Traumatic brain injuries occur at a rate of 200,000 new cases per year in the United States and affect patients of all ages. A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occurs when a patient suffers a violent blow to the head. This can occur as a result of a motor vehicle accident, a fall from heights, violence, sporting events and any other type of accident where an object strikes the head or the head strikes an object.
Some of the brain injury symptoms you or a loved one might exhibit include the following:
No two brain injury cases are the same, which means you will receive treatment that is tailored to your specific injury, not the injury suffered by a friend or family member. There are a variety of treatment options available for brain injuries that include surgery, medication, rehabilitation and services provided by medical specialists. The victim of a brain injury might require speech therapy or might need to learn how to walk again depending on the severity of the injury.
Victims of brain injuries are legally entitled to compensation if the accident that led to the injury was caused by someone else’s actions. Victims can seek compensation for pain and suffering, loss of wages, medical expenses, transportation costs, expenses for updating their home to handicap accessible, loss of consortium and more.
The most important areas of compensation for brain injury victims are medical expenses and lost wages. The victim will incur tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses due to surgeries and other treatments. The victim will have trouble paying those bills due to the inability to work for a prolonged period. That’s why it’s important you speak with an experienced brain injury attorney following any accident that causes a brain injury.
