According to the CDC, about 166 people die each day from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). These injuries can cause long-term symptoms and even disability, resulting in pain and suffering and time missed from work. As any experienced brain injury lawyer will tell you, TBIs can wreak havoc on people’s bank accounts in addition to their physical well-being.
A traumatic brain injury can easily result in huge medical bills. Unfortunately, many TBIs are caused by someone else’s negligence, in which case it can be all the more stressful to be caught holding the bill. Many people feel helpless in situations like these, especially if they don’t have any experience with legal matters.
But it’s important to know that if your TBI was caused by the fault of someone else, an experienced personal injury law firm might be able to help you fight for fair compensation that can offset the financial damage a serious injury like this can cause. Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to damages for things like:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
