Akron And Cleveland Brain Injury Attorney
There are two types of serious brain injuries a person can sustain: an acquired brain injury (ABI) caused by a medical condition, including from a stroke, an infection or lack oxygen to the brain; and a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a bump, blow or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. The Keefe Law Firm, LLC, proudly and aggressively represents clients throughout Ohio who have suffered both types of catastrophic brain injuries due to someone else’s fault.

This section relates to Ohio traumatic brain injury attorney representation due to serious head and brain injuries sustained in a crash, construction accident, and outside the context of medical malpractice. Each year, nearly 2.8 million Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). These injuries contribute to nearly 30 percent of all injury-related deaths in the United States. Traumatic brain injuries range from mild to severe and are oftentimes life-altering events. They can affect physical and mental abilities, alter emotions and personality, and result in memory loss, headaches, visual and sleep disturbances, depression, and seizures, and can even lead to financial ruin for Ohio families. Traumatic brain injuries oftentimes happen in motor vehicle crashes and construction site accidents and are manifested in several different ways, including as follows:
- Subdural and intracranial hematomas (blood on the brain)
- Skull fractures
- Bruising and swelling of the brain
