Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney
The Centers for Disease Control report that 1.7 million people suffer traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, annually. More than 50,000 die and more than 200,000 are hospitalized.A traumatic brain injury can be devastating for victim and family alike. Often, the victim is left living a compromised lifestyle, loved ones must become caregivers, and family finances are left in ruin.
Brain injuries are frequently caused by car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, falls, construction accidents, anesthesia errors, and birth injuries. In many cases, they are the result of negligence, and therefore are the subject of compensation claims against the party who caused the accident.
These are large and complicated cases because of their catastrophic nature and the tremendous cost of medical attention and personal care that TBI survivors often require.
Brain Injury Types
Brain injuries can be classified as mild or severe. Mild injuries—concussions, for example—often cause some memory loss, headaches, and mood problems. Severe cases result in more serious problems, including movement disorders, language disorders, emotional difficulties, executive function disabilities, and sometimes coma, vegetative states, and death.
With all brain injuries, an attorney experienced in large and complex injury cases is essential when claiming the compensation you need, because the recovery has to be enough to cover long-term medical costs, inability to work, pain, suffering, and impaired quality of life. The cost of treating brain injuries is among the highest of any personal injury.
Get Medical Treatment Immediately
After any head injury, it is imperative to get prompt medical attention. Some injuries aren’t immediately apparent, but show up after hours or days. Even with the most severe head injuries, such as a diffuse axonal injury or a subdural hematoma, which can cause coma and often death, the victim may seem uninjured at first. Never make the mistake of thinking you don’t need a doctor if you’ve hit your head in an accident. Delaying treatment could be fatal.
You Need a Lawyer
Insurance companies will typically try to settle quickly for the lowest possible amount. This is a tactic designed to force victims to make a quick decision without considering their long-term financial situation and other needs. While they may seem appealing initially, such settlements will not cover all the damages from the accident. Additional problems might stay with victims for years to come. An attorney will protect your interests and see that you get a full and adequate recovery.
