Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
The Brain: It weighs a mere three pounds, but it is the most important organ in the body when it comes to behavior, personality, thinking, learning and remembering. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain and changes the way your brain normally works. TBI often occurs as the result of a motor vehicle collision, or auto accident.
You do not have to strike your head on an object and you do not have to be traveling at a high rate of speed for the injury to happen. It can result when the soft tissue of the brain is propelled against the hard bone of the skull. The ramifications of TBI can be quite devastating, can affect your ability to work and can impact daily living.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the most common cause of death and disability among young people today. In our country alone nearly 1.7 million people sustain a TBI every year. Approximately 270,000 of these will require hospitalization. In both more and less developed countries, motor vehicles are the major cause of deaths and disabilities, particularly in young people. Traumatic brain injury can range from mild to severe.
TBI that is graded mild typically entails a concussion, associated with short-term memory loss or concentration problems, and there is usually full neurological recovery. In a severe TBI, the patient is often comatose, unable to open their eyes or follow verbal or visual commands. Recovery and prognosis from a severe TBI are much more guarded. The inability to recognize and treat TBI can result in a delay of treatment and can exacerbate the brain damage and increase the risk of death.
It is also important to remember that all of the neurological damage does not occur immediately, but evolves later over time. If you have any of the symptoms listed below, it is imperative that you be evaluated by a medical professional as soon as possible. While the medical community may deem a concussion as “mild” TBI because concussions are usually not life-threatening, their effects should not be minimized. It is critical to get the proper attention and treatment to better recognize, respond and thereby recover from a TBI.
The warning signs and symptoms of a concussion or brain injury include the following:
- Problems thinking clearly
- Vision problems
- Mood changes
- Changes in sleep patterns
- Sensitivity to light and noise
- Balance problems
- Memory deficit
- Problems concentrating
- Ringing in the ears
- Bad taste in mouth
- Slurred speech

What You Should Do After an Accident to Protect Yourself
There are steps to take after a car accident – if you are able – that can make it easier for your attorney to fight for your compensation. First is to call 911. Second is to seek medical treatment for your injuries – this is not the time to shake it off and press on. If you delay medical treatment, it can make your injuries worse and the insurance companies can blame you for damaging your own health!
While at the scene, if you are physically able, snap photos with your phone of the position of the cars and anything else important before the vehicles are moved. If the EMTs want to transport you to the hospital, let them. Acting against medical advice at any stage of this process can interfere with your chances of getting fair compensation. If there any witnesses, and you are able, get their contact information.

Very thankful to Park Chenaur for handling my case quickly and efficiently. Very compassionate team. They make sure you are comfortable and educated in your options and work hard to get you the results you deserve. My case manager Mitchel was great and helped me really understand my options and each step of the process.

They maintained contact with me and kept me informed via email and phone.. I received the medical care I needed and they fought to get that reimbursement. . And after everything I feel I got a fair deal. I highly recommend them. Also liandra is very kind and helpful…Thank you guys so much
My boyfriend and i worked with Mr. Pustzai on a car accident case. Working with him and his team was nothing short of amazing. They were there for us every step of the way, from the incident until the final court days and beyond that. I have always been able to reach out to Vita and Mr.Pustzai with any questions and get a quick response. They show empathy and are personable as well as very professional! Thank you so much for your work.
Mr. Park was understanding, extraordinarily competent, and hard working. His advice and guidance every step of the way was invaluable and extremely helpful. He was always very easy to reach by phone or email, kept me updated on all aspects of the case and succeeded in getting me a fair and generous settlement.
When you talk with them they are able to walk you through your case step-by-step, and they are able to make you understand each and every aspect of your case.
They handled my case very professionally. They were always very helpful, always available, very kind and great to work with. I felt like I was treated like family.
They just made me feel really secure that they were going to do their best and they were going to fight for me. It just felt nice to have someone care enough to want to do that for us.
My wife and son were in a collision in February, Mitchell was amazing. He made our family feel very cared for and took care of everything for us. A very competent and professional person. If I ever have any issues again I know the first place I’m going. Thanks Mitchell
My case recently closed and I am glad to have worked with Mitchel Pinedo during the entire process. I did not know how to deal with this situation as I had never been in a car accident before. I was not well health wise and neither was my mother. I lost my car as it was totaled and I was not at fault. Mitchel handled the case and exceeded all expectations. He kept me updated and answered all of my questions. Mitchel is very professional and was always punctual to our meetings. I highly recommend you to see Mitchel if you are in need of a great lawyer.
I first worked with Kimberly Yoon about 10 years ago for an auto accident case. Though I had no knowledge of legal procedures, she was so patient and sincerely empathetic. So when I was involved in another auto accident, I knew she was the best person to call. Her level of experience and client care exceeded my expectations. Her assistant, Michael, is just as caring and quick to follow up as she is. Thank you very much for eliminating much of the stress that follows an accident and ensuring that your client gets the best care!
Park Chenaur is the best! I’ve been referring people to Kimberly Yoon for the last three years because she’s amazing! She works hard to get you the best possible outcome for your case and really makes you feel great as a client. My mom was in a auto accident last year and Kimberly was able to get her well above what we were expecting. Thanks again Kim & Park Chenaur!
My mother and I worked with Mitchel Pinedo after our car accident and all I can say is he’s truly wonderful. He made the entire process easy to understand and was extremely helpful. It was our first time seeking out a lawyer and having him help us from start to finish made the whole experience much better and stress free.
I have had a positive experience and will continue to recommended to friends and family. I could not have asked for a better firm or attorney for not one but several cases. Park Chenaur & Associates are honest, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and have been very important and good to me for several years. I highly recommend!
Very happy with the end result. Never thought I would get a million. Great friendly hard working people. Thanks again.
