Johnson City Brain Injury Lawyers
Representing Victims of Catastrophic Injuries for Decades
Brain injuries often result from trauma, such as an auto accident or a violent blow to the head. They can range from relatively mild traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, to catastrophic injuries that kill or permanently disable. Brain injuries can also occur as a result of failures on the part of medical care. While some brain injuries are unavoidable, others can—and should—be avoided with prompt, careful care and management.
Attorneys handling brain injury cases should have a strong understanding of the difficulties individuals experience as a result of even mild brain injuries. The attorney should be familiar with experts who can assist in explaining these effects, from mild to catastrophic injuries.
The proven Johnson City brain injury attorneys at The Haynes Firm are ready to provide this kind of diligence and ensure that your brain injury claim in compellingly put forth before the law.
The Effects of Brain Injuries
Any type of traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can have serious, long-lasting repercussions for the victim. Additionally, if the victim is disabled as a result of his or her TBI, family members and loved ones will likely need to alter their lives to provide necessary care and support.
Even mild traumatic injuries (sometimes called “concussions”) can cause:
- Memory loss
- Chronic headache
- Visual problems
- Mood changes
If you or a child experiences any of these symptoms after even mild trauma to the head, a physician should be seen without delay.
Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries can cause a wide variety of complications, including:
- Persistent loss of consciousness
- Permanent paralysis
- Sensory losses
- Severe emotional damage
- Speech and communication problems
Compensation for Your Damages
Because the effects of TBIs are often so severe, victims and their loved ones will face a number of physical, emotional, and financial challenges. TBI treatment and recovery often involves extensive medical care, including surgeries and ongoing cognitive/physical rehabilitation therapy. TBI victims may be unable to return to work, often temporarily and, sometimes, permanently.

- Lost income and/or wages
