Traumatic Brain Injury
Those who survive a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can struggle with consequences that last a few days or the rest of their lives. TBI effects can include impairments related to thinking or memory, movement, sensation (e.g., vision or hearing loss), or emotional functioning (e.g., personality changes, depression). These issues affect individuals but also can have lasting effects on families and communities.
The personal injury attorneys at Rudman Winchell help Traumatic Brain Injury victims and their families recover their financial footing after life-altering accidents. We will work diligently to pursue compensation for those injured in accidents caused by the negligence of others.
Common Causes of a Traumatic Brain Injury
- Falls – Falls account for almost half (48%) of all TBI-related emergency department visits.
- Assault – Being struck by or against an object was the second leading cause of TBI-related ED visits, accounting for about 17% of all TBI-related ED visits.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents – Vehicle crashes are the leading causes of all TBI-related hospitalizations (52%). Whether Car, Truck, or Motorcycle, if you have a head injury resulting from someone else’s negligence, it can cause a lengthy, expensive hospitalization.
Brain damage may leave a victim unable to work or even perform daily tasks. Personality changes can cause major stress at home, sometimes tearing families apart. You may be able to secure compensation to cover the costs associated with Traumatic Brain Injury if you or someone you love has been injured in an accident caused by someone else being negligent.
