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.
