Serious Accidents with Brain Injury

August 25, 2015

One of the most devastating injuries that may happen in a slip-and-fall or vehicle accident is traumatic brain injury. Serious accidents resulting in brain damage are obviously extremely difficult on the victims, but they are also particularly difficult for the families and friends of the victims as they adjust to the changes they may see in their loved one. Proving a brain injury case is no easy task. Lawyers with limited experience and resources should not handle complex brain injury cases. It will often take a team of experienced attorneys to obtain a good settlement or verdict in a complex case.

Serious Accidents and TBI

According to the Centers for Disease Control, traumatic brain injury was a diagnosis in more than 280,000 hospitalizations and 2.2 million emergency room visits in 2010. In the past decade, rates of  brain injury visits to the emergency room increased by 70%. From 2006–2010, falls were the leading cause of brain damage, accounting for 40% of all brain injury cases. As you might suspect, falls are more likely to occur in the very young, or in our senior adult population. Among all age groups, motor vehicle crashes were the third overall leading cause of serious brain damage.

When you or a loved one experiences a serious accident with traumatic brain injury, the symptoms can be wide ranging. Some people experience no outward symptoms at all. The injury completely debilitates others. Whether it was a slip-and-fall, car accident, or other accident, you may have a valid claim. The responsible party must pay for your expenses, and for pain and suffering. The smart move is to hire a team of attorneys with experience in brain injury cases. Everyone wants their case to settle and settle quickly, but one strategy to make that happen is to use a law firm with a reputation and willingness to try their cases. When the insurance company knows a trial is a very real possibility, settlement may come more smoothly and quickly, when the facts of your case support it.
