Signs of a Severe Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries impair cognitive brain functions, such as memory and concentration, and cause a range of physical effects, including:
- Vision issues
- Problems with mobility or speech
- Impairments to senses, such as vision and hearing
Many patients with a TBI also develop issues with their mental health, including anxiety, depression, or aggression. Some even have dramatic personality changes. Depending on the extent of the damage, these types of injuries can affect an individual’s ability to live an independent life.
Often, TBI patients require ongoing care and therapy, potentially even for the rest of their lives. The cost of these treatments can quickly add up and cause significant financial instability, especially if the affected individual can no longer work.
Common Causes of a TBI
Any trauma or impact to your head can cause a traumatic brain injury. Some common causes include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Birth injury
- Medical malpractice
- Sudden impacts, such as during athletic activities
If another individual or organization is responsible for your TBI, you may have the right to pursue a lawsuit. Our team at Ramey Law Firm can investigate your injury and determine who is at fault. Based on the circumstances of your case, we can personalize a plan for collecting compensation.
We can provide aggressive representation to ensure you collect the level of compensation you need to deal with your injury.
The Benefits of Filing a TBI Lawsuit
A catastrophic injury, such as a TBI, can affect every aspect of your and your family's lives. While your insurance company will likely provide some coverage, their goal is not to help you recover. Insurance providers are focused on maintaining their bottom line and will often offer settlements much lower than you deserve.
A lawsuit can allow you to collect compensation for:
- Initial medical expenses
- Continuing therapy costs
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning potential
- Medical devices, such as wheelchairs
- Changes to your home
In some cases, the judge will also award compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced as a result of your injury.
