We will be able to provide you with a free consultation so you can determine whether you can receive compensation.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Injuries caused by negligent property ownership can lead to a lawsuit against the property owner. Whether you are a visitor to a restaurant or shop or residential building, you may be eligible to file a premises liability lawsuit. You can also sue for injuries caused by defective equipment such as hand rails on steps. 

A premises liability lawsuit may involve any number of scenarios, including the assault of a visitor or employee, the failure to provide adequate security, or the release of toxic fumes or chemicals. 

If you were injured in a premises liability accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Prompt medical attention can help you recover more quickly from the injuries caused by negligence. Visiting a doctor as soon as possible also provides a medical claim that will benefit your liability claim. Be sure to gather as much evidence on the incident as possible.

Common Causes of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

lawyers review accident evidence for injured client

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a severe medical condition that often results in severe and permanent disability.  TBI can result from many causes, including motor vehicle accidents and construction accidents. 

Listed below are some additional causes of TBI:

  • Falls, including from scaffold or work place
  • Road traffic accidents, including cars and motorcycles
  • Sports injuries
  • Assault and firearm-related injuries
  • Roof caving in and Explosive blasts

Our attorneys can help you navigate the legal system and reap significant compensation. We can also gather evidence, including photographs and witness statements. We can even take your case to trial if necessary. 

Compensation Available to Victims of a TBI

If you have been the victim of a traumatic brain injury, you may wonder if there is any way you can recover compensation for your injuries. 

The truth is that compensation for brain injuries is highly variable and can range from hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars. 

Many traumatic brain injuries can leave a person with substantial limitations at work. Cognitive impairments can affect how a person interacts with customers, their ability to concentrate and may interfere with job duties. In these cases, an employer may be legally responsible for making reasonable accommodations for a brain-injured employee. 

While some survivors may be able to work at their former job with modifications, others will find it difficult to return to the same position. This disability can lead to significant financial strain and reduced quality of life. .

Legal Options for TBI Victims

Injured victims and their families may be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the party responsible for their TBI. Depending on the circumstances, the compensation for this type of injury may be significantly more than the victim initially expected. Medical bills are often expensive, and life after a TBI can be filled with emotional and physical challenges for the injured party and their loved ones.

While money cannot replace the loss that the victim experienced, it can provide some financial stability and help the family receive the care they need.

Accidents causing TBI occur all of the time. Many traumatic brain injuries are preventable; some cases result from negligence or lack of care from a third party. A personal injury attorney can determine if you have a legal claim and which parties may be responsible.
