Traumatic Brain Injury FAQs
Q: When should a person seek medical treatment for a possible brain injury?
If you have any concerns about a possible brain injury, you should seek medical attention right away. If you were involved in a vehicle collision, if your child hit his or her head while playing sports, if you hit your head at work, or if you have any other reason to suspect TBI, your next step should be to see a doctor. Some of the early symptoms of TBI include:
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty sleeping or staying awake
- Memory loss
- Unconsciousness (even momentary loss of consciousness)
Q: When can a TBI victim seek financial compensation?
If you or your spouse, parent, or child has been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, you should discuss your rights with an attorney. If someone else is to blame for what happened, you could be entitled to a significant financial recovery. You may need to secure just compensation in order to cover your ongoing medical expenses, loss of income, and other financial and non-financial losses. We have represented clients in cases involving:
- Birth injuries
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Medical mistakes and nursing home abuse
- Motor vehicle collisions
- Premises-related accidents (slips, trips, and falls)
- Product-related accidents
- Sports accidents
- Train, boat, and aviation accidents
- Other serious accidents
Q: What are the potential long-term effects of traumatic brain injuries?
While some individuals will be able to fully recover from traumatic brain injuries, many will experience lifelong effects, including:
- Chronic pain
- Developmental disabilities
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Memory loss
- Sensory impairments
In the most-severe cases, TBI patients can experience brain death, remain in a minimally-conscious state, or fall into a vegetative state.
Q: How much does it cost to hire a brain injury lawyer?
Our firm handles all brain injury cases on a contingency-fee basis. So, it costs you nothing out of pocket to hire our team of attorneys, and you do not pay anything unless we help you win just compensation. If we win, our fee is calculated as a percentage of your settlement or verdict.
