Why TBI Victims and Their Families Need Legal Representation

by Staff Blogger | February 7th, 2019

Whether they’re due to auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, work-related accidents, or even acts of violence, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are often lifechanging for victims and their families. That’s because injuries to the brain can cause dramatic changes in everything from fine motor skills and balance to memory and cognition.

It’s common for TBI victims to face huge medical bills for hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitation. Many may also require in-home care and even around-the-clock supervision and assistance from nurses and other medical professionals. Working a full-time job often becomes difficult or impossible for TBI victims, which means they no longer have the opportunity to earn an income for their families.

Like all personal injury victims, TBI victims who were harmed because of someone else’s negligence can file compensation claims to get money for their injury-related expenses. However, pursuing compensation after a TBI can be extremely difficult. That’s because victims are often unable to complete many of the steps necessary to complete a claim on their own, and their loved ones may be too busy and exhausted from caring for them and managing their households to take on the task themselves.
