Traumatic Brain Injuries and Compensation

Whether your traumatic brain injury is defined as mild, moderate, or severe, all brain injuries can be life-altering. In many cases, the long-term effects can be both physically and emotionally devastating. If you or a loved one have sustained a TBI as the result of another’s negligence, read on to learn your rights in receiving compensation for your injuries.

What are the Long-Term Consequences of a TBI?

Some TBI victims may experience some or all of the following long-term effects:

  • Physical difficulties such as lack of coordination and flexibility, as well as chronic headaches.

  • Difficulty performing daily tasks such as bathing and getting dressed.

  • Speech problems such as the inability to form words and other communication issues.

  • Psychological issues such as mood swings, aggression, depression, and anxiety.

  • Cognitive issues such as problems with memory, attention span, learning, and lack of concentration.

Other long-term effects of a TBI can contribute to the development of epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other brain disorders.

How to Pursue Compensation for a TBI

Insurance companies make obtaining fair compensation difficult as they often dismiss the long-term effects that come along with a traumatic brain injury. When it comes to recovering damages for your TBI, enlisting the help of a personal injury lawyer can make all the difference.

Proving the existence of a severe brain injury is tricky, but with the help of an attorney, expert neurological doctors, and medical documentation, you can increase your chances of a just settlement. A personal injury attorney will help you thoroughly investigate your accident, who the responsible parties are, and the damages you are entitled to.
