TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY LAWYERS
"It is estimated that over 1.5 million people a year experience traumatic brain injuries that are largely caused by accidents involving automobiles and falls. Only 85% of these people make a recovery, leaving 15% who do not. This is due in part to the fact that recognition of brain trauma is difficult to diagnose and symptoms do not always appear immediately following the accident. Our process in handling traumatic brain injury cases involves an exhaustive medical history search for anything that could be deemed a pre-existing condition. We want to isolate any conditions that may make the new trauma worse, and we also need to know exactly what we're dealing with so we can proceed properly with your unique situation. We are on the national forefront of law firms handling these kinds of cases, representing people and families with traumatic brain injuries. We have the experience, the knowledge, the patience, and the determination to provide you with the best legal representation available." ~ Robert Karns, Attorney dealing specifically with Traumatic Brain Injury representation.
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY & CATASTROPHIC PERSONAL INJURY
Traumatic brain injury is unlike any other form of bodily injury. When you damage a limb or other body part, you may be assured that it will heal in a certain way. The brain does not heal in the same way that other body parts do, and no two brain injuries will progress or heal in the same way. The healing process from a brain injury is vastly unique to any other kind of healing. It is simply impossible to determine at the onset of a catastrophic injury what the outcome may be.

CAUSES OF TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
One of the main problems with traumatic brain injuries is that you may not even know you have sustained one, particularly as one can exist without bleeding or a loss of consciousness. Many TBI victims thought they only sustained minor head injuries until the brain injury symptoms started to become more prevelant. Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney Robert Karns can help you in determining whether an injury exists, and if so, the best course of action for you to take regarding treatment and any claim for compensation.
Some of the causes of traumatic brain injury are:
- head trauma or injury resulting from an automobile accident
- motorcycle crash
- slip and fall
- other violent head-related trauma
- medical mistakes/malpractice involving oxygen deprivation to the brain
- chemical and toxin contaminants that cause injury to neurons
- and other kinds of even minor injuries
Brain injuries fall into two categories, mild and severe. Both categories however, can present with similar symptoms. The fact that symptoms of traumatic brain injury can take weeks to appear, makes this form of injury one of the most difficult to diagnose and treat. The people who are in the highest risk group for sustaining a traumatic brain injury are the elderly and the very young - though this by no means implies that this is the only group that is susceptible to head trauma.
Head injuries in the elderly are most often caused by falls, with TBI's from automobile and motorcycle accidents comprising the next largest group, followed by assault, sports injuries, and injuries from involvement with dangerous pastimes or careers. In the very young, Shaken Baby Syndrome comprises the majority of head trauma, though falls and assault also occur. After any head trauma, it is not enough to simply seek medical attention, you must pay attention to your body and seek immediate medical attention if you notice any of these symptoms developing at any time:
- loss of vision or memory
- loss of consciousness
- coordination difficulties
- extreme emotional distress
- speech and sleep problems

WHY HIRE KARNS LAW?
Among Attorney Karns' startling case results are clients ranging in age from 3 years old to over 70 years old who have all sustained TBI injuries, and have received compensation in amounts from hundred of thousands of dollars to over a million in settlements. This does not mean that your case will merit these kinds of settlements, but you certainly owe it to yourself and your loved ones to consult with Attorney Robert Karns immediately if you have a case involving a catastrophic injury or traumatic brain injury.
Like all catastrophic personal injuries, TBI brings severe personal physical trauma, together with increasing financial burden to both the victim and caregivers or family members. Because of the nature of head injuries, more than any other kind of case, time is of the utmost importance. Injuries can appear later, while treatment for other less severe personal injuries is ongoing. As a catastrophic injury attorney with 38 years of focused legal representation experience in all fields of personal injury, but specifically in the area of traumatic brain injury Robert Karns can provide you with all of the assistance you need to help alleviate your legal and financial burdens, and give you the time and energy you need to help your loved one through the process of healing.
It is imperative that you hire an attorney who recognizes that sometimes the fast track to a small settlement is not the best course of action. Even if you only show one symptom of possible head trauma, or only had a mild injury to start with, head injuries are notorious for showing up further in the recovery process. Robert Karns can provide you with the right representation to factor every possibility into your injury recovery.
