What You Should Know About Traumatic Brain Injuries Suffered In An Accident
Accidents can cause a wide range of injuries. While some injuries are immediately obvious, others are not. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are sometimes not apparent until symptoms start to surface in the days or weeks after the accident. If you have suffered a TBI in an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence, you or your family member should assert all of your rights available in order to seek monetary damages and an award for any harms and losses incurred.

Rosen, P.C., has the knowledge, compassion and experience needed to help seriously injured clients with all aspects of a TBI case so victims can focus on healing, rehabilitation and recovery.
