Traumatic Brain Injury

Shaffer & Gaier‘s traumatic brain injury attorneys in Philadelphia and New Jersey handle a variety of situations, commonly auto accidents, where brain injuries are more prevalent. A traumatic brain injury generally results from a forceful blow to the head. Depending on the major point of impact, it can affect a person’s physical, psychological, and cognitive skills, resulting in a loss of fine motor skills, balance, or coordination. He or she could also have trouble communicating, processing information, or remembering things. In traumatic brain injury cases, there is usually widespread damage because the brain ricochets inside the skull during the impact of an accident. As a result, a person’s psychological status is usually altered as well. Even in mild brain injury cases, where a person seems only to suffer loss of consciousness or memory at the time of the accident, there may be long-term effects in which the individual can experience changes in cognition and personality.
