Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain InjuryOver 1 million people annually in the U.S. suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Brain injuries can range from death to coma to post-concussion symptoms, which are relatively mild.

The term "mild" traumatic brain injury is a term used to characterize what are usually closed head injuries where the skull is not opened and the brain penetrated. However, the impact of "mild" brain injury often has a devastating impact on the lives of its victims, shattering relationships, ending careers, and causing distinct changes in personality.

Six Signs Of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

  1. Short-term memory loss
  2. Difficulty concentrating
  3. Severe headache
  4. Changes in speech/vision/taste
  5. Irritability
  6. Personality changes

  • Spastic quadriplegia and loss of cognitive functioning
  • Mild traumatic brain injuries resulting in memory deficits
  • Injuries that caused personality disorders and an inability to be employed in the same trade or profession; loss of ability to function in the workplace

I know how to manage the multiple issues involved in handling brain injury cases, including: medical issues, family issues, and obtaining proper evaluation/treatment of brain-injured clients. I work with medical specialists, neuro-psychologists, neuro-radiologists, nurses and attendant caregivers, rehabilitation centers and life care planners in order to ensure that both the legal rights and the lives of my clients are protected.

Representing Families In Medical Malpractice

I have successfully represented families with newborns injured by trauma at birth (cerebral palsy), children injured as a result of anesthesia malpractice and women who were injured as a result of medical malpractice which occurred during labor and delivery.

Motor Vehicle Accident Representation

More and more cars, bikes and pedestrians are on Hawaii's roadways. Unfortunately this has lead to an increase in accidents. If you have been the victim of a car accident speak with an attorney about your rights. In my over three decades of personal injury work I have helped children and adults injured in motor vehicle accidents as passengers, drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. I can also help you if you have been the victim of a drunk driver.
