Approximately 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur in the United States each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. This government agency has also reported that traumatic brain injuries are a cause in about one-third of accidental deaths.

Among the most common causes of brain injuries are falls and motor vehicle accidents. Effects of brain injuries include cognitive, motor and sensation functions. Children, teenagers and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to head trauma incidents, according to the agency.

Statistics and descriptions about injuries take on fresh importance and become very personal after someone in the family has been injured. If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury in a motor vehicle accident, a slip-and-fall accident or in a chemical exposure incident, turn to our Fayetteville, Arkansas, serious accident attorneys for customized advice and advocacy.


Every personal injury or fatality has unique factors that can determine how to best pursue the compensation an injured person needs to pay medical bills, replace lost wages and account for negligence, pain and suffering.

Our Northwest Arkansas attorneys have years of experience representing injured people and their families in Arkansas. Since 1982, our Northwest Arkansas catastrophic injury lawyers have been protecting the rights of people who have suffered concussions, mild head injuries and traumatic brain injuries.

We are prepared to work hard evaluating the facts of your accident, analyzing evidence of negligence and preparing compelling arguments to present to claims adjusters, judges or juries on your behalf. We are selective about the cases we take on. If we represent you, we will aim to maximize the value of your claim. You will know that we are giving your case the attention it deserves.


Closed head injury accidents can make for particularly challenging injury claims. Observers often think an accident victim has recovered nicely, when in fact problems linger on for months or years. These erroneous perceptions can make it challenging for TBI victims to obtain sizeable settlements and verdicts. Chronic headaches, dizziness and frequently changing moods are all examples of lasting struggles for head injury sufferers.

Attorneys at Odom Law Firm are very familiar with the types of diagnostic tests that can verify the extent of your injuries. We are prepared to work with specialists such as economists, life-care planners, vocational specialists, neuropsychologists and therapists to determine an appropriate dollar value for your injury claim.


Whether you need concussion treatment or extensive physical therapy to cope with serious brain trauma, we are ready to pursue the compensation that you need after a car accident or fall. If you or someone you love has sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) because another person, company or organization was negligent, we can help you bring a claim against a negligent party and go to bat for you against insurance companies as needed.
