Traumatic Brain Injury: Frequently Asked Questions
One of the most vulnerable parts of our body in an accident is the brain, perhaps THE most vital organ in the body. When the brain is damaged in an accident, the effect can last a lifetime. Traumatic brain injury is one of the most serious types of injuries that can result from an accident.
When you suffer a catastrophic brain injury, it is common to be riddled with a variety of questions. It is easy to get overwhelmed, especially if your questions are not properly answered. Although most of your questions can be best answered by an experienced personal injury attorney, below are general answers to commonly asked questions after suffering a traumatic brain injury in an accident caused by another party.
What are the common symptoms of a traumatic brain injury?
The signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not be so obvious, especially in the early stages of the injury. If you were involved in an accident and experience any of the following symptoms, you may have suffered a brain injury and should immediately consult with a physician:
- Memory problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Heightened anxiety
- Exhibit unusual behavior
- Difficulty speaking
- Have a seizure
I sustained a brain injury in an accident caused by another party. What should I do next?
One of the most important steps to take is to hire a personal injury attorney who has significant experience in handling brain injury claims and lawsuits. During your hiring and selection process, it is important to ask prospective attorneys what TBI cases they have handled, their success rate in handling those cases, and what involvements they have with brain injury organizations, if any.
I have suffered permanent damages as a result of my brain injury; what will an attorney do for me?
The permanent nature of your traumatic brain injury makes hiring a good attorney to file legal action even more imperative. A good lawyer can help you seek full compensation for the cost of your medical treatment, lifelong care, and other necessary services, while holding the liable party responsible for his or her negligence.
How will my attorney prove my damages?
In order to prove the full extent of your injuries and your damages, your traumatic brain injury attorney will need to hire experts, including doctors, life care planners, neurologists, neuropsychologists, and even economists to testify on your behalf in court. A resourceful lawyer will also seek the testimony of your co-workers, friends and family.
