Brain Injury Info
It’s estimated that 1.7 million Americans sustain traumatic brain injuries every year, with roughly 52,000 dying because of their injuries. While some TBI symptoms appear immediately after the accident, others may not manifest for days—or even weeks.
TBIs come in different levels of severity. Mild TBIs can include concussions. Moderate TBIs often involve blacking out or losing consciousness, while severe TBIs can involve extended periods of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.
The symptoms associated with TBIs will vary based on the injury’s type and severity—however, even light concussions can have long-term, debilitating effects. Every injury is different, but some of the symptoms of TBIs include:
You may not notice all of the symptoms of your injury right away, which is why it’s important to seek medical attention and seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney if you believe your injury was due to the negligent actions of another.
The attorneys at Blackwell Ruiz understand the potential dangers of head injuries, and will advise you on the best path towards seeking compensation, moving forward, and making your life whole again.
Slip & Fall: $150k Recovered
Mr. Ruiz, in my opinion, fought and won an unwinn-able lawsuit with Bank of America for me. He kept digging until he found enough evidence to convince them they could not win. I have nothing but praise for Lawrence and would gladly hire him again if the need ever arose.

Legal Questions? Talk to a top attorney
No matter how you were injured or how severe your TBI is, our attorneys are here to help you seek compensation. Our firm handles all types of personal injury cases in Phoenix and throughout Arizona.
Traumatic brain injuries are more common than you might think. Our team proudly represents hurt victims all across the state, including Phoenix, San Tan Valley, Flagstaff, Glendale, Mesa, Peoria, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Paradise Valley, Chandler, and Queen Creek.
Traumatic brain injuries are often attributed to vehicle crashes and accidents. Other common causes include construction-related accidents, slip and fall accidents, birth injuries, medical malpractice, and more.
You aren’t required to hire an attorney. However, it’s common for victims who choose to represent their own injury cases receive smaller payouts on average. Hiring an attorney gives you peace of mind for your future.
If you suffered a traumatic brain injury due to the carelessness of another person, you could have an injury case. However, it’s impossible to tell for sure until you’ve met an experienced attorney for a case evaluation.
We believe that our clients have enough to worry about already without adding legal fees into the mix. That’s why we only charge when we win—meaning you can spend less time stressing and more time getting your life back.
All personal injury cases take time, but it’s impossible to know just how long. As a general rule of thumb, the more complicated your case and the larger the sum of money, the longer your case will take on average.
Although we can’t guarantee that your case will be settled out of court, we can tell you that most of our clients don’t have to go to court. Generally, our team is able to negotiate a fair, full settlement without dragging your case out into a lengthy battle.
Damages are different for every victim and every case, but some factors that could influence your payout are medical expenses (both past and future), lost wages and future earning capacity, rehabilitation and therapy, pain and suffering, and so on.
Arizona’s statute of limitations may vary based on the unique circumstances of your injury, which is why it’s so important to file a claim as soon as possible. Missing your deadline will make it very difficult (or impossible) to seek compensation.
When you consult with an attorney, they’ll be able to review your injury claim and explain all of your available legal options at your disposal. Our consultations are zero-obligation and totally free, so you have nothing to lose.
One of the most dangerous things about brain injuries is that symptoms can be delayed by days or weeks. If you’ve hurt your head or suffered a concussion, seek medical attention immediately to protect yourself and your future.
