Traumatic Brain Injury

Published by Mark Brynteson

Regardless of whether the injury is temporary or permanent, mild or severe, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can greatly wreak havoc on the lives of the injured person and his or her loved ones. Over the years, the Mark D. Brynteson has represented many TBI clients through personal injury claims and lawsuits, and will fight for your rights to compensation and proper care.

A traumatic brain injury is the term used to describe what happens to the brain when it is damaged by sudden, physical force. The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, and getting hit on the head by an object or person. TBIs can range from mild to severe. While some TBIs can be easy to both detect and prove that they were caused in by an accident, other TBIs can be harder to identify, with symptoms taking days, even weeks after the accident to show up.

TBI Symptoms and Statistics In the U.S., there are at least 1.4 million people who sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. Signs and symptoms of a TBI can include chronic neck pain or headaches, confusion, dizziness, memory loss, difficulty focusing or concentrating, extreme grogginess or fatigue, loss of balance, nausea, blurred vision, ringing in the head, sleeping too much or too little, loss of at least one of the five senses, seizures, aphasia (problems understanding and expressing language), loss of motor control or movement, uncontrollable jerking or twitching, dysphasia (not being able to swallow or chew correctly).

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

— Dr. Jacob Caraotta

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.

— Len Salvig

We have found Mark Brynteson to give both informed and researched advice. After using several different lawyers, we now go directly to Mark for our legal issues.
