Concussions and Mild TBIs

Need Legal Help after a Concussion? Call John Bales Attorneys.

A concussion is the most common type of traumatic brain injury (TBI). Unlike more severe brain injuries that can leave victims with serious physical and mental disabilities, concussions initially may have more mild symptoms. In fact, if you have suffered a concussion, you may not realize the extent of your injuries for days or weeks after the accident.

The brain injury lawyers at John Bales Attorneys know that concussions—or mild TBIs (MTBI)—may seem harmless at first, but the complications and side effects that may develop can become serious and even life threatening. If you suffered a concussion due to someone else’s careless actions, we want to help you get the compensation you need to recover.
