It’s that time of year. School is back in session and football games are being played on fields across the country. Because of that, this is also the time of year that emergency rooms will see an increase in the number of young people brought in with head injuries…

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, which can include concussions, is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. The impact on a person or his or her family can be devastating.

While it can be difficult to determine how many people actually suffer from TBI, the number is much larger than most people think. The CDC estimates that 1.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from TBI each year.

Attorney David Klibaner of the Klibaner Law Firm in Denver… a personal injury lawyer with an expertise in cases involving traumatic brain injuries… says TBI is very often misdiagnosed by doctors. He says:

“The tests done in hospitals often miss the signs of a brain injury, and the symptoms, ranging, for example, from concentration problems, difficulty focusing on work, to fatigue, balance problems and noise sensitivity, are often thought to be caused by pain or psychological issues when they are actually the result of a traumatic brain injury.”

When it comes to sports injuries in young people, it can be even harder to diagnose, since the young person and possibly coaches and maybe even parents might not take all necessary steps in treatment.

For some people, symptoms of TBI are immediate… for others, they can be delayed… and the effects of TBI can be significant.

If you think you or a loved one might be suffering from TBI and not getting proper treatment… contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Start your search at AskTheLawyers.com.
