Understanding Concussions as Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

When people hear the term “traumatic brain injury” (TBI), they often think of severe head trauma resulting in long-term disabilities. However, not all TBIs are catastrophic. A concussion, often perceived as a minor injury, is indeed a form of TBI. Understanding the nature and implications of concussions is crucial, especially when dealing with personal injury cases. At Ryan Orsatti Law, we specialize in representing clients who have suffered TBIs, including concussions, due to someone else’s negligence.

What is a Concussion?
