Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

The brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body. It is considered the computer of the body because it determines our intellect, perception, and behavior. The brain has always been at the center of human fascination, as it may hold the key to our humanity. Scientists have spent lifetimes understanding the brain, and still, it proves a mystery. But, we know that the brain controls essential functions and processes that regulate our body. Therefore, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be devastating. A TBI can completely change a person’s life forever. 

Our law firm is currently filing lawsuits on behalf of individuals who suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of an accident. 

What is Traumatic Brain Injury? 

A traumatic brain injury is an injury that affects how the brain operates. A jolt to the head or a foreign object penetrating the brain can cause a TBI. According to the CDC, TBIs will cause roughly 64,000 deaths in 2020. Anyone can suffer from a TBI, but some groups are at greater risk of long-term effects or death. Traumatic brain injuries may result in more severe outcomes for the homeless, veterans, prisoners, or lower-income individuals. If you suspect a TBI, you should seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms of TBIs include, but are not limited to:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Seizures
  • Slurred speech

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury can happen because of a closed brain injury or a penetrating brain injury. A closed brain injury involves no break in the skull but occurs when rapid movements shake the brain. A penetrating brain injury happens when the skull breaks and an object impales the brain. Several accidents can cause a TBI, such as:

  • Motor-vehicle accidents
  • Falls
  • Sports injuries 
  • Child abuse
  • Domestic abuse
  • Explosions
  • Combat injuries
  • Firearms 

Traumatic Brain Injury Long-Term Effects

Some people may recover from a TBI in a few weeks or months. Sadly, other people develop life-long injuries or disabilities because of a TBI. Children react differently to TBIs than adults. For example, a TBI may result in developmental delays in children and affect social behavior. A TBI may result in adverse health problems like: 

  • Paralysis
  • Memory problems
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia 
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy 
  • Reduced language skills

Do I Qualify for a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit?

If you or a loved one sustained a traumatic brain injury following an accident, you may qualify for a traumatic brain injury lawsuit. A traumatic brain injury lawsuit can help you recover compensation for: 

  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Past and future pain and suffering;
  • Loss of wages; and 
  • Other economic losses related to your injury

Suffering a traumatic brain injury can be a life-altering event. A TBI can produce severe mental and physical ailments that can last a victim’s lifetime. It is often difficult to adjust and reintegrate into society after a TBI. Pursuing a traumatic brain injury lawsuit is challenging on your own. But, one of our attorneys can help you navigate a traumatic brain injury lawsuit. We recognize that financial compensation cannot reverse the damage inflicted by your TBI. However, seeking damages from the responsible party may cover therapy and treatments for your TBI.
