Do I Need A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer?

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Yes! If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI, you need a traumatic brain injury attorney on your side to ensure that your rights as a victim are protected. Your priority should be your health and recovery, but it's essential that you speak with a traumatic brain injury attorney.

4 Ways In Which A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help You

There are many ways a TBI lawyer can help you; let’s review those.

The Filing Process

Your traumatic brain injury attorney will ensure that the proper documentation is filed.  Your attorney will also review any paperwork and documents provided by the insurance company if the injury was from a car accident, ensuring they are correct and consistent. Once all of these documents have been received and correctly processed, your attorney will present them to the defendants in an attempt to settle outside of court.

Less Stress

Having a TBI is stressful. Having to fight insurance or the responsible party is even more stressful. An experienced attorney will take care of everything, from gathering evidence to talking to witnesses.

Settlement

After a successful personal injury claim is filed, your attorney will work with the insurance company to reach an agreement.

What To Look For In A Traumatic Injury Attorney

You must remember that your ability to recover compensation for your injuries depends on the skill and experience of the attorney you choose. Always remember that no two cases are exactly alike, and each case requires a unique approach to achieve the best possible outcome.

This is why it is so important to consider the following in a traumatic brain injury attorney:

Experience

Experience is vital to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome. You want to ensure that the lawyer you hire has a proven track record of success and has handled similar cases before. A reasonable attorney can compare your case with previous cases and prepare an aggressive strategy. Be sure to ask all your questions during your free personal injury consultation.

Communication

Communication is essential to ensure that you receive the best possible results. A reasonable attorney will make every effort to keep you informed about your case and will strive to update you on significant developments. This goes a long way toward building your trust and creating a collaborative relationship between client and lawyer.

Trust

Building a trusting relationship with your traumatic brain injury lawyer is incredibly important. You want to hire an attorney who will trust you enough to put your interests first.

Compassion

Compassion is vital to being an attorney, especially when dealing with catastrophic injuries. Compassion is what drives lawyers to do what they do.

Are There Deadlines For Filing A TBI Case?

Some states have a 2-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. It is also important to note that the statute of limitations may vary depending on whether the case is based on negligence or a product liability claim. Therefore, in most instances, you should speak with a lawyer before hiring one to ensure that your case is handled correctly from the beginning.

What Is TBI?

The term "Traumatic Brain Injury" includes various conditions that result from sudden trauma to the head or body. It is a type of personal injury that can result in temporary or permanent disability, including motor impairment, cognitive difficulties, and speech problems.

TBIs are often caused by the force of an external impact on the head or body and can occur in various circumstances. TBIs can be classified as open or closed head injuries. Open head injuries are when an object penetrates through the skull and into brain tissue. In contrast, closed head injuries do not involve penetrating objects but result from blunt trauma.

Are Traumatic Brain Injuries Common?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.7 million Americans will suffer from TBIs yearly. TBI, as a head injury, disrupts the function of the brain due to an external jolt or blow to the head that can be mild, moderate, or severe. TBI is also caused by a penetrating object such as a bullet or a fragment of exploding ordnance such as an artillery shell.

TBIs can occur in babies and infants as young as four months old but are most common in children between four and 12 years of age, who are at the most significant risk of bicycle accidents, playground injuries, falls, and sports-related injuries. TBIs are also more common among veterans or active duty military service members.

What Causes TBI?

One of the most common causes of TBI is auto accidents, including traffic accidents on major transportation routes. Auto accidents are responsible for over 71% of all TBIs in the United States. In comparison to other injuries, this is a relatively small percentage. Approximately 12% are attributed to falls, and sports injuries cause about 10%.

Other causes of TBI include:

  • Blows to the head from heavy objects such as baseball bats, hammers, and hatchets
  • Blasts from explosions such as fireworks and Molotov cocktails
  • Medical malpractice
  • Drug-related incidents such as automobile accidents and barroom brawls.

What Are The Signs Of A TBI?

A TBI can be hard to recognize because the symptoms might not be immediately apparent.  The most common symptoms of TBI are as follows:

  • Severe headaches that aren't relieved by pain medication or rest.
  • Convulsions and seizures.
  • Prolonged loss of memory.
  • Behavioral changes and disorientation
  • Withdrawal from family or friends.
  • Difficulty with motor functions.

Conclusion

While it is not a simple process to file a TBI claim, with the help of a reasonable attorney, you can overcome this obstacle and obtain the compensation you deserve. It is important to remember that hiring a traumatic brain injury lawyer is the first step in obtaining compensation for your injuries. In addition, it can help you compensate for future medical care, lost wages, pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
