Traumatic Brain Injury
If you have come to this page, you likely have had a tragedy in your life. We can only begin to understand your despair and feelings of helplessness for some of you with a loved one who has experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Families of individuals with a personal injury say their lives are irrevocably changed. The challenges of caring for someone with TBI can be more daunting, and the expenses can be enormous.
Traumatic Brain Injury: Where to turn?
When someone is at fault for causing or contributing to TBI, the victim and their family may have legal recourse and compensation beyond insurance and small compensatory payments.
If you believe your loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury through no fault of their own, or perhaps by a combination of factors, contact us by filling out the “Contact Us” form at the bottom of this page or call (404) 554-0777.
With cases of TBI, time is of utmost importance. First and foremost, medical care must be obtained, but contact us as soon as you can to discuss your options. Insurance companies are quick to contact victim’s families and offer settlements, but these financial arrangements are frequently short-term and less than what might be awarded in a lawsuit. You have legal rights that, if you sign anything, might be signed away in the “fine print.”
Our attorneys work closely with physicians and other health care professionals to help victims and their families seek and demand a resolution that will provide for the health, well being, and financial support a TBI victim will need for life.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports the leading causes of TBI are:
- Falls (35.2%)
- Motor Vehicle/traffic/motorcycle accidents (17.3%)
- Struck by/against something (16.5%) and
- Assaults (10%)
Men are more often diagnosed with a TBI (59%).
These statistics do not include TBI injuries seen at medical facilities at the U.S. Department of Defense or U.S. Veterans Health Administration, nor do they account entirely for TBI suffered with a sports injury or accident.
Time is of the essence in both treating TBI and gathering the information needed to file a lawsuit.
