When people experience blows to the head, whether it’s due to motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, sports injuries, and even physical violence, they’re at risk of suffering traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). TBIs can range from minor concussions to severe injuries that result in life-threatening complications and lifelong disabilities.
At Skolrood Law Firm, we’ve seen how serious TBIs can be for victims and their loved ones. Even relatively minor TBIs can affect victims enough to make it difficult or impossible for them to work due to impaired cognition, concentration, and fine motor skills. More severe TBIs not only rule out working, but they also may necessitate specialized healthcare, including around-the-clock medical supervision. The costs associated with TBIs can be enormous, especially when the victim was the primary income earner for their household.
If you or someone you love suffered a TBI because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for what you’ve gone through. Your livelihood may be permanently affected, and you may deal with complications such as impaired movement, personality and cognitive changes, and reduced independence for the rest of your life. Unfortunately, insurance companies rarely give TBI victims the money they need for their injury related expenses, including their current and future medical bills and lost wages—not to mention their pain and suffering.
