Traumatic Brain Injuries and Truck Accidents

Victims of commercial truck accidents often suffer serious injuries. One of the most vulnerable parts of the body is the brain, which can easily suffer damage in a truck accident. Many truck accident victims suffer from traumatic brain injuries, or TBI. TBI can occur when a victim hits their head on something or even if the brain simply shakes violently inside the skull. If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury in a truck accident because a truck driver was negligent, you deserve to be compensated for all of your injury-related losses and an experienced truck accident attorney can help.

The following is a list of common symptoms following brain injury:
