If you or a loved one sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a personal injury incident, you already understand the effect these injuries can have. Suffering from a brain injury is never easy. A TBI can be straining on a person's physical, psychological, and financial health. A TBI can also make it difficult to work, resume your daily activities, and enjoy a long and active life.
After a brain injury, your future may depend on the treatment you get as well as your ability to pay for the treatment that you need. That's why you should consult with an attorney about getting the compensation you deserve. The medical bills and lost income, in addition to the pain and suffering, are not something you should have to deal with alone.
Get in touch with a Glendale traumatic brain injury lawyer at Tim D. Wright if you are struggling with a head injury because of a motor vehicle accident or any other accident.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
The definition of a traumatic brain injury is "a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury." These injuries include:
TBIs range from mild to severe with varying symptoms and degrees of prognosis.
Mild traumatic brain injuries usually affect an individual for a short time period before they make a complete recovery. More serious traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and other physical damage that results in long-term complications or death.
What Kinds of Brain Injury Claims Does Tim D. Wright Handle?
Our brain injury lawyers take on all kinds of lawsuits involving brain injuries that were caused by another party's negligence. A few of the most common kinds of TBI claims we handle include:
Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents
Automobile accidents are one of the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car accidents are common and many result in head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, but they involve devastating force that leads to an increased chance of a TBI. And motorcycle riders simply have little to no protection and can easily injure their head when they are struck or ejected from their bike.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
Pedestrians and bicyclists are completely exposed when they are walking or cycling near roads. If a car hits a pedestrian, they are often thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This collision often results in brain injuries in serious pedestrian or bicycle accidents.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care, causing an injury to the patient. If the mistake causes a lack of oxygen to the brain, or fails to notice or treat an existing brain issue, a TBI may result.
Infant brain damage can occur during childbirth in certain circumstances that are naturally caused and also in situations involving negligence. The most common causes of birth injury TBIs are the use of an instrument like forceps with excessive force or asphyxiation when the brain is deprived of oxygen for too long.
Slip and Fall
When a person slips and falls from a slippery floor or damaged staircase, they can easily hit their heads hard enough to result in a brain injury. Some falls are not serious and result in minor injuries. But some can be devastating and lead to long lasting consequences and real pain and suffering.
Some workplaces and industries are known to be more dangerous than others. For instance, an employee in the construction industry might suffer a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a car accident. In these situations, they might be able to recover compensation through workers' compensation benefits. If a party besides the employer was responsible, they may be able to receive additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.
Compensation for Damages from a Brain Injury
Getting compensation for a brain injury that was not your fault can make all the difference for you and your loved ones. For the most part, victims and their loved ones are dealing with mounting bills, stress, and an uncertain future. If your traumatic brain injury is severe, you could be out of work for some time. Along with medical bills, you might be able to receive other compensation because of the accident.
Insurance providers will pay the least amount possible because they are in business to make money. They don't care about your injuries; they just care about their profits. If you try to settle, you may not get enough compensation for past medical bills, never mind future medical bills and lost time from work.
The various kinds of compensation that you may receive consist of:
Traumatic brain injuries may be minor or severe and might have lengthy recovery times. Compensation for long-term injuries will help you support yourself and your loved ones.
