When it comes to injuries, it’s no secret that traumatic brain injuries are among the worst a person can suffer. While some injuries require short-term treatments that lead to a full recovery, traumatic brain injury cases often require ongoing and even lifelong treatments that typically leave the patient handicapped in some way.
Due to the severity of these injuries, it’s important to understand what a traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) case entails, when you have a case, and how to find an attorney who can help you secure the compensation you deserve.
Traumatic Brain Injury Cases – Overview
Traumatic brain injuries usually occur when an outside force impacts one’s head and damages the brain in some way. While some cases, such as concussions, can have mild consequences, others can interrupt a person’s ability to fully use his or her brain, and even result in paralysis, reduced motor function, and reduced quality of life.
Surprisingly, traumatic brain injury cases are very common today. Recent research shows that 153 people die every day from accidents involving a traumatic brain injury. Because these cases are complex, the responsible parties are often not held accountable, and the injured parties and their families are left to deal with large hospital bills and the costs of continuing care. But that doesn’t have to be the case.
Traumatic Brain Injury Cases – The Gold & Gold Approach
When it comes to representing victims in traumatic brain injury cases, there are many concerns an attorney needs to consider.
As a firm with more than 40 years of experience, the team of attorneys at Gold & Gold have developed a unique approach that puts our clients’ needs first.
As we review cases, we include all the necessary experts to ensure we have every angle covered. This allows our attorneys to fully understand the intricacies of each case and the unique injury suffered by each individual client.
While many attorneys focus on the accident itself, we get to know the client, the environment where the injury occurred and any underlying issues that may have contributed to the injury, so we can do what’s in our clients’ best interests.
We always strive to secure the compensation our clients deserve, but we also seek to ensure our clients and their families are treated properly. Throughout the process, we work closely with industry professionals to gain an understanding of the impact the injury will have on our clients’ lives, including the cost of medical bills, current medications, future care, and more. This ensures none of our clients are left on their own after a settlement or verdict, wondering whether they have enough to press forward.
We pride ourselves in not only thinking of the client’s compensation, but also how we can support the lifestyle change that occurs when someone is left with a traumatic brain injury.
It’s about more than winning a case – it’s about taking care of those who’ve entrusted us with their futures, every step of the way.

In another case, we assisted a family in settling a $4.2 million case after a pediatrician’s misdiagnosis led to a brain injury.
