Did you recently sustain a head injury as the result of an accident? If so, you know the importance of listening to everything your medical team has to say. This is important not only for your wellbeing but also to protect any legal options you might have available. Receive the medical care that you need and then reach out to a lawyer to determine your legal options.
Common Symptoms of a Brain Injury
A simple brain injury can lead to a variety of symptoms, which include:
- Loss of consciousness
If you are in an accident and have these symptoms, it is important to seek medical care. More severe brain injuries can cause:
- A variety of cognitive impairments
- Chronic headaches
- Memory impairment
- Speech difficulties
Over the years, the effects of brain injuries have resulted in some of the highest lawsuit settlements and jury awards. This is because the medical care and home services that are often needed to care for patients with traumatic brain injuries can be expensive.
Recoverable Costs Following a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
We recognize the many costs that follow a traumatic brain injury. In addition to immediate medical care, you are likely to need follow-up care. Other medical costs might include rehabilitative care or physical therapy. While you are recovering, you may not be able to return to work. In some cases, a traumatic brain injury can prevent you from ever returning to the same line of work. Pain and suffering may also be an important cost to consider. Dealing with a TBI can be both physically and emotionally painful.
We consider each and every one of these costs when considering the value of your case. It is important that we fight to get our clients as much compensation as possible. While compensation may not take away the pain that you and your family have had to deal with it, it can make it easier to deal with the recovery.
