The Psychological Impact Of Brain Injuries

When an individual suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is often easy to see the physical effects of the injury. The person may struggle with some basic tasks and require extensive medical care and rehabilitation to try to recover from the injury.

Most attorneys are well-versed in demonstrating physical injuries, but they overlook the psychological components of traumatic brain injuries. They do not know how to properly evaluate the symptoms and determine the extent of the damage that has been caused by the accident.

At Cohen's Counsel, I serve as a consultant to help attorneys and insurance companies understand the psychological impact of traumatic brain injuries. I am an experienced trial lawyer, having handled both sides of TBI cases in my private practice. Now, I assist others with the comprehensive evaluation and preparation of these cases.

Understanding All Of The Consequences Of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Some of the most common psychological injuries associated with TBIs include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, panic disorders and acute stress disorders. This can mean that the individual experiences significant challenges moving past the event that caused the injuries, making it difficult for them to fully return to health.

Proving or disputing psychological injuries is extremely challenging. You must understand the science behind these conditions and be able to clearly explain how the event in question caused the underlying injuries.

As a practicing attorney, I represented both plaintiffs and defense interests in cases involving psychological injuries, providing me with hands-on experience with these complex matters. I have an in-depth understanding of the law and medicine that is present in these cases, and I am prepared to assist you with any questions and concerns that you may have.

I am a certified specialist in injury and wrongful death law by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization. In addition to my legal training, I have taken many post-doctorate courses in psychology. This has helped me fully understand and evaluate the psychological component of traumatic brain injury cases.
