Traumatic brain injuries are mostly caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, attack by dogs, slip and fall accidents, and medical negligence. In some cases, TBI don’t arise from auto accidents alone; they arise from forms of medical negligence during surgery. For instance, a surgical instrument may be left in your body after surgery and can cause a brain injury.
Our brains are so sensitive that even the tiniest of forces generated from normal accidents are enough to change your life forever. In this blog post, we’ll have a look at brain injury and personal injury law. To find out more, kindly read along.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
TBI can be very difficult to prove because they are not visible to the naked eye. Another reason is that symptoms of TBI take long to manifest. Immediately after an accident, you should go for a medical examination to determine whether you have a brain injury. Also, seek legal counsel to give you the advice and guidance you need for you to get fully compensated. Imaging medical equipment such as ultrasound, MRI’s, and CAT scans are used during the medical examination. They provide a visual verification of your internal brain injuries.
Personal Injury Law
Whatever the causes of your brain injuries may be, relax. The personal injury lawyer will cover all the parties involved in the accident if they sustain brain injuries. The people deemed responsible for causing your brain injuries will be held responsible and they must compensate you financially so that you can settle your medical bills, wage loss, suffering, pain, mental anguish and much more. If have never been involved in an accident and you know nothing about personal injury law, our attorneys specialize in all types of brain injuries and will give you all the assistance that you need.
In case both the complainant and defendant are found to be negligent, the degree of negligence will be compared to ensure that the injured party can be compensated accordingly. The compensation may be reduced if the complainant is found negligent and is responsible for her or his injuries. For instance, if the complainant was supposed to receive $200,000 as compensation and he or she is found to be 20% negligent or responsible for the injuries, the compensation will be reduced by 20%.
