Traumatic Brain Injury

8.7William Michael Kilgore

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can be a very serious injury as the result of an accident.  Unfortunately, many times it goes undetected and is undiagnosed for a very long time after the accident occurs.  If your head comes into contact with anything during an accident – the windshield, steering wheel, etc. – be sure to get treated immediately – don’t wait!

According to the Center for Disease Control, motor vehicle crashes were the 3rd overall leading cause of traumatic brain injury in 2013.  (

Symptoms of TBI include:

  • Headache
  • Memory loss
  • Forgetting words or speech
  • Difficulty with normal activities
  • Confusion
  • Changes in mood

If you are noticing any symptoms at all out of the ordinary, it is essential to have a doctor examine you immediately.  Delay could not only cause you additional health problems, but also could significantly damage your legal claim.

Traumatic Brain Injury can be very expensive to treat, requiring multiple expensive tests, and a long treatment plan.  If yours is the result of an accident, it is important to document everything as quickly as possible after the accident.  This is why the police should be called immediately once an accident occurs, and in many cases, an ambulance. Even if symptoms or injuries are not immediately apparent, they could manifest quickly after the accident and it is important not to let any time pass once the symptoms are apparent.  

With only two years to file suit from the date of the accident, it is important to not delay in treating your symptoms.  Two years may seem long, but it is actually very short, considering how long it takes to treat injuries and attempt settlement prior to costly litigation.  Attorney Kilgore believes settlement should be attempted, but filing suit shortly thereafter is appropriate if a favorable agreement is not reached.
