Advocating on Behalf of Traumatic Brain Injury Victims

Traumatic brain injuries not only have significant short-term effects, but also carry risks of life-long memory loss or mood disorders.

How do I know if I can sue someone for my injury?

If Your Injury Was Caused by Negligence, You May Have a Case

In order to collect compensation in a lawsuit, you must be able to prove that:

  1. The defendant (the person you are suing) failed to act with a reasonable amount of care towards the injured individual
  2. The actions (or inaction) of the defendant directly caused the injuries
  3. You or your loved one suffered injuries or losses that can be measured under the law

The best way to find out if you have grounds to file a lawsuit is to schedule an appointment with an attorney at our firm. Our team can assess your case and determine the best course of action for you.

What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to varying degrees of damage to the brain.

Are there different types of TBIs? 

types of traumatic brain injuries

How a TBI Can Impact Your Life

For some clients, the repercussions may include: 

Motor Function Impairment
Your injury can affect the motor function of your brain, causing issues with coordination, range of motion, muscle weakness, and more.
Psychological Effects
TBI victims often suffer from depression, anxiety, personality changes, and aggression.
Cognitive Issues
Memory, thinking, and reasoning may be exceptionally difficult after a TBI.
Sensory Impairment
In some cases, a TBI can impact your ability to see, smell, hear, feel, or taste properly.

For many clients, traumatic brain injuries can worsen over time, often leaving them in a severely deteriorated mental state. With significantly impacted brain function, the victim may not be able to maintain an independent lifestyle or employment. We understand how devastating these repercussions can be and are passionate about advocating on your or a loved one's behalf to hold the negligent party responsible.

The Cause of Your Accident Impacts How You Proceed

Various aspects of your case are affected by the cause including: 

  • How your case is presented 
  • Which party or parties are held responsible 
  • The amount of your settlement

For instance, if you TBI was caused by your doctor, you may have a medical malpractice case. Whereas, if it occurred in a car accident you would need to negotiate with the driver's insurance. Depending on the circumstances you may also pursue a civil case. Your lawyer can help you evaluate the nuances of your case to determine the best course of action. 

How Does a TBI Occur? 

Traumatic brain injuries typically occur when an individual suffers a severe blow to the head. Events that can lead to this type of injury often include:

Any one of these events can cause serious tissue damage which frequently leads to permanent brain injury. 

Falls Are the Most Common Cause of TBIs

Being struck by or against an object accounts for another 15%. The third leading cause of traumatic brain injuries are motor vehicle accidents.

Why File a Lawsuit?

Unlike other areas of the body, the brain cannot regenerate cells once they are lost, meaning the effects of a TBI can last a lifetime. Due to their nature, a TBI can mean:

  • Lifelong medical expenses
  • Decreased earning capability
  • Reduced quality of life

Collecting damages from those responsible for your injuries can reduce the impact of the expenses accumulated due to a TBI and improve the victim's quality of life.

A key part of our strategy is hiring nationally recognized experts in bio-mechanical engineering of neuropsychology who can provide insight into your injury and the lasting impact it will have on your life.
