Phoenix Neurological Brain Injury Attorneys
Head wounds are some of the most serious injuries that a person can suffer. Whether sustained in a fall or car accident, a blow to the head brings with it the risk of a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can have lifelong consequences. A TBI can lead to paralysis, difficulties walking or holding objects, and coordination issues. But beyond the physical complications, a TBI can also affect how you think, act, and feel. These neurological issues are just as serious as the physical injuries, and if you were injured by a negligent party, you deserve proper compensation for all the damages you have suffered.
Our legal team has sat down with many victims of TBIs and knows just how serious these injuries are. The costs of treatment and adapting to a neurological injury can be difficult to deal with, which is why we always advocate for the highest possible award for our clients. If you have suffered a head injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, our Phoenix neurological brain injury attorneys can provide the strong legal representation you need in a personal injury claim.

Our brains handle every aspect of our personalities, from how we process information, to our likes and dislikes, and to our mental health. The frontal lobe — the front portion of the brain — handles how we behave and feel emotions. When damaged, it can impact our personalities and lead to serious mental health issues.
A brain injury can cause neurological issues such as:
- Changes in personality
- Mood swings
- Anger and frustration
- Changes in self-esteem
- Impulsivity and lack of self-control
- Impaired self-awareness
- Memory issues
- Poor judgment
- Repetitive behavior
- Difficulties socializing
Even if you think you feel fine after a car accident, slip and fall, or near drowning, it is important to get a medical exam from a doctor as early as possible. Closed head wounds can still include serious damage to the brain and lead to long-term disabilities if not treated early.
Unfortunately, many victims of TBIs are unable to tell if they have had a neurological injury. They may not realize that their personalities have changed or may explain them away as shock or anxiety from the accident. This is why it is important for loved ones to pay attention to accident victims and look out for:
- Changes in personality
- Unexplained anger, frustration, or mood swings
- Sudden withdrawal from social engagements
- Trouble concentrating
- Difficulties controlling the volume of their voice
- Sudden tiredness or fatigue
Dealing with a TBI that causes neurological issues will vary depending on the nature of your wound. A doctor may perform a neurological exam to determine the extent of the damage and diagnose your injuries. If your injury is largely physical, then treating the TBI can help improve your behavior and emotions over time. But it may be difficult for a doctor to determine if your neurological injuries are purely related to the TBI or if they were due to the emotional trauma of the accident, such as PTSD. In either case, a doctor may refer you to a psychiatrist who can suggest therapy and medication to treat your unique situation.
The costs of treating a TBI can be difficult to bear on your own. Emotional and behavioral changes can impact your ability to work right after an accident, and the medical costs of testing and treating your injuries are expensive. If your injuries were caused by a negligent party, then all of these costs should be included in your personal injury claim. The Husband & Wife Law Team can advocate for the full costs of your injuries, including both the financial and personal damages you have suffered.
