Getting Help After A Traumatic Brain Injury

The frontal lobe and the temporal lobe are particularly susceptible to injury by trauma. Injuries to these lobes are often associated with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), which can cause subtle or dramatic changes in:

  • Behavior and mood
  • Memory and attention span
  • Cognitive ability
  • Self-awareness
  • Decision-making and reasoning abilities
  • Initiation
  • Intelligence
  • Speech
  • Vision, sense of smell and senses
  • Personality and many other things that make us who we are as human beings

Often, the a TBI victim's family members recognize these changes before anybody else does — even before the personal injury victim notices.

An Effective Personal Injury Attorney To Help You And Your Family

At Barker Wilson Law Firm, we understand traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). We work with the families and loved ones to make sure the injured person gets the medical care he or she needs, from diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation to maintenance care. We work directly with neurologists, family doctors, neuropsychologists, radiologists, rehabilitation specialists, speech therapists, occupational therapists and physical therapists and make sure our clients have access to these professionals.

We know how to prove the existence of this often invisible injury. This is critical because traumatic brain injury often occurs at a microscopic level; sometimes, even advanced imaging technologies cannot detect it. But the family knows it's there, just like the force of gravity and the warmth of love.

We appreciate the depth and breadth of a traumatic brain injury because we have worked closely with several people with this injury. An injury with a potential lifetime of consequences should demand the full attention of the legal team responsible for the case. At Barker Wilson Law Firm, we provide that attention to every case and every client.
