Traumatic brain injury victims can suffer from a wide range of symptoms that revolve around the severity of the initial incident, how quickly they received medical care and the effectiveness of the medical treatment.
Those who sustain relatively minor brain injuries often referred to as concussions, are likely to make a full recovery with very few lasting symptoms.

TBIs are serious and often life-altering injuries that can have a significant impact on a victim’s physical, emotional, and financial well-being. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI as the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to seek compensation for the damages you have suffered.
You can seek compensation by filing a claim with the insurance of the negligent party who caused your injuries. If their insurer won’t offer a fair settlement, or if they don’t have insurance, you also have the option of pursuing damages in court by filing a lawsuit.
There are several types of compensation that may be available to a TBI victim. These can include:
In order to seek compensation for a TBI, you will typically need to prove that the injury was the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. This may involve demonstrating that the person or entity responsible had a duty of care to you, that they breached this duty, and that their breach caused your injury.
If you have suffered a TBI and are considering seeking compensation, it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can help you understand your legal options and assist you in pursuing the compensation you deserve.
