Working To Recover The Compensation Brain Injury Victims Need
Brain injuries are dangerous for many reasons, including the difficulty of making a timely diagnosis. Many people are unaware that they have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) because it may not have caused a loss of consciousness. Other symptoms such as headaches, confusion or blurry vision may not appear for weeks. By that time, patients and doctors may not connect the symptoms with the initial trauma.
If you or a family member has suffered a TBI, it is critical to get immediate medical care and to speak with an attorney. At Christina Rivenbark & Associates, we represent TBI victims and their families. For a free consultation with a Wilmington serious injury lawyer, please call 910-338-9813, or contact us online.
Consequences Of Mild, Moderate And Severe TBI
Mild TBI and concussions can cause physical, cognitive and emotional problems, which may prevent TBI victims from working or participating in social activities. Long-term medical treatment and care may be necessary for victims of moderate and severe TBI. Victims and their families will need significant compensation to cover past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and needs such as rehabilitation. In wrongful death cases, we also seek damages for funeral expenses and compensation for the loss of a loved one.
Any accident that causes a blow to the head or body can injure the brain. Accidents that often result in brain injuries may include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Premises liability accidents
