If you or a loved one has suffered from a TBI, our Dallas law firm may be able to help you recover compensation.
Every year, an estimated 2.4 million children and adults in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI). While these injuries have many different causes, we’ve seen that serious auto accidents are a frequently cause of TBIs.
Traumatic Brain Injury is extremely serious given the fact that it can lead to life-long disability. What is even more concerning is that it’s not always easy to gauge the extent of the injury until after many weeks or months have passed. Because of this, it’s important to seek medical treatment for your TBI way before you start speaking with the insurance company.
By seeking the services of an experienced Dallas-area personal injury attorney right away, you will be shielded from the other side’s insurance adjusters while treating, and you will know exactly what to expect going forward.
There are various ways one can sustain a brain injury. Here are a few examples:
- A slip and fall injury leading to head trauma
- Whiplash via a car accident
- Birth injury sustained as a result of negligence
- Medical malpractice
- Concussions caused by sudden impact.
The brain governs all the body’s processes. Damage to one region can cause far-reaching consequences which can alter a person’s behavior, personality or their ability to live an independent life. When something like this happens, you need adequate compensation given the amount of therapy as well as continuous treatment you will need for extended periods of time.
There are a few symptoms which may point to serious brain injury after an accident. These include:
- Personality changes
- Vision problems
- Behavioral and emotional problems
A traumatic brain injury may also be classified as “focal” or “diffuse.” This simply means that it may affect only one part of the brain or the whole brain in its entirety.
Insurance companies are in the business of minimizing their losses. They may downplay your injuries or try to use underhanded tactics in order to get you to settle for a meager sum of money in exchange for your giving up your right to sue. If they know you were seriously injured, their number one priority is to settle your case before you’re able to find out the full extent of such an injury. It’s important to only speak to your personal injury attorney and refuse to sign anything that you’re presented from insurance companies.
