Know the Symptoms of a TBI
Not all TBI injuries are immediately apparent. In fact, you can develop brain trauma without ever being struck in the head or losing consciousness. Mild traumatic brain injuries can be present for several weeks before symptoms appear. If you’ve recently had an accident or injury, be aware of common TBI symptoms, including:
• Memory loss
• Issues with speech and language
• Partial or full loss of hearing/vision
• Sleep disorders
• Behavioral disorders
• Personality changes
1.7 million Americans suffer a traumatic brain injury each year. Over 70,000 develop a long-term disability as a result.
Undiagnosed or untreated head injuries can have devastating long-term effects, including dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and depression. If you’ve been in an accident, seek immediate medical attention to ensure your health and safety.
Quick Answers from Our Attorneys
Q: How long do I have to file a traumatic brain injury lawsuit in Oregon?
“Oregon has various time limitations for filing and settling a traumatic brain injury claim. In general, you have 2 years from the date of your traumatic brain injury to file and settle your claim. In most cases, after this statute of limitations, any rights of monetary compensation will be lost.”
— R. Brendan Dummigan
Q: Do you accept cases when the client can’t pay the costs?
“We believe everyone deserves to be heard and have their day in court, regardless of where they come from or if they are rich or poor. Contact us to learn more about our fees and how the process works. Remember, you don’t pay anything unless we win your case.”

Excellent client communications, taking the time to educate us and setting realistic expectations. The results exceeded expectations.
