Traumatic Brain Injury Case Types

It’s estimated that 2.8 million people in the US suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Of these, about 50,000 die, and around 282,000 are hospitalized. Falls and auto accidents are common reasons for head and traumatic brain injuries. Falls, including out of bed and down stairs, are the most common cause of TBI in older adults. These often happen as a result of nursing home negligence.

Children, young adults between 15-24, adults over 60, and men of all ages are at higher risk of TBI. TBI cases may include:

  • Violence, like assaults
  • Sports injuries, particularly from contact sports like football
  • Explosive blasts and other combat injuries
  • Penetrating wounds to the head
  • Shrapnel or debris hitting the head
  • Bodily collisions with objects for any reason

There are many types of accidents that cause traumatic brain injury. Whether you were injured in a car accident, from a fall, or in another situation, the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. can help.

Long Term Effect of Traumatic Brain Injury

The symptoms of long-lasting TBI challenges are varied, and can include everything from sensory symptoms to memory problems. TBI can also cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, mood changes, sleep disturbances, and many other difficulties. Many people with brain injuries initially receive treatment in the emergency room. If they seem to be recovering normally, they may be discharged. Sometimes symptoms of long-term problems don’t surface immediately, or are brushed off as temporary.

Your home life may suffer if a TBI causes mood or sleep problems. Outpatient therapy may fill up a large chunk of your time. Emotional disturbances or communication problems may make it hard to spend time with friends and family. Any of these difficulties, plus others like speech and concentration problems, may leave you unable to work or go to school.

Depending on the kind of symptoms you have, you may need to see several doctors to get a diagnosis and treatment for chronic problems from a TBI. You may need many expensive tests, like MRIs or CT scans, or evaluation by more than one kind of specialist. Once you receive a diagnosis, you may need to see a variety of specialists for your specific challenges, from rehabilitation specialists to neuropsycholigists.

Other injuries that may coincide with a head or traumatic brain injury may include, but are not limited to:

  • Broken Neck
  • Paralysis
  • Severe Burns
  • Permanent Sensory Deprivation (Vision, Hearing, etc)

Because it can affect so many things from work to socializing, a TBI can turn your life upside down. When it happens, you may have to deal with repeating hospital and doctor visits. You may miss weeks or months of work, and might even become permanently unable to work. This is happening while insurance companies try to minimize the compensation they pay out.

Liability & Damage Recovery

There are many ways the negligence of others can contribute to TBIs. A nursing home’s negligence may lead to an elderly person falling and hitting their head. A careless driver could cause an accident that alters your life forever. Any kind of obstacle that causes you to trip and fall in a public place can be another cause.

If the negligence of another has caused you a TBI or other injury, they are then liable for bodily injury that takes place as a result of their negligence. If you or a loved one have suffered a head or traumatic brain injury, contact the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb, P.A. We may be able to help you secure the compensation that you are entitled to.

There are several kinds of damages that may be awarded in a head and traumatic brain injury lawsuit. These include:

  • Future damages, like loss of income and future medical costs
  • Compensatory damages, for things like pain and suffering, disability, and mental anguish
  • Hospital and Other Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Hedonic damages, for loss of enjoyment of life (many people who suffer TBIs develop depression as a result)
  • Punitive damages, which are awarded when the defendant’s actions were especially reckless events that cause head or brain injuries may also cause additional difficulties.
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Costs of Future Care

Insurance company representatives may be uninformed about the many complications of TBI, or they may just want to reduce the company’s payout for your claim. Insurance agents and adjusters work on behalf of the insurance company and are not concerned with what is best for their injured clients. They often don’t understand all the potentials results of a TBI, and will claim no responsibility on their client’s part. It is important that you never agree to or accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first speaking with an experienced head and traumatic brain personal injury attorney.
