A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a head injury that interferes with how the brain functions. This head trauma usually results from a violent jolt or blow to the body or head.
Often catastrophic, TBIs are a leading cause of disability in the U.S. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 2.8 million Americans report TBIs every year. Alarmingly, about 56,000 people die from this type of head injury.
A traumatic brain injury may take significant physical, financial, and psychological tolls on a victim. If you or someone you care about has sustained a TBI due to another party’s fault, you should know that you may be eligible for compensation that can help you cope with the injury’s aftermath.
At Nix Patterson, our brain injury lawyers have immense experience representing injured victims and winning complex cases involving TBIs. Over the past four decades, our legal team has fought for the interests of injured victims. We are here to help you and your family if you have sustained brain damage or other injuries due to someone else’s negligence.
TBI is a major cause of disability and death in the U.S. There are roughly 176 TBI-related deaths recorded every day.
There are many reasons why TBIs happen all across the U.S., with falls accounting for nearly half of all hospitalization cases. Other causes of traumatic brain injuries include:
Regardless of how your TBI or head injury occurs, Nix Patterson is ready to represent you throughout the process. Our catastrophic injury lawyers will look into the facts of your case free of charge to determine whether a drunk driver, a negligent employer, or any other third party’s reckless actions led to your TBI. If they did, you may have a claim for compensation.
The effects of a brain injury depend on the severity of the trauma as well as where the trauma occurred in the brain. If this injury is left untreated or is severe, you may experience long-term medical problems. Some of the most common long-term effects of TBIs include:
If your head trauma leaves you with a lifelong medical issue, you may require physical therapy. Ongoing treatment may last for months, years, or even the rest of your life. This could result in thousands or even millions of dollars in medical expenses. If your TBI was someone else’s fault, you should not be left holding the bag.

Factors like liability, insurance policy limits, and the extent and severity of the injury may affect the compensation you’re able to receive after sustaining a TBI.
Some of the damages your TBI lawyer will seek on your behalf include:

Nix Patterson won’t collect any upfront fees until we win your brain injury case. We collect attorney fees only when you win your case. This is called a contingency fee, and it works like a commission. This means that you don’t have to worry about paying any legal costs out of your own pocket. Nix Patterson will advance all the costs of working on your case and will require reimbursement for those costs if we win a settlement or verdict for you. This allows you to take advantage of experienced legal representation without paying a dime out of pocket.
