Euless Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers 

Helping Victims Receive Compensation

There is no such thing as a good injury. Every injury has the possibility of being our last or of drastically altering the course of the rest of our lives. But almost no type of injury is more upsetting than a traumatic brain injury.

Traumatic brain injuries are scary because they typically represent a huge shift in our lives. The cost of dealing with injuries of this kind can easily grow to be astronomical due to the need for ongoing support, medical treatment, and physical or emotional therapy. These all cost money, money that is harder to get since a traumatic brain injury can greatly impact your earning capacity.

If you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury, then contact The Wolf of Law Street to learn more about how an experienced attorney can help you to get the compensation that you deserve.

What Makes a Traumatic Brain Injury Worse than Any Other Injury?

Traumatic brain injuries can arise out of an accident where you strike your head. This could be a drunk driving accident or a case of slip and fall. Clearly, the first kind of accident sounds a lot worse than a simple slip and fall, but the accident itself barely matters. Most of us have fallen many times, only walking away with bruises.

But if you land the wrong way, you can do serious damage to your brain. Considering how important your brain is, that’s a real bad situation to find yourself in.

When you break your arm, you see a doctor, and you have it set. After a few weeks or months, the body manages to heal itself, and you have a working arm again. It might lack some of the mobility that it previously had, but it will typically heal back to a high degree of functionality.

With a traumatic brain injury, this might never happen. The brain is able to heal itself, and there are different therapies that can help to reduce damage or work on the concept of neuroplasticity to help you heal. But this doesn’t mean that your functionality will end up the same.

Many that suffer traumatic brain injuries lose elements of themselves that can’t be replaced. People have lost the ability to create new memories, recognize the people they love, to be able to speak coherently, and have issues with mobility arising from the brain’s inability to send the right signals through the body.

While many of the worst issues that arise from traumatic brain injuries can be addressed through therapy, medical support, educational programs, and support groups, each of these will take time, and none of them are perfect. The chances are good that those who have suffered injuries of this kind will have to deal with the ramifications of their injuries for the rest of their lives. This costs a lot of money, money that shouldn’t be your responsibility when your injury was caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness.

What Compensation is Available to Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury due to another’s negligence can absolutely seek compensation for what they’ve been forced to experience. There are a number of damages which you could seek to recover.

Specific damages that you may be able to recover include:

  • Past medical care
  • Future medical care
  • Past lost wages
  • Predicted future lost wages
  • Necessary repairs, such as damaged property
  • Renovations are required due to your condition
  • Modifications to your home or vehicle
  • Replacement of damaged property that can’t be repaired

These are specific damages because it is possible to calculate a specific amount of money necessary to cover them. Keep in mind, however, that this is always an estimate in a way because we can’t accurately predict the future.

You may be able to recover general damages such as:

  • Physical pain
  • Suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Permanent disability
  • Loss of consortium

It’s also important to take into account the way your insurance company is going to want to treat your injury. They’re going to try to move quickly to make you an offer. Their hope is that you’ll accept a quick offer rather than try to fight for what you actually deserve. Their quick offer is always going to be far undervalued compared to what you should be getting. This is because they are a business, and their focus is on making money; paying claims means money is leaving the company, and they don’t want that.

Don’t let your insurance company trick you into accepting a lousy payout.

Who Can Be Found Liable for a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Determining which party is liable for a traumatic brain injury can be difficult. There are a number of parties that could be involved and responsibility may be shared between several of them. However, there are some cases where it is easy to tell who is responsible.

When your traumatic brain injury arises from an accident, it seems fairly easy to say who was responsible. After all, if you were hit by a truck, then it would be the truck driver. Right?

Well, not necessarily. It could be that the trucking company didn’t maintain their vehicles to the appropriate standard. So it may not be the driver’s fault but the company’s. It may also be a combination of both.

Parties that can be liable following a traumatic brain injury include:

  • In most cases, the driver would be found to be liable
  • The owner of a vehicle could be liable if they lend their car to a friend who then got into an accident
  • Employers are typically responsible for the injuries that their employees suffer while on the job
  • The landowner or tenant of a premise may be held responsible for injuries like slip and falls that occurred because of their failure to maintain a safe premise
  • Manufacturers can be held liable when injuries are caused by their manufacturing, transportation, or retailing of a defective product
