Approximately 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Such injuries can range from mild concussions to serious contusions or diffuse axonal injuries.
The second leading cause of TBIs across America is motor vehicle accidents, which include car, truck and motorcycle wrecks. Car wrecks also account for the largest percentage of brain injury-related deaths.
At the Kentucky law firm of T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law, we fight for full and fair compensation for those who have suffered brain injuries as a result of someone else's wrongdoing. T.J. is a trial lawyer who has more than 20 years of experience. He has handled catastrophic injury cases of all kinds and recovered multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for clients.
"To be a successful personal injury lawyer, you've got to actually care. You've got to be competitive. I roll up my sleeves and get into court." — Attorney T.J. Smith
A Brain Injury Can Be Disguised As Mere Whiplash
Just because you don't see brain bleed on a CT scan doesn't automatically mean that you don't have a brain injury. Our law firm has proved multiple brain injuries over the years when most people would only think the victim had whiplash.
T.J. can talk to your friends and family and others who know you well. He also knows the right tests for you to take and the type of psychological evaluation necessary to prove whether or not you have a brain injury.
T.J. and our legal team have handled many cases like this with great success. To learn more, get a free initial consultation about your potential case. Simply call T.J.
