Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most devastating injuries. Why? It’s easy to see. The brain is your body’s command center, controlling your thoughts, movement, and ability to understand the world. This vital organ is a life-changing organ.
According to the severity of a TBI, the lifetime costs can range anywhere from $85,000 to $3 million. TBI victims often have difficulty finding work after their injury.
A TBI can cause a wide range of financial and emotional damages. Medical costs and lost wages are just a few. A traumatic injury lawyer at Tenina Law will help you get the compensation that you deserve if you have suffered a head injury. Contact us or call today to receive a free consultation.
What is Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), also known as a brain injury, is caused by a blow, bump, or jolt to the head. This disrupts the normal functioning of the brain. Concussions and other mild TBIs can cause temporary issues. A severe TBI, on the other hand, can drastically alter a person’s course of life. It may cause permanent disabilities, cognitive impairment, or even death.
Can I Sue for a TBI After a Car Accident?
The most common cause of traumatic head injury is motor vehicle accidents. If someone else was responsible for your injury, then you will have different legal options.
Imagine that you’re driving down I-210, Pasadena. A driver speeds up and hits you. You suffer a TBI after your head hits the dashboard. You could be partially or fully liable for the injuries you sustained if another driver is at fault.
Let’s imagine that you were drunk and got behind the wheel after a night out. You were driving drunk when you hit another car, then a branch. If you were to suffer a TBI, the chances of receiving compensation would be greatly reduced, or even eliminated, depending on other circumstances.
You need a California traumatic injury lawyer, in either case, to evaluate your claim and determine whether a TBI lawsuit or settlement is possible. Your compensation will depend on your involvement in the accident and whether or not you have legal representation to defend yourself from unfair accusations of fault.
