Traumatic brain injuries (or TBI) usually resulting from a violent blow or jarring of the head and are often tragic. Sometimes a TBI is caused by a direct physical impact to the head, while other times they can be caused without actual impact, where a sudden movement (such as sudden jarring from a car crash) causes the tissue in the brain to accelerate internally within the skull.
Brain injuries are particularly difficult because they often can impact people in ways that aren’t always visible. This includes things such as headaches, memory loss, confusion, irritability, vision problems, or a change in personality.
TBI injuries range in medical diagnosis from “mild,” to “moderate,” to “severe.” Do not let these classifications mislead you, however, as even a so-called “mild” traumatic brain injury can have a lasting impact on a person’s life. Concussions and related post-concussion disorder can last for years and can even be permanent. Moderate and severe brain injuries often involve brain bruising, bleeding, and torn tissue which may never be fully resolved.
TBI injuries are unlike any other and require special knowledge and attention. In order to obtain a full-legal recovery related to a TBI, it is very important that a brain injury lawyer is intimately familiar with the medical issues involved in TBI injuries to make sure that these injuries are fully documented and understood. It is also important that your TBI lawyer has access to the best neurological medical experts and medical Life Care Planners so that a complete plan can be established for how to provide the best quality of life for a brain injury victim.

Don is a founding partner and one of the nation’s top-ranked personal injury litigators. He is a member of the Multi-million Dollar Advocates Forum, which includes less than 1% of the nation’s trial lawyers, and awarded the highest ranking given by Martindale Hubbel and AVVO.

In nearly all cases, our clients seek compensation from the wrongdoer’s insurance company. Before forming Wruck Paupore, Jason worked for a prominent law firm representing some of the world’s largest insurers. This experience gives Jason a deep understanding of the insurance industry and the strategies it uses to pay injury victims as little as possible.
Jason -- and our entire team -- put this inside knowledge to work to force insurance companies to pay what is actually owed. Often, we use the insurance company’s own tactics against them as we fight for the full compensation our client deserves.
For more than four decades, Keith has been fighting for injury victims. During that time, he’s watched the insurance industry change, with insurers now more interested in protecting their stock price than treating injury victims fairly.
Since the beginning, Keith has put people first. From his childhood in Gary, Indiana during the 1960’s and working his way through law school, Keith has risen to become one of the Midwest’s most respected trial lawyers. He has never forgotten that being a lawyer is about helping people -- and seeing injury victims through struggles in a way that could change their lives forever.
Over the decades, Keith, Don and Jason have fought relentlessly for clients, even when other lawyers have said the case was impossible to win.
