Protecting Your Rights as a TBI Victim
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) that occurs as the result of an accident can be debilitating and an emotionally painful experience that causes life-long problems.
If you think you, or a family member might be entitled to compensatory damages due to the circumstances surrounding your TBI, you'll want to get legal help as soon as possible.
If it is essential to have your case reviewed by an experienced law firm who has represented those with traumatic brain injury before. An experienced law firm will be able to determine if pursuing the compensation via a law suit is the best course of action.
Many do not realize that there are actually many different types of TBIs that may result from accidents. Those known as open head injuries are fairly plain to see to anyone, since they may include gashes or cuts, or other obvious injuries. A closed head brain injury, however can be just as detrimental to your health, and should provide as much justification for a legal case to be opened. However because there are no outwardly visible effects of a closed head brain injury it can be difficult to prove the veracity of the injury though. For these cases, you'll want an experienced TBI lawyer who knows how to prove the effects of this injury during the course of a case. This will include the latest in brain scanning procedures that can produce visual evidence of the damage done to the victims brain.
There are many common ways to receive a closed head brain injury, with car accidents being one of the most seen in courtroom settings. A common presentation of closed head injury is when a person experiences a concussion. The severity of the concussion may vary depending on the seriousness of the accident. A concussion can be construed as any sort of head injury that alters the way that your brain works. This can also be accompanied by symptoms including nausea, dizziness and a ringing in the ears.
Another serious closed head injury that may occur is something known as a cerebral hematoma. This type of injury may occur when intense and rapid movement shakes the brain inside of the skull. The brain may bump against the bone and receive a bruise. Over time, this bruise may accumulate an excessive amount of liquid that the brain is incapable of dispersing. These injuries are serious because they can cause further disorders such as seizures and damage to the nervous system
If you suffer one of these brain injuries, you should always seek medical attention as soon as possible. Keep track of the findings by the doctor, as well as any related medical expenses that may come up. If you talk to an attorney about filing a claim about these injuries, these documents may be valuable. An experienced TBI lawyer will let you know whether or not they could provide support to a lawsuit. From there, you can begin the process of pursuing and possibly settling a claim that will help you recover from the damage you've received.
