There are few things that are worse than suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This is even more devastating if the injury was sustained in an accident that was not your fault. If you are in this situation, you may be entitled to compensation for your brain injury.
No amount of money can undo the damage caused by a brain injury, but filing a personal injury claim can help victims recover the compensation they need to move forward. Take the first step towards seeking justice and winning compensation by contacting the TBI lawyers at Malloy Law Offices, LLC.
A TBI occurs when a bump, blow, or sudden jolt to the head affects the brain’s ability to function normally. TBIs can occur in many different ways, but some of the most common causes include:
Every TBI is classified as mild, moderate, or severe. Mild TBIs such as concussions are far more common than moderate or severe TBIs. Although mild TBIs are not as serious as moderate or severe TBIs, they should not be taken lightly. In fact, even a mild TBI can disrupt your life and lead to devastating long-term consequences.
A brain injury claim is a type of personal injury case that is usually based on negligence. This means if you file a brain injury claim, you will need to prove that your injuries were caused by the defendant’s negligence.
To prove negligence, you must show that:
For example, say you suffer a TBI in a car accident caused by an intoxicated driver. Every driver has a legal obligation to drive responsibly. Being intoxicated behind the wheel is not responsible, so the driver failed to fulfill their legal obligation by driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Therefore, the intoxicated driver would be liable for your injuries since the accident occurred as a result of their negligence.
To put it simply, if your brain injuries were caused by someone’s negligence, that party can be held liable.
Brain injury victims in Clinton are entitled to compensation for:
TBIs typically require extensive medical treatment, including emergency surgery, in-patient hospital stays, rehabilitation, and physical therapy. Because of this, brain injury victims are usually awarded a significant amount of compensation to cover their current and future medical expenses.
A brain injury can also interfere with a victim’s ability to work. You may be temporarily or permanently unable to work after suffering a brain injury. This is why victims are often awarded high sums of compensation for their current and future loss of income.
Brain injury victims can also recover a substantial amount of compensation for non-monetary losses such as their pain and suffering. This is because brain injuries can lead to mental, physical, and emotional changes that can affect you for the rest of your life.
For these reasons, most brain injury cases are high-value cases.
Many victims have to spend weeks or months in physical therapy and rehabilitation in order to regain normal functioning.
