Brain Injury Cases Present Unique Challenges

“Traumatic brain injury” describes an injury that occurs when an outside force impacts the skull and damages the brain, whether or not the skull is broken open. These injuries are common and can result from automobile accidents, construction accidents, falls, bicycle accidents and any other incident involving trauma to the head. Traumatic brain injuries also encompass post-traumatic stress disorders.

Lacking an injury visible to the human eye, it is often difficult for a jury to sympathize with a person suffering from a brain injury or to understand the impact that the injury has had on that person’s life. In order to fairly consider the case, a jury needs to fully understand an injury that it cannot see. A person who has an acquired brain injury may seem fine to the casual observer while, in fact, he or she may suffer from short-term memory loss, have emotional or personality changes, or have inability to think logically or do simple math.
