Traumatic brain injuries can lead to temporary or permanent brain damage. Brain injury cases are unique and challenging, and the outcomes of lawsuits are hard to predict, as each case is different. Though in legal terms, brain injury cases fall under personal injury, but unlike other personal injury cases, they are not easy to fight. Brain injuries are not easily identified; because of this an insurance company may try to deny the injury claim. Apart from this, symptoms of brain injury may show up days or weeks after the accident. In some brain injury cases, the victim may have little or no recollection of what happened; which can make establishing fault much more difficult.
