Costs of Traumatic Brain Injuries
What could be considered a relatively minor injury may be significant and
life-threatening when it affects the victim’s head or brain. Sudden
shakes and impacts, high fevers, and problematic medications can seem
largely benign at first, only to worsen until widespread harm has occurred.
Even when diagnosed immediately, permanent damage may have already been
done. For these reasons and more, it is crucial that someone who has suffered
a brain injury be properly compensated.
Insurance providers representing the negligent and liable party can be
notorious for only offering what they must, if anything at all. These
upfront offers should not be taken without first consulting with a personal
injury attorney who comprehends better how extensive and expensive the
consequences of your injury may be. If your TBI prevents you from going
to work, for example, you need compensation that accounts for what you
should have made throughout your lifetime. Ongoing or lifelong rehabilitation
treatment must also be included in any settlements.
Common Causes of TBI's
In understanding what causes a traumatic brain injury, we can hope to not
only prevent them from occurring in the future but also to strengthen
your own TBI lawsuit. In many cases, one act of negligence or recklessness
is the source of a dangerous head injury. In others, it is a long history
of carelessness that culminates in an accident that could have been entirely
preventable had people been more attentive or better dedicated to their
own safety and that of the people around them. No matter what the cause
for a TBI may be, the liability should only fall upon the person who is
to blame, not the victim.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Any type of brain injury carries potentially deadly consequences. If you
