Working as a personal injury attorney requires quite a few skills, including strong powers of persuasion and negotiation. Attorneys working in this highly competitive area of law often decide to focus on certain kinds of injuries or cases. This allows them to accumulate knowledge about the medical, social and mental impact of various injuries. Over time, that knowledge can translate into greater success and larger settlements for clients.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are some of the most debilitating and serious injuries people can sustain. There are a host of ways that people can end up with brain injuries, including car accidents, slip-and-fall incidents and even assault and battery.

A lot of research and knowledge goes into a personal injury case involving a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These injuries can impact many different aspects of a victims' lives, from their ability to work their job to memory, personality and overall mood. Many times, the psychological impact of a TBI can be profound.
