Suffering from any injury after an accident can significantly alter your day-to-day life, but few injuries are as concerning as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Any number of accidents can cause a TBI, and the symptoms will depend on the severity and location of the injury.
If you or a loved one have suffered a TBI because of the negligent or intentional acts of another party, they are responsible for your injuries, which extend beyond medical expenses. Read on to understand TBI injuries and the damages a victim can recover from a negligent party.
Any injury that results in a disruption of normal brain function is classified as a TBI. These injuries are most commonly caused by bumps, blows, or jolts to the head or a penetrating head injury. TBI represents a major cause of death and injury in the United States:
TBI victims suffer from a wide range of symptoms including:
Some symptoms appear immediately while others may develop over time and can be difficult to identify as a TBI. In addition to the above symptoms, a TBI can also cause epilepsy and increase the risk of conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain disorders. While a mild TBI may not result in serious symptoms, suffering a series of mild TBIs can cause cumulative neurological and cognitive issues.
If any party commits a negligent or intentional act that causes an accident resulting in a TBI, they are responsible for the injuries that occur. A negligent act is any action that is outside the normal standard of care. Motor vehicle accidents and falls are two of the leading causes of TBIs in the United States.
Work with your attorney to analyze the potential responsibility of the following parties:
No matter the cause of the TBI, it is important to gather evidence of the other party’s responsibility. After a fall or a car accident, a police report is an important piece of evidence that will document the accident scene, witness information, and any citations issued by the officer.
Your lawyer will help assess the strength of your evidence and to build your case against the negligent party.
The negligent party is responsible for all the damages suffered as a result of the TBI. Be sure to consider all the ways the TBI has affected your life, including:
While it can be painful to reflect on the ways the TBI has changed your life for the worse, it is an important component of securing the recovery you deserve. Your damages demand will be considered by the jury if your case proceeds to trial and is a valuable tool when assessing any settlement offer.
