Billings Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

Any accident, no matter how minor, can result in a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Traumatic brain injuries not only cause physical pain — financial injuries can also result. Accident victims are often forced to miss work while treating their injuries. Lost wages and medical expenses can make it a struggle to keep up with the daily costs of living. When brain injuries are severe, victims may be left permanently disabled, no longer able to maintain employment.

At Billings-based Towe, Ball, Mackey, Sommerfeld & Turner, PLLP, our lawyers help individuals throughout eastern Montana recover the compensation they need to pay for medical treatments and pay their bills while recovering from their traumatic brain injuries.

Brain Injuries Can Have Serious Lifelong Consequences

If injuries have left our clients permanently disabled, we will pursue compensation that reimburses clients for their lost earning potential and the costs of lifelong medical treatment. Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a fall or bump or blow to the head.

Traumatic brain injuries range from mild to severe. A concussion, where an impact to the head causes the brain to function abnormally, is considered a mild traumatic brain injury. There are two categories of severe TBI, closed and open or penetrating. A closed TBI occurs when a blow or impact to the head injures the brain without breaking or fracturing the skull. An open or penetrating brain injury involves a head injury that fractures or breaks — and penetrates — the skull or scalp.

Traumatic brain injuries can result from car or truck accidents, slip-and-falls, work-related accidents and oil field accidents. Common TBI symptoms include:

  • Dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Headaches
  • Memory issues
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Blurred Vision
