Aurora Brain Injury Attorneys

Representing the Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury Throughout Southern Missouri

Dealing with a traumatic brain injury can be challenging, particularly because the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury or TBI may not be immediately apparent. Many accident victims only realize they have a TBI when, following a crash, they have unexpected neurological symptoms.

The first 24 hours following the accident can be particularly critical. At Pettit Law Office, our brain injury lawyers in Aurora have been advocating for accident victims since 1957. We have an impressive track record, recovering millions of dollars in damages for thousands of clients.

Early Signs of Traumatic Brain Injury 

Quickly and accurately diagnosing a TBI following a car crash or other accident is heavily dependent on seeking out a medical examination immediately after the incident.

Common symptoms of TBI can include:

  • Concussion
  • Sensory issues—blurred vision, double vision, loss of sense of smell, etc.
  • Slurred speech
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness for any length of time during or after the accident
  • Difficulty waking from sleep
  • Seizures or muscle weakness

Crashworthiness Doctrine and What it Could Mean For You

Over half of recorded TBIs occur as the result of a car accident. “Crashworthiness doctrine” refers to the legal understanding that, while no private automobile is intended to collide with another object, automobile manufacturers are required to design cars that have taken into consideration foreseeable occurrences during everyday use of their vehicles. If your car accident was caused by an automotive defect, that is a significant factor in your case.

Comprehensive Legal Support for TBI Victims
