What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?

Joseph A. Nagy, an experienced Edmonton traumatic brain injury lawyer, can help prove insurable damages from a traumatic brain injury by making available the expertise of scientific, medical, and other personal injury experts.

Causes of a TBI

A traumatic brain injury can be caused by a rapid acceleration/deceleration force (such as in a motor vehicle accident). 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.

Severity of a TBI

A term like “mild, moderate or severe” is often used to describe traumatic brain injury. The severity of a 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.
A moderate or severe traumatic brain injury commonly involves 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.

I tried to prevent a thief from stealing my welding truck and was run over by the truck. I had severe orthopedic injuries to my ankles, back, and feet and corrective surgery. I was wheelchair bound for several months after my hospitalization. Joe helped me get disability benefits from my insurance company to ease my financial burden while I was unable to work.

The insurance company told me that the accident was my fault because I tried to stop a thief from stealing my vehicle. I hired Joe. Then the insurance company said I would be partly at fault. Joe wouldn’t tolerate it. Joe explained that since my vehicle was not moving and in gear when I tried to stop the driver, that a Judge would likely believe my side of the case. After fighting the case with two lawyers, we took my case before a Judge and he agreed.

The insurance company only wanted to pay me $50,000 for my loss of ability to earn future income and they would not budge. After hearing Joe argue my case the Judge recommended $175,000 and the insurance company agreed to pay up. The medical, vocational, and economic loss experts on Joe’s team assisted me in getting proper compensation for my pain and suffering, past income loss, and other future medical expenses. Joe never gave up. I honestly felt that he really enjoyed fighting my case for me every step of the way. He didn’t let me down.

You can put your faith and trust in Joe. He’s a good lawyer and a good person.
