Symptoms of TBI vary depending on the extent and type of the damage to the brain. Concussions make up around 75 percent of TBIs and can cause short-term memory and cognitive (thinking) impairments, as well as increasing the risk of dementia and other complications over the long run. More serious TBIs may result in long-term cognitive impairment, vision and hearing loss, seizures, memory impairment, and changes in behavior and personality that persist over the course of months, years or even the rest of the victim’s life. If someone else was to blame for the accident, you are likely entitled to full compensation for all medical costs related to your TBI, as well as the cost of ongoing treatment and adaptive medical devices. If a TBI makes it impossible for you to continue working or if it reduces the amount of money you can earn, you may be compensated for lost wages and lost earning potential. If a TBI causes pain and suffering, emotional distress or a decline in quality of life, you may be paid compensation for those losses as well. Close family members of someone killed as a result of a TBI may recover wrongful death damages, including lost companionship and funeral costs. To obtain compensation, you will need to prove that another driver or other party was responsible for the crash that caused the TBI.
If you sustain any blow to the head as a result of a car accident, you need to get prompt medical treatment. Sometimes internal bleeding in the brain will not cause immediate symptoms but could be deadly without proper treatment. You should make sure you get a full, comprehensive, and accurate diagnosis. The full extent of TBI symptoms may not be known until several weeks or even several months have passed. It may not be immediately clear how well your brain will recover from the trauma. Contacting a lawyer is also important. You may recover compensation for TBI losses through negotiation of an out-of-court settlement or by taking a personal injury claim to court. Your attorney can investigate your case and identify the defendants who were responsible for the TBI, and then take the appropriate legal action to maximize your chance of recovering full compensation.
