A traumatic brain injury usually results from a significant blow to the head or jolt to the body. The blow or jolt causes the brain to violently move around inside your skull, causing damage to the brain tissue permanently. Traumatic brain injuries can range from moderate to severe and result in mild cognitive dysfunction, physical impairment, or even death. You or a loved one may be suffering from a brain injury if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms it is imperative to seek medical attention immediately. If you leave a brain injury untreated, it can result in death.
You shouldn’t have to pay for costly therapies and surgeries for a brain injury caused by someone else. A skilled brain injury lawyer can help you seek financial compensation from the party that caused your injury. There are two ways to seek recovery for a brain injury.
If your brain injury occurred during a car accident, a Seattle brain injury lawyer can assist you in recovering from the at-fault party’s vehicle insurance company. Dealing with an insurance company can be stressful and an attorney can handle all negotiations on your behalf. Insurance companies know that you’re in a vulnerable state and will take advantage of that to deny your claim or talk you into taking a lower settlement amount than you deserve.
Here’s the catch, Washington only requires drivers to carry insurance coverage well below the amount you may have to pay for brain injury recovery. Washington only requires the following minimum insurance coverage:
An at-fault party’s insurance company will do everything they can to convince you to take a lower insurance settlement. With the help of a knowledgeable brain injury attorney, you can recover from the at-fault party’s insurance for more than you would have on your own. A Seattle brain injury lawyer can also help you file a personal injury action against the at-fault driver to recover economic and non-economic damages including lost wages, disability payments, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and much more.
You can pursue a civil action for negligence or personal injury against the at-fault party. An attorney can counsel you through the complex court process. A skilled attorney will help you develop a case that will win you the highest financial compensation award possible. Damage awards are intended to return you to how you were before the accident through financial compensation.
Brain injuries can occur in any number of situations. The most common are the following:
Brain injuries can occur in any situation involving contact with your head. The second leading cause for traumatic brain injuries are car accidents. It is imperative to wear your seatbelt when in a vehicle to reduce the chance of suffering from a brain injury if you are involved in a vehicle collision.
Treatment following the diagnosis of a traumatic brain injury will depend on the extent of your brain injury. You or a loved one could experience a variety of treatments and therapies in the hours, days, weeks, and even months following your diagnosis.
Unlike other injuries from car accidents, brain injury recovery could last a lifetime. On average, brain injury recovery costs $85,000 – $3,000,000 over the lifetime of a patient. Many people who suffer a brain injury can no longer work or no longer work in the job they had before the accident. It can be stressful trying to figure out how to financially recover from a car accident, let alone facing a lifetime of recovery and up to 7-figures worth of medical and rehabilitation bills.
