More than 1,000,000 people suffer from head injuries each year in the United States. Head impact injuries, especially traumatic brain injuries, can leave the victim in varying states of incapacity. The injuries can manifest themselves in uncontrolled behavior changes or other physical problems.
While blunt trauma to the skull is the most common source of traumatic brain injury, prolonged lack of oxygen, or anoxic brain injury, can also have severe consequences. With traumatic brain injury, the victim’s brain may swell, bruise, and tear, while anoxic brain injury causes the brain cells to die from lack of oxygen.
Many times even mild trauma to the head can produce brain injury. When the head is jostled back and forth in a motor vehicle collision the brain can be thrown against sharp bony ridges in the inside of the skull. This can produce a tearing or shearing of the nerve cells of the brain called axons. Axonal shearing means that valuable brain cells have been destroyed forever and this can result in cognitive dysfunction, memory loss, mental confusion, loss of sense of smell and even personality change (frontal lobe injuries).
The Gober Law Firm utilizes treatment teams of specialists like neurologists, neuro-psychologists and neuro-psychiatrists to deal with the subtle but often devastating symptoms related to mild traumatic brain injury.
We care. We understand that mild traumatic brain injury can be present when most people don’t suspect it. Often treating physicians aren’t even looking for it. But it is real.

He is a member of the Traumatic Brain Injury Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice (AAJ). He knows how to handle these cases for maximum effectiveness.
Gary Gober has worked to increase community understanding of brain injury and how to prevent it.
