Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers in Washington DC
Regan Zambri Long, PLLC understands the devastating impact that a Traumatic
Brain Injury (TBI) has on a person and his loved ones. A TBI is a complex
injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. Our knowledge
of the seriousness of these injuries is due to the fact that we have represented
hundreds of clients who have suffered a TBI. A person can suffer a TBI
in many ways, including due to a bus collision, automobile accident, medical
negligence, as well as other forms of negligence.
The leading causes of TBI are:
- Vehicle accidents
- Medical negligence
- Sports injuries
Our firm has recently obtained several important rulings in this area of
law, including a $5 million jury verdict and a DC Court of Appeals'
decision allowing for a full recovery for a client who unfortunately was
unable to continue his career as a lawyer due to a TBI. In the United
States, TBI is the leading cause of death for persons under age 45. TBI
occurs every 15 seconds. Approximately 5 million Americans currently suffer
from some form of TBI disability.

How Traumatic Brain Injuries Occur
Traumatic brain injuries are normally caused by either direct or indirect
trauma. A direct trauma injury occurs when a force penetrates or fractures
the skull causing severe brain injury. Displaced fractures of the skull
can also push bone into the brain, causing tissue damage. An example of
an indirect trauma is when a person suffers from lack of oxygen due to
medical negligence. This is considered a hypoxic event. The brain is more
susceptible to injury due to lack of oxygen (hypoxia) than any other part
of the body. Hypoxia can occur in conjunction with other injuries (heart
attack) or from any other situation where breathing or oxygen intake is impaired.
