Over 1.4 million Americans experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. Unlike other injuries, the full impact of a TBI may not be fully known at the time of the accident or even at the time of treatment. Symptoms may appear days or weeks after an initial diagnosis, and could result in additional and costly medical treatment. Therefore, if you or a loved one has suffered a head injury due to the negligence of another, you should consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
Victims themselves or their families may have to live with the results of a traumatic brain injury for years, or even the rest of their lives. In cases where blatant abuse or negligence is the cause, the responsible parties should be held accountable.
Depending on the site and extent of the injury, a TBI can affect speech and language capacity, overall comprehension, motor skills, emotions and relational skills, or a combination of any of these. Rehabilitation can take weeks, months or even years. In some cases, damage to brain cells may be permanent and require ongoing therapy. Cases involving TBIs are commonly a result of:
- Serious Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Commercial Vehicle Accidents
- Dangerous Premises
- Construction Accidents
- Workplace Accidents
