Why Does A Traumatic Brain Injury Case Matter So Much?

Being injured in an accident of any kind can throw your life into chaos. But when your injuries are incredibly severe, it's even harder to make the recovery that you need to move on and heal. And among all of the injuries you can sustain, a traumatic brain injury is one of the worst.

Also called TBI, a traumatic brain injury can change your life forever, and a traumatic brain injury lawsuit is designed to help you make a full recovery and find some kind of stability. But why is it so important to file a TBI lawsuit if your injuries were caused by someone else? It's a question that deserves a closer look.

TBI And Your Life

First, it is worth understanding just what kind of impact a TBI can have on your life in general. Traumatic brain injuries are any kind of trauma that damages the brain. And since the brain is the most important part of the body, controlling everything we are and do, a TBI can have huge implications. They can:

  • Reduce your ability to think or reason clearly

  • Trigger emotional or mood changes

  • Leave you paralyzed or disabled permanently

  • Impact memory

  • Impair cognitive capabilities

  • And more

In short, a TBI can change the very nature of who you are, and in severe cases can leave you struggling just to live a normal life.
TBI And Your Finances 
Not only will your overall life experience change as a result of TBI, but so will your financial stability. There are numerous ways that a TBI will impact your finances, including the following.

  • Medical Bills - The medical bills immediately following your accident will pile up quickly. However, with many TBIs you'll also have ongoing medical costs for months or even years - and in some cases, for the rest of your life.

  • Lost Wages - Your accident could mean that you miss work for days or weeks, and those lost wages will matter. But a TBI could leave you unable to perform your job duties anymore, which in turn means that you have essentially lost the ability to earn an income.

  • Existing Bills - What happens when you can't pay existing bills? Interest rates and late fees add up, and you could end up drowning in debt.

Your brain injury could leave you facing all of these costs and more. And if your accident was caused by someone else, why should you be left paying or struggling financially for years? Our lawyers fight to get you what you're owed so you can focus on your physical recovery.

Moving On After An Accident

A TBI will impact your life in many ways, obviously. And it can influence the lives of those around you - those financially dependent on you may find that your income is no longer part of life, and they could be left providing you with care. That's why a brain injury lawsuit is so important. It helps those injured and those close to them get the financial security needed to focus on moving on and learning to live with a TBI as part of their lives.

Our lawyers understand how difficult this process can be. We'll stand up to the powerful and fight to get you what you're owed. You don't deserve to struggle with a TBI, and we make sure that those responsible pay so you can heal physically.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
