Brain Injuries Attorneys Serving Wilmington
Martindale-Hubbell® Distinguished Legal Team in Personal Injury
Brain injuries are one of the most severe injuries you can suffer. Injuries to the brain can lead to temporary or permanent damage, resulting in a host of various symptoms and problems. Often, a brain injury or concussion may go unnoticed and undiagnosed in the wake of an accident or blow to the head only to be followed by impairments such as confusion, headache, dizziness, irritability, and more. That is why it is crucial to seek medical care after any fall, car accident, or other incident that results in a head injury, no matter how minor it may at first appear.
At Bifferato Gentilotti, LLC we are deeply familiar with all types of personal injury cases, including those involving brain injuries. Sound medical evidence is required in such cases in order to obtain fair and just compensation that will cover any future head injury-related problems and medical care.
Our award-winning firm relies on a team of trauma doctors, chiropractors, and other professionals to help establish the full extent of your injuries and their resulting effects on your life as you move forward. Furthermore, we know how insurance companies work in trying to limit their payouts and can use our legal skills to challenge them.

Head Injury Causes in Delaware
Head and brain injuries account for millions of emergency room visits, hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations, and tens of thousands of deaths throughout the U.S. every year.

- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle, pedestrian, and bicycle accidents
- Sports incidents

Losing consciousness is a common indicator of a brain injury. However, it has been determined that brain injuries can still occur even without a noticeable loss of consciousness. These injuries can lead to cognitive difficulties, personality changes, motor skill problems, seizures, depression, and more. In the worst cases, physical, emotional, and psychological impairments may last indefinitely.
Can You Fully Recover from a TBI?
The weeks following a brain injury can result in a change in brain chemistry that affects the brain tissue. In most cases, blood flow and brain chemistry can improve over time as the swelling decreases. The long-term impacts will vary from case to case, but the more severe the case is, the less likely the person will fully recover. Another factor that can impact one’s ability to fully recover is how long they remained unconscious or in a state of confusion.
According to research conducted from TBI Model System, 2 years after an injury, most people need some degree of assistance from another person. For many individuals, damage to the brain from moderate to severe TBI can result in life-long disabilities. This can include a loss of physical or mental function. Some of the severe impacts of TBI include:
- Vision problems
- Problems walking
- Issues talking or swallowing
- Difficulty thinking and remembering
