Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be caused by a jolt, bump, jolt, or penetration to the head that disrupts the brain’s normal function. Severity of an injury of this nature ranges from mild to severe. TBI-related emergency room visits have increased steadily in recent years, and TBI accounts for nearly a third of injury-related deaths each year in the United States. TBI can result in permanent mental and physical disability and emotional dysfunction. Potential effects of TBI include memory problems, headaches, vision issues, difficulty reading, concentration, or with word usage, changes in behavior, and issues with rage and managing emotions or behavior. Even people with mild brain injuries or concussions often report difficulty focusing, interruptions in through process, and memory retention issues.
Every traumatic brain injury, mild or severe, can have a profound, life-changing impact – for both the patient and their support network.
Approximately 1.5 million Americans are involved in accidents that cause traumatic brain injury each year. Motor vehicle, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents account for a large percentage of these injuries. Athletes and members of the military commonly suffer traumatic brain injuries as well.

"A neighbor said he saw sparks, but we didn’t see any fire. I ended up in the hospital for months. A friend of mine recommended this firm. David did a lot of research, hired just the right experts and got all the information. They did a good job for me. They communicated well and told me what was going on. I don’t know of anyone that could have done better. They turned out to be very good friends."
"Sending you a friendly reminder! It has been 10 long years since my 1st accident. I know, hard to believe! And I wanted to express to you, a huge thank you David! I don’t know where I would be, or what the outcome of all that has happened, that could have been….without you. Thank you so much for being so kind to me, and caring for me; which has produced a great friendship! Know that I appreciate the role you have played in my life."
"Words cannot express the amount of gratitude and a million thank you’s to you. What a pressure of relief off me! These past years have been a struggle for my family and I. I will hold you in the highest regards and nothing but faith and happiness to both of you. You have fought long and hard for us! I guess my upbringing and personality were never to sue or properly bring justice. But the morning after the crash and years of pain tends to change your fight. I’m a firm believer that certain people pass through your life for a reason. Thank you so much again!"
"Thank you just doesn’t come close to what you deserve for everything you have done for me. Over two years ago I came in not having a clue what to do. You listened to me, you cared for me, and you fought for me. And you continued to fight for me. I cannot express the appreciation and gratitude I have for you. You are a man of character and it shows in your work. It has been a privilege and honor to have met you and to have you on my side."
"I would like to thank you for all you have done for me. My case was complicated having the two insurance companies in the beginning. I was very concerned about how that would be resolved. This has been a long hard process. I really appreciate everything you have done for me."
"I needed the direction and Christopher Hoffer provided that. He is very calm, well organized, and very capable. I still have pain from the car accident today but he helped me get a settlement from the insurance company to cover auto and medical expenses and was very supportive. He did a great job for me and he’ll do the same for you."
