believe that the failure to diagnose a traumatic brain injury is widespread for various reasons. That is why it is important to be represented by an attorney who understands the causes and symptoms of traumatic brain injury, as well as having experience in handling cases with clients who have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of an accident.
