Closed Head Injury/Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injuries - Virginia Brain Injury Lawyer Discusses


Rick Shapiro, a Portsmouth, Virginia (VA) brain injury attorney, talks about the similarities and differences between a closed head injury/concussion injury and a traumatic brain injury. Rick explains that closed head injuries or concussions can have the similar side effects as a traumatic brain injury (a.k.a. TBI) and can even be categorized as a mild traumatic brain injury. To determine the severity of the injury, our brain injury law firm may consider hiring a specialist like a neuropsychiatrist to analyze our client. This analysis could prove to be essential medical evidence during a settlement negotiaton or trial.
