How Serious Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?
Traumatic brain injuries can be life-threatening. They happen when there is immediate damage to the brain, often through some sort of forceful blow. They can cause damage to brain tissue and increase the pressure inside the rigid cavity of the skull.
Because the brain controls how your body functions, traumatic brain injuries can alter your ability to function after they occur. You might experience changes in your ability to think or communicate with others. Sometimes, emergency medical interventions are necessary to save your life.
Traumatic brain injuries can happen in a variety of circumstances. For example, car accidents or collisions can cause traumatic brain injuries. A significant fall can result in a TBI as well.
Other times, traumatic brain injuries can happen due to sports or acts of violence.

What Compensation Can I Get in a Traumatic Brain Injury Case?
Typically, the more severe your traumatic brain injury, the more you may be able to recover compensation. Once we’ve had a chance to review your case, we might be able to provide you with a rough estimate of what you could receive in compensation.
Compensation can help to cover your costs from the traumatic brain injury. For example, it could help to cover your medical bills, including follow-up treatment and long-term care. It could also cover costs related to the income you lost while you could not work.
Depending on your unique circumstance, you might pursue compensation from more than one person or group based on who was responsible for the accident.
