Frequently Asked Questions About TBIs

image of various brain scans of a person | traumatic brain injuries frequently asked questionsWhile it is certainly a good thing that most of the millions of car accidents that occur in the United States do not result in serious injury, there are still a significant number of car crashes in which someone suffers a terrible injury, such as traumatic brain injury

These types of injuries often result in lingering effects which can require ongoing medical care for many years, sometimes for life. Dealing with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can quickly become a terrible ordeal; pain and loss of function can be permanent, medical bills mount quickly, and many people lose time at work, or are even forced to stop working altogether. 

There are many common questions that people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury ask: (traumatic brain injuries frequently asked questions)

Q: How soon can I expect to be fully recovered from my TBI?

A: There just isn’t a simple answer to this question. Some people recover from mild TBI, such as mild concussions, fairly quickly. On the other hand, many people suffer permanent disability from a severe TBI. In many cases, there is no good way to predict how long it will take to recover from your injury.

Q: What are some of the side effects of a traumatic brain injury?

A: There are simple symptoms one might assume to see, such as headaches, nausea, and loss of equilibrium. However, the side effects can become much more serious, and sometimes connecting the symptoms to the head injury can be incredibly difficult. Additionally, TBI can lead to more serious issues, including back pain, stomach problems, and depression. These symptoms can add up to a debilitating condition that not only prevents you from making a living, but it can seriously impact your overall quality of life. 

Q: Does a hit to the head always result in a TBI?

A: The brain is fairly resilient, and most of the time, when you hit your head on the mantle, or an open cabinet door, the everyday kind of accident that occurs to us all at one point or another, the brain does just fine. But, it doesn’t take too much force more than that to cause an injury that should be of concern. Your brain is important, so don’t take any chances with it. If you’ve been in an accident and hit your head hard enough that you fear it may cause a problem, seek medical help as soon as possible. And if this accident has been caused by the irresponsible behavior of another person or an organization, speak to an attorney as soon as possible, you may need their help in protecting your legal rights.

An experienced attorney can ensure that your medical care is appropriately covered by insurance. Sometimes this requires negotiating with the insurance company. The most important thing to understand is that you have rights, and the person who caused your injury, who caused your medical bills, and your loss of quality of life, can be held responsible for his or her actions.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
