Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

In recent years, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), including concussions, have gained increased recognition in the medical and legal communities. TBIs have many severe, long-lasting side effects such as memory or concentration problems, slurred speech, seizures, weakness or numbness of the extremities, loss of coordination, light, temperature and odor sensitivities, and impairment of hearing, vision and balance. Although any type of trauma to the head can lead to traumatic brain injuries, more than 50 percent of TBIs are caused by falls and motor vehicle accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Accidents and falls commonly harm:

  • Truck drivers
  • Construction workers
  • Bus drivers
  • Delivery drivers
  • Utility workers
  • Taxi cab drivers

Falls that lead to traumatic brain injuries are especially prevalent in the construction industry, and often involve workers falling from:

  • Ladders
  • Scaffolds
  • Scissors, boom or mast lifts
  • Poorly maintained stairways
  • Elevated work areas without guard rails

Attorney Gerald Bosch has handled many cases involving these and other causes of traumatic brain injuries. As such, he has the experience necessary to help in any work-related traumatic brain injury situation.
