Experiencing a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a challenging event for the person suffering the injury. It can be just as challenging for that individual’s family or loved ones. Washington brain injury lawyer is ready to help you through this demanding time.
TBIs pose a significant risk as they can cause severe cognitive and communication problems, disabilities and even death. A TBI can be caused by any force to the head, whether it is merely a bump, blow or an injury that causes penetration.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than one million people are affected by some form of TBI every year. The CDC notes that one-third of injury-related deaths are due to complications from brain damage.
Insurance companies are quick to file claims and settle fast because they know these cases are costly and, in reality, are much more severe than they want to admit. Insurance settlements often do not cover the entirety of finances. Some brain injury victims have lost past and future income as they may be unable to carry out the work they had previously performed.
The price you pay from suffering a TBI is staggering when you consider the amount of medical bills that pile up from treating brain damage. This is why it is essential to contact a brain injury lawyer to find out whether your case qualifies for a lawsuit. These circumstances require extensive expertise in both the medical and legal fields. Our law firm will evaluate your situation and gather all necessary facts.
