Investigation of a Coma, TBI, Head Trauma accident can be very important to the outcome of the personal injury claims. A timely investigation and documentation of the available evidence related to the case is often critical. Photos and videos of relevant conditions, the scene, the damages to any vehicles or equipment involved, the activities which were being carried on in the area of the accident, the damages to the scene where the injuries and damages were sustained, and the injuries themselves will often prove invaluable in proving up an accident claim. Whether the claim is made pre-suit and the presentation is being made to a claims adjuster and an insurance company, or the case has been filed and the proof must be made to a judge or a jury – the availability and quality of the evidence collected will often be key.

Obviously Severe and Moderate Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) cases can have a huge impact on the life of the injured. But it turns out that Mild TBI can often cause major impacts as well. The fact that a TBI is classified as mild in some cases may not match the severe impact that the injuries have on the injured person’s ongoing activities, emotional stability, mental function, relationships and life. Such injuries should be taken seriously from the inception and the best available medical treatment should be pursued promptly (often including cognitive therapy and rehabilitation).
Generally, cases involving brain injuries and Coma, TBI or Head Trauma may include a number of different legal doctrines.
