Memphis Brain Injury lawyer
Diagnosing and What to do After a Head Injury
As the control center for our minds and bodies, the brain is vulnerable in an accident. Even a minor brain injury can have severe and long-term repercussions. What may seem like a slight jolt at the time of a car accident could later turn into something more serious.
The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) reports that 40 percent of people hospitalized for traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) have at least one unmet need after the accident. This can include:
- memory and problem solving improvement
- managing stress and emotional upsets
- controlling temper
- improving job skills
If you or someone you love has been injured, contact the Memphis brain injury lawyers at John Michael Bailey. Our Tennessee and Mississippi personal injury lawyers are experienced in and out of the courtroom, and we have what it takes to get the money you need for medical bills, lost wages, and to compensate you for pain and suffering.
After the accident
Traumatic brain injuries can affect more than just the injured person. A serious brain injury not only affects a person's motor skills, but it can also alter personalities and needs. Many skills need to be relearned after a brain injury, which means that victims may not be able to work. On top of lost wages and medical bills, TBI victims may not be the same person they were before the accident.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that at least 5.3 million Americans have long-term or lifelong needs associated with traumatic brain injuries. Treatment and rehabilitation can be very expensive, and the brain injury lawyers at John Michael Bailey will fight to get you the money deserve.

- struck by/against (19 percent)
- assaults (11 percent)
