Traumatic Brain Injury
Idaho Lawyers Who Understand Traumatic Brain Injuries
At the Boise, Idaho, personal injury law firm of Hepworth Holzer, LLP, our lawyers are highly experienced in handling serious and catastrophic injury cases, including traumatic brain injury cases. Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild injuries to catastrophic brain injuries requiring full-time attendant and medical care. Because of the significant changes a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause for the injured individual and their family members, these types of injuries often require specialized care involving neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-psychologists and other professionals to fully address the lifelong sequela (or on-going consequences) that TBI patients can experience.
Science teaches us that even one concussion can lead to long-term structural damage to the brain and long-term negative health effects. As lawyers focused on brain injury, Hepworth Holzer LLP. has long been aware that concussions can lead to long-term problems. And the knowledge that repetitive concussions can cause long-term structural problems has become relatively common knowledge. And more severe head trauma leads to even greater problems.
As science comes to a better understanding of the impacts of concussion and brain injury, we as Idaho brain injury attorneys do a better job of making sure clients with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) are properly compensated for their losses.

Traumatic Brain Injuries
While head and brain injuries can involve catastrophic and visible injuries often “invisible” injuries to occur when the brain strikes the inside of the skull twice — once upon initial impact and again upon the rebound from the impact. Essentially, your brain sloshes around inside your skull and bounces off the boney parts. This injures the soft cells in the brain itself.
This phenomenon, called a coup /contra coup injury, can result in injuries and symptoms that can take months to develop, and include:
- Memory loss
- Loss of taste, smell or vision
- Inability to focus
- Comprehension skills
- Emotional instability or depression
- Loss of appetite
- Loss of balance
Following a coup/contra coup injury, accident victims often experience problems reading, find that they can’t remember simple appointments, experience headaches and may experience personality changes.
