Full of resources and experience, our Ohio injury lawyers can help ease the pain

Over the years, Elk & Elk has handled its share of Ohio traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases. Such cases are usually examples of severe trauma. But what exactly constitutes a traumatic brain injury, especially one for which a victim would want to speak with an attorney about?

According to the Ohio Coalition for Children with Disabilities, this kind of injury can change how a person acts, thinks and moves. The OCCD writes on its website that the term TBI is used for head injuries that can cause changes in one or more areas such as:

  • Thinking and reasoning

  • Understanding words

  • Remembering things

  • Paying attention

  • Solving problems

  • Thinking abstractly

  • Talking

  • Behaving

  • Walking and other physical activities

  • Seeing and/or hearing

  • Learning

Recent estimates place the number of Americans living with traumatic brain injury at more than 5 million.
