When To Contact A Brain Injury Lawyer


A doctor discussing a traumatic brain injury shown on the X-ray results to a patient.

According to studies, approximately 2.8 million people suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) each year.

Head injuries can have long-term consequences for your health and should be treated as soon as possible. The symptoms of a serious head injury are not always obvious immediately following a fall. Many of the symptoms appear almost immediately after a blow to the head or a severe jolt, but other signs of brain damage can take time to manifest.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a fall, you may be eligible for compensation through a TBI claim. It can be difficult to know what to do after a dangerous fall. We at Schrier Law Group are committed to helping you obtain justice as a brain injury law firm. Your justice is our priority.

When Should I Seek Medical Attention for a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Before anything, you must care for yourself following a fall. You’re probably wondering how to tell if you have a brain injury.

To reiterate, brain injury symptoms are not always immediate, but several indicators depict it is time to seek medical attention. Many people do not seek medical attention until their symptoms become intolerable. We understand that you are busy. You may be tempted to go about your business unless there is an open wound or blood. But you only have one brain, and these injuries should not be taken lightly.

Keep track of these symptoms in the days (or weeks) following the fall. Among the most common brain injury symptoms are (but are not limited to):

  • Headaches or Migraines
  • Numbness and a loss of coordination
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Drowsiness and slurred speech
  • Increased size of pupils
  • Seizures
  • Confusion
  • Restlessness
  • Agitation
  • Strange, outlandish behavior

If you experience any of these brain damage symptoms, contact your doctor right away.
Based on your symptoms, a professional medical expert will conduct a post-fall assessment.
Keep in mind that medical personnel will frequently focus on the visible signs – wounds, bruises, and so on. It is your responsibility to describe your internal symptoms in detail so that they can provide an accurate diagnosis.

Even if you don’t have any symptoms following a bad fall, it never hurts to get checked out. If you file a TBI claim, your brain injury lawyer will consider the doctor’s assessment.

What Are the Symptoms of a Serious Head Injury?

As previously stated, brain injury symptoms are not always black and white. Aside from common symptoms, there are several warning signs that you have a TBI. These signs are generally classified into four types:

Sense of Reasoning

These symptoms are related to your thought process: cloudiness, memory loss, difficulty remembering common information, slowness, and so on.

Physical Indications

TBI symptoms include headaches, blurred vision, drowsiness, vomiting, exhaustion, balance, increased sensitivity to light and noise, and so on.


Emotional red flags can be difficult to detect. You may notice a shift in how you deal with certain thoughts. For example, if you notice yourself becoming irritable more easily, crying at random, experiencing increased anxiety, and so on, you may be experiencing the early signs of a TBI.


Sleep pattern changes following a fall are one of the most obvious warning signs of a serious head injury. If you’re having trouble falling asleep or sleeping more than usual, you may be suffering from a brain injury.

It is difficult to identify the signs and symptoms of a brain injury. You must be alert to any changes in your physical or mental well-being. The more detailed your notes, the better prepared your brain injury lawyer will be later on.

Making Notes of Your Cause of Fall as Evidence

To change gears a little, the next step in taking care of yourself after a brain injury is assigning blame. This is by far the most important – and frequently overlooked – step in the process. Falls are embarrassing, especially when they occur in public. Your first instinct after a fall may be to flee the scene.

Falls can happen for a variety of reasons. Many of these reasons are not necessarily your fault. To make a strong TBI claim, you must examine the situation and document what occurred.

Consider the following factors:

  • Staircases that are not well maintained
  • Problems with the flooring
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Unsafe elevators
  • Sagging walkways

The evidence gathered at the scene of your fall will be critical in your TBI claim. Take as many pictures as you can and provide your brain injury lawyer with a detailed account of the incident. In addition, there are a few key points to discuss in your notes when documenting the evidence, including:

  • How you arrived
  • Any flaws in the surrounding environment that contributed to the fall
  • The area in which you landed (with photos)
  • Your footwear (with photos)
  • The name of the property’s owner

If you fall in an area where other people are present, try to obtain the names and contact information of any witnesses. These will be helpful in the development of your lawsuit.

Why You Should Contact a Brain Injury Attorney

There is no such thing as a minor brain injury. This is especially true if you were not at fault for the accident. If you’re struggling to put the pieces back together after a brain injury, we as a law firm are in your support.

Contact our law firm now. Our legal brain injury attorneys will work with you closely to understand the liability and damages in your brain injury case.

We will assist you in recovering:

  • Medical costs
  • Wages were lost.
  • Future earning potential is lost.
  • Suffering and pain
  • Punitive measures

It is not easy to obtain compensation for your losses following a brain injury. A brain injury case necessitates extensive negotiation with responsible parties, lawyers, insurance companies, and others.

Make Your Legal Claim early

The longer you wait after your fall to start the process, the more difficult it will be to justify your TBI claim. Many people are put off contacting personal injury lawyers because they believe it will be too costly. We want to disprove this.

At Schrier Law Group, we specialize in assisting victims of traumatic brain injuries in obtaining justice following a fall, blow to the head, whiplash, or other incidents. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as a result of a TBI, we can help. Kindly reach out to us now!

I must say that Mr. Schrier was there when we needed immediate advice after my wife got rear-ended by an unlicensed speeding lunatic. We called a handful of attorneys in our area, but after waiting 2- 5 days they would drop her case. We found Mr Schrier online and he explained the pros/cons and he took the case. We waited patiently, and in time he was able to tracked down the actual owners of the car and get their auto insurance info!

Gerard Avalos

Mr. Paul Schrier is by far the best attorney for the job! He is very responsive, knowledgeable, and very efficient. Despite my very busy schedule, he kept me informed throughout the process. I am very please with the outcome of my case. The customer service I received from the entire team has been amazing! Thank you all so much!

Ms. Jean


Not only did I get a phenomenal attorney to represent me in my case, but I also got a step by step education on how the legal process actually worked. I was encouraged to ask questions and be an informed client. I was never treated like a case. I truly felt like the advice and recommendations he gave to me would have been the same he would have pursued if he were the client. That was important to me. I needed to work with an attorney I could trust with my best interest in mind...and that is what I got with Paul Schrier.

I was involved in an auto accident in January 2016. We decided to contact Paul K. Schrier, PLLC for legal advice. He never got annoyed with me calling to ask questions, which was quite often. We have finally reached the final stages of this case, which they handled very well, and have come to a settlement. I highly recommend the Florida personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC, especially Paul K. Schrier to any one who needs a personal injury attorney. Thank you very much Paul for everything you have done do me.

The Schrier LG is an excellent firm! They accepted my case, provided me with all the procedural information, maintained a high level of professionalism while showing kindness and care. The doctor's office that they suggested is another group of kind and considerate individuals, dedicated to my full recovery. I would recommend the Schrier Group to friends, just as they were recommended to me. I am happy with my settlement and very pleased with the attention and diligence of the group as a whole.
