How A Lawyer Can Help You Cope With TBI


Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI for short, is one of the most serious, debilitating, and life changing injuries that anyone can suffer. It’s so terrible that for most, the impact is equally felt by their loved ones who often end up having to care for the injured person as they recover – if they can ever fully recover. And while the team of medical professionals who work with you and your loved ones during a TBI will be instrumental in coping and recovering, there’s another entity that could help as well. Many people don’t immediately think of a lawyer as being someone who can help in these situations, but they can be instrumental in coping with and recovering from TBI.

If you’re not convinced, it’s worth taking a few minutes to look at some of the various ways that a TBI lawyer can assist you and your family after an accident. When the injuries are caused by something that wasn’t the fault of the injured person, attorneys will begin pushing to get that person the compensation that they deserve. This can take time and effort, but it’s well worth it in the end. Here’s a breakdown of some of the ways their actions can help you.

  • • The biggest comes down to money. A TBI can be incredibly expensive, and things like lost wages, medical bills, and the potential lost wages of the next several years can create significant financial burdens. While an injured person may be offered a settlement, it usually won’t match the real-life expenses that will occur because of an injury, and that’s why finding a TBI lawyer is important. They’ll fight to make sure that the settlement you receive is actually one that can help stabilize your finances.
  • • Peace of mind and less stress are also key elements of what a lawyer can bring to the table. While there are obviously no guarantees related to the outcome of a case, an attorney can usually help you understand more of just what to realistically expect. This can help temper expectations and at the same time alleviate much worry, letting you focus more on other things like recovery.
  • • Recovery is also benefited when you aren’t worrying through the hard work and heavy lifting of negotiation with an insurance company or opposing legal team. Your lawyer will have years of experience in the field and will take care of those types of things so you can focus on healing physically, mentally, and emotionally from the wounds that the TBI has caused. Your energy is better spent in other places while the pros handle the work of getting you compensation.
  • • Simply put, the other side will be more willing to work towards helping you when you have a legal team on your side. Without a law firm working for you, the opposing side will see someone with little experience who can be pushed around and taken advantage of. But with a lawyer on your side, they’ll see that you have someone who understands the laws and that they’ll need to work to help come to an agreement that you can be satisfied with.

There’s no question that a TBI can be something that impacts your life for good. But when it’s caused by factors outside your control, shouldering the huge financial burden that can come with it isn’t something you should have to deal with. Finding a good TBI attorney means that you can rest a bit easier and that you can understand what to expect – not to mention that you’ll be more likely to get the financial help you need to stabilize your life and work towards a full recovery. They’re an instrumental part of the healing process and one that can’t be ignored.
