If you or a loved one suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during a personal injury accident, you already understand the impact these injuries can have. Coping with 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 might depend on the treatment you receive and your ability to pay for the care that you need. That's why you should consult a lawyer about getting the compensation you are entitled to. The medical expenses and lost income, along with the pain and suffering, are not something you should have to handle on your own.
Get in touch with a Glendale traumatic brain injury attorney at Tim D. Wright if you are struggling with a head injury due to an automobile 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.
Minor traumatic brain injuries generally impact a person for a brief time period before they make a complete recovery. More severe traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and various other physical damage that results in long-lasting complications or death.
What Kinds of Brain Injury Cases Does Tim D. Wright Handle?
Our brain injury lawyers handle all kinds of cases involving brain injuries that were caused by another party's negligence. A few of the most common types of TBI claims we handle include:
Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are among the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car accidents are common and several result in head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, but they involve devastating force that results in an increased likelihood of a TBI. And motorcycle riders simply have little to no protection and can easily hurt 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 biking near roadways. If a vehicle hits a pedestrian, they are usually thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This impact often causes brain injuries in serious pedestrian or bicycle accidents.
Medical malpractice occurs when a physician, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care, resulting in 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 situations 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 too much 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 cause minor injuries. However some can be devastating and lead to long lasting consequences and real pain and suffering.
Some jobs and industries are known to be more hazardous than others. For example, a worker in the construction industry may sustain a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a vehicle accident. In these situations, they might be able to recover compensation through workers' compensation benefits. If a party besides the employer was responsible, they might be able to get additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.
Compensation for Damages from a Brain Injury
Receiving compensation for a brain injury that was not your fault can make all the difference for you and your loved ones. In most cases, victims and their loved ones are dealing with accumulating expenses, stress, and an unclear future. If your traumatic brain injury is severe, you may be out of work for some time. Along with medical expenses, you may 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 only care about their profits. If you attempt to settle, you may not receive enough compensation for past medical expenses, never mind future medical bills and lost time from work.
The different kinds of compensation that you can receive consist of:
Traumatic brain injuries might be mild or serious and might have extensive recovery times. Compensation for long-lasting injuries will help you support yourself and your family.
