A brain injury can result in a myriad of symptoms, depending on the type of damage and the affected area. Two people can suffer a seemingly similar brain injury and experience completely different symptoms.
After traumatic brain injuries, prognoses vary. Some people will make close to a full recovery while others may lose any number of abilities including speech, comprehension, memory, and motor function. Brain injuries can change the way a person thinks and feels. Someone may have a different personality after suffering a brain injury.
These injuries can disrupt lives permanently. An injury victim may lose the ability to work, to live independently, or to maintain relationships with loved ones. A personal injury claim can’t take away the pain and suffering you endure, but it can provide financial support to cover past, current, and future losses associated with the injury. For those who require long-term care, a civil claim can mean the difference between financial hardship and security over a lifetime.
According to the UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Peter O’Donnel Jr. Brain Institute, located in Mesquite, the most common causes of TBIs are falls, car accidents, and violent encounters. Each of these incidents can cause mild, recoverable injuries or serious and life threatening injuries in the brain.
Consider the situation to determine if someone else is liable for yours or a loved one’s brain injury. If the injury would not have occurred if others involved had behaved in a normal and reasonable manner, you likely have a valid legal claim against the wrongdoers.
Property owners are responsible for addressing known hazards. Drivers are responsible for following the rules of the road. Companies are responsible for designing, manufacturing, and marketing safe products. Everyone is responsible for respecting the personal space of others. When these and other parties breach their duty and contribute to serious head injuries, they are financially responsible for the aftermath.
