If you are a victim of a traumatic brain injury, you have the right to seek justice. In the United States over 50,000 people die each year from injuries they sustained from brain trauma. Shockingly, 30% of all injury deaths are a result of traumatic brain injury. They’re unfortunately more common than you think.
So, if you find yourself a victim of this grave type of injury, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. Next, contact a qualified personal injury attorney and begin the process of filing your traumatic brain injury case. The right lawyer will make the process as effortless and smooth as possible for you – as you deserve a chance to seek justice and compensation for what you have suffered. If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, it’s crucial you seek to hold that party accountable.
How Do I Know If I Have A Case For A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit?
The phrase “Traumatic Brain Injury” means a traumatic insult to the brain and its related parts resulting in organic damage thereto that may cause physical, intellectual, emotional, social, or vocational changes in a person.
If you or a loved one have suffered a head injury, it’s important to realize the cause of the injury. Did your loved one slip and fall and hit their head? Were they hit by a car, causing brain damage? Did they suffer blunt trauma to their head?
When an individual suffers a traumatic brain injury, they will exhibit certain physical, mental and behavioral symptoms. Sometimes this means delayed response time, dizziness, changes in speech or a decline in fine motor skills. Symptoms are unique and vary from case to case. Traumatic brain injuries can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain which cannot be seen until properly diagnosed. It’s imperative to consult medical help immediately to not just address the injuries, but to officially document and file the symptoms of what ails you. This is helpful in court.
If someone else’s negligence caused you, or someone you know, to suffer a traumatic head injury, you may have grounds to file a personal injury case. In many cases, a hazardous workplace can cause a traumatic brain injury. If your workplace supervisor or boss failed to take adequate measures to keep your workplace safe and up to code, their negligence likely was a cause of your injury. Perhaps you suffered a car accident and another driver t-boned your vehicle, causing your head to suffer blunt trauma. You are entitled to seek compensation due to this person’s negligence.
Do I Need A Lawyer To Defend Me In Court?
There is no law in the United States that states every individual must hire a lawyer in order to file a lawsuit. The option always exists to defend yourself in court or settle for the help of a public defender. But when you fail to choose a lawyer with, at minimum, a decade of experience solving the exact problems you have, you run the risk of not receiving the highest compensation possible.
Although causes of traumatic brain injuries vary, seeking the right legal representation for your brain injury claim can help you in the long run. This specific type of lawsuit is complex, and you need to work with a lawyer that’s skilled in defending these types of victims.

What Should I Look For In A Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney?
Traumatic brain injuries are often complex, as the signs and symptoms of these injuries vary greatly from patient to patient. Many traumatic brain injury victims, unfortunately, suffer injuries that make it difficult for them to heal quickly and often leave victims with permanent disorders for life.
You should seek to work with a lawyer who is compassionate and understanding, as traumatic brain injuries can be devastating and emotionally taxing. Attorney Damoun A.

Can A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit Cover My Medical Expenses?
Your lawyer will defend you in court and state your case, explaining to the judge how the other person’s negligence led to your unjust injury. Your lawyer will seek to uncover compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills, as the injury was not your fault and was directly the result of someone else’s poor behavior. You don’t deserve to be bogged down by debt or high medical bills in this type of scenario.
Traumatic brain injuries can cause debilitating issues for any individual, young, old, healthy or otherwise. A blow to the head can change your life. You deserve compensation for your medical costs at the very minimum, but your lawyer will also seek to compensate you for any lost wages you may have missed from not being able to attend work.
Additionally, traumatic brain injuries often lead to the need for long-term care. Some patients need physical or occupational therapy, or might need to take costly medication for possibly the rest of their lives. The right attorney will factor all of this information into your case in order to earn you the maximum possible settlement. You shouldn’t have to suffer the financial consequences of someone else’s negligence.
