Questions about Traumatic Brain Injury?

Ask Our Nashville Brain Injury Attorney

While many brain injury organizations address the emotional and physical traumatic brain injury questions, a brain injury attorney has a unique insight into legal issues that may come with a concussion or serious brain injury. Brain injury lawyers must understand how a brain injury places financial and emotional burdens on victims and their family members in addition to how to use brain injury laws effectively to protect their rights. Our Nashville brain injury attorney has compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help guide traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors and their families.

What is a traumatic brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries and concussions can lead to cognitive, psychological and physical TBI symptoms including:

  • Seizures
  • Headaches
  • Speech impairment
  • Motor skill impairment
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood swings
  • Personality Changes
  • Memory Loss

With prayer, physical therapy and rehabilitation, you can begin your recovery. However, medical treatment for a brain injury is expensive. Concussion rehabilitation can also be time consuming; TBI survivors may make improvements through therapy over time. However, progression can be slow.

What causes TBI?

Common causes of traumatic brain injuries include motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, truck accidents, workplace accidents, acts of violence and sports and recreation activities. According to the Brain Injury Association of America, 1.7 million Americans, including 475,000 children, sustain a brain injury each year. Falls cause 35 percent of TBIs, while 17 percent are caused by car crashes, 16 percent by workplace accidents and 10 percent by assaults.

However, there are a few common brain injury misconceptions. For example, a brain injury does not always result from a blow to the head. Birth trauma and whiplash can also cause brain injury, but these often do not involve an external blow to the head. Additionally, a traumatic brain injury is not always the only injury suffered in an accident. Many times, in addition to a brain injury, a victim may suffer a spinal cord injury and neck injury.

What kind of traumatic brain injury treatments are available?

Medical care for brain injuries is expensive. Survivors may face an extended recovery process and many complex procedures. This recovery process can include physical, occupational and psychological therapy, as well as surgeries. Some victims may also qualify for assisted living, at-home healthcare or nursing home care. Compensation from a personal injury claim can allow TBI victims to afford the best care available when another person or company is held accountable.

What kind of injury compensation is available in a brain injury lawsuit?

Through a verdict or brain injury lawsuit settlement, TBI survivors and their families can obtain compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills, rehabilitation and long-term care
  • Education needs
  • Lost future income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional and mental distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Household modifications and specialized equipment

However, many will find that battling the insurance company can be unnecessarily complicated. In addition, the insurance company is not going to compensate you for everything that they should, at least not without help. What do you do if you are not able to return to work? Do you get help with that? What if you need more care down the road? How do you predict that? This is when you want to talk to a brain injury attorney.

An attorney can help you file a brain injury lawsuit. Injury compensation from a successful lawsuit can then provide you with the necessary financial damages needed to pay for the best medical care available. Additionally, he or she must help you determine the lifelong challenges you will face when calculating a demand for compensation. If you are unable to work, you may qualify for disability benefits from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Our brain injury attorney can also seek wrongful death damages if you lost a loved one due to a fatal brain injury that took the life of your family member.
