One of the most catastrophic injuries is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.4 million people in the U.S. suffer from traumatic brain injury each year. Our brain cannot regenerate its cells just like most body tissues. Once brain cells suffer damage, the way we move, think, speak, and live our lives changes forever.

Citrin, P.C. s committed to helping you recover your entitled financial compensation to pay for past and future medical costs, lost income and earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering. Attorney Citrin understands how TBI can permanently affect the lives of our clients and their families, which is why she will legally do whatever it takes to ensure you are taken care of for the rest of your life.
What is a TBI?
TBI occurs when a person gets struck by an object or strikes an object or suffers a violent and sudden jolt. Such direct trauma to the brain causes significant damage which prevents it from functioning in a normal capacity, negatively affecting the way an individual thinks, communicates, experiences senses, and controls his/her emotions.
While some people can make a full recovery from TBI, others could never regain their normal brain functions. The latter may need ongoing treatment and care, as well as accommodations to help them perform basic living tasks.
The following are common symptoms of moderate to severe TBI:
- Seizures and convulsions
- Repeated vomiting and nausea
- Dilation of pupils
- Numbness or weakness
- Sleeping difficulties
- Memory issues
- Concentration issues
- Depression and anxiety
- Slurred speech
- Drastic mood swings
- Unusual behavior
Common causes of TBI include car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, falls from heights, and falling objects. If you sustained TBI due to one of these causes and it involves negligence, you may be eligible to recover monetary damages through a personal injury lawsuit.
