Why You Need a Lawyer After a TBI Affects Your Family

by Staff Blogger | January 30th, 2020

Few injuries are as devastating and life-changing as traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). People who suffer TBIs may experience a wide variety of symptoms and complications. Even minor TBIs, also known as concussions, can result in lifelong impairments, while more severe TBIs can cause permanent disability and even the complete loss of being able to live independently.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke brain injury lawyers have helped many TBI victims and their families after accidents, injuries, and medical mistakes that result in brain damage. We know that TBIs can be particularly impactful when they affect primary income-earners in households, as the complications often make it difficult or impossible to work.

To make matters worse, TBI victims often require intensive medical care—sometimes for the rest of their lives. They may have difficulty completing routine daily tasks, such as dressing themselves, eating, or walking. Victims who suffered severe TBIs may need live-in medical care or around-the-clock attention from medical professionals, which can be extremely expensive.

If you or someone you love suffered a TBI, it’s important to have an experienced law firm on your side right away after the injury occurs. Settlements for TBIs often pale in comparison to the full extent of damages that victims and their families incur. Our lawyers can quickly and accurately determine how much your claim is worth, and we’ll fight hard to help you get every penny. Contact us today for a free consultation.
