What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

Proving insurable damages from a brain injury may require the expertise of scientific, medical, and other personal injury experts that Joseph A. Nagy can make available for your case.

A rapid acceleration/deceleration force (such as in a motor vehicle accident) or a strike to the head may cause a brain injury without a skull fracture. Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) range in severity from mild to catastrophic.

The terms “mild, moderate and severe” are often used to describe TBI. The severity of TBI is typically classified based on combinations of:

  • duration of unconsciousness
  • the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score; GCS measures eye opening, verbal response, and motor response
  • duration of post-traumatic amnesia
  • and sometimes, the results of neuroimaging.

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI). Some symptoms of MTBI include:

  • memory loss
  • poor concentration
  • seizures
  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • anxiety
  • insomnia
  • irritability
  • fatigue.


Post-concussion syndrome is the term used to describe these symptoms. Moderate and severe TBI’s commonly involve a skull fracture and surgical intervention. Many individuals with severe TBI’s have persistent functional disabilities and temporary or prolonged neuropsychological or neuropsychiatric problems. Some of these include:

  • personality disorder
  • depression
  • motor impairments
  • speech impairments
  • sexual dysfunction.

Advice on Traumatic Brain Injuries

I work with top-notch scientific, medical, and other personal injury experts to prove damages from your brain injury.

I specialize in motor vehicle accident injuries, from car accidents and truck accidents to motorcycle accidents and bicycle accidents.

Contact me, Joseph A. Nagy, to discuss what steps I recommend to ensure the full extent of your brain injury is properly diagnosed. It is not uncommon that people with a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI) fail to recognize their symptoms. A severe TBI will require referrals to one or more of the many medical experts on my team, such as a neuropsychologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, or neurosurgeon.

Joseph A. Nagy
Injury Lawyer

Dedicated, Efficient, Hard Working, Honest, Compassionate – these are just some of the words I would use to decribe Joe Nagy. I was involved in two MVAs and my case just wasn’t proceeding. However, by luck it was passed on to Mr. Nagy and I could not have had better representation. He worked extremely hard and got results. He did for me what my two previous lawyers couldn’t seem to do. Joe and his amazing assistant Nicole were always available if I had questions and kept me well informed. I felt like my case was a priority. I was recently trying to write a thank you note to Joe and realized I could not find the words to adequately express my gratitude – not only for the settlement I received but for his kindness and compassion during the most difficult years of my life. Having to endure multiple medical visits and living with pain every day took a toll on me. Joe is incredibly knowledgeable and having him on my side allowed me to focus on my health. My confidence in his ability never waivered. He also has a sense of integrity that I truly appreciate. My only regret is that I did not have Joe as my lawyer from the beginning. Thank you Joe and Nicole. You both saw me as a person and I cannot tell you what that meant to me. I will forever be grateful.
