No one ever leaves the house in the morning for work or school thinking that they will sustain a major injury. However, it does happen – an icy sidewalk that has not been properly salted, a slick hallway missing any “wet floor” signs, or a traumatic car accident are all instances where someone can get hurt and end up with a head injury. Depending on the extent of the injury, you could face symptoms ranging in severity from migraines to memory loss.
At Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP, we handle all personal injury matters, including head injury claims, on a contingency basis, meaning that we will only charge attorney fees if we recover compensation for your injuries.

How Do You Choose a Good Personal Injury Lawyer After Sustaining a Head Injury?
If your loved one has suffered a closed head injury or traumatic brain injury because of the careless or negligent actions of another person, you need an experienced head injury lawyer to help you recover damages for all your losses. Your family member may not be able to work and may need long-term medical care due to memory loss or, in very severe cases, loss of mobility in certain or all parts of the body. Rehabilitation or physical therapy may be necessary for years, or for life. You may never again be able to enjoy the life you had before the injury.

Effective Counsel When You Have Suffered a Head Injury
Head injuries can be deceiving. What seems like a minor injury can lie dormant for days, weeks, or months and then suddenly become serious. What starts out as a headache can turn into convulsions or seizures, with vomiting or nausea, slurred speech, weakness or numbness in joints or extremities, loss of coordination or motor control, or an inability to wake.
For this reason, it is imperative after a head injury that you seek medical attention immediately and even schedule follow-up appointments with your primary care physician. Any change in symptoms after the accident, however minor you think they may be, should be reported to your doctor. We have seen far too often minor head injuries that become major when patients fail to report changes or new symptoms. Being completely up-front and transparent with your medical providers can be the difference between getting better and going to sleep and never waking.
Rehab for traumatic brain injuries is usually performed in a hospital but can also be done at home. After a TBI, you may be able to remain in the comfort of your home and receive rehabilitation care for a number of reasons, such as to improve your physical functions both inside and outside the home and even to provide support in both emotional and social capacities so that you can ingratiate yourself back into your community, your family, and the life you had before the accident. Rehab for TBI’s is also a preventative measure to ensure you are not affected by medical issues caused by the head injury like sickness, bowel or urinary trouble, pain, loss of mobility, and muscle weakness.
What Are the Most Common Types of Head Injuries?
Though some people can walk away from a fall or a car accident with only minor head injuries, others are not so lucky. The most common types of head injuries we see in our firm since they are the ones that people often seek medical compensation are as follows:
