Components of a Brain Injury Lawsuit
A brain injury can stem from a variety of sources. Some are caused by medical negligence, where a healthcare professional breaches their duty of care by performing an unnecessary or dangerous operation or by ignoring an obvious issue in their patient. These types of accidents must directly lead to the injury, and cause damage to the victim’s person or finances.
Brain injuries can also come about as a result of car accidents, where negligent motorists have the potential to seriously damage you.
How TBI Can Affect You
TBI can be a life-changing disease, and affect you in a variety of ways. This includes:
- Headaches and difficulty concentrating
- Personality changes
- Psychological changes
- Loss of memory
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Some of TBI’s most insidious changes are barely noticeable, and can leave you scrambling for answers and justice.
Types of Cases We Handle
Our attorneys handle brain injury cases of the following types:
Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents: Traumatic brain injury’s leading cause is car accidents in people aged 15 to 44. These accidents occur when drivers fail to heed the rules of the road.
Medical Malpractice/Birth Injury: If a healthcare professional deviates from the expectations of the medical community and causes an injury at birth or during a surgery.
Work Accidents: Workplace accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries, where negligence can leave victims with significant damage to the brain.
