What to Do after a TBI in Marietta, GA

One of the most devastating things about brain injuries is that even a seemingly minor head or brain injury could have a serious impact on your life.

Seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine, a concussion or internal bleeding can cause incredible damage. Not only could you have injuries that may not be visibly seen, but waiting to get medical care could diminish your ability to be awarded full compensation.

Take photos if possible. Take as many photos and videos as possible of the accident scene, your injuries, and anything else you may find relevant. This can help document what happened and the effect a TBI had on your life.

Identify the parties involved. If you suffered a head injury in a car crash, try to get the other driver’s name and insurance information. If you suffered head trauma at work, have your employer’s information ready. You can also reach out to witnesses who may have seen what happened.

Reach out to an attorney. Once you have been deemed medically stable, call an experienced lawyer. The sooner you get an attorney working on your case, the better chance you have at full and fair compensation.

Brain Injury Signs and Treatments

People who have suffered traumatic brain injuries can display various signs and symptoms depending on which part of the brain has been affected. Some common signs you might see in someone who suffered a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Amnesia
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Lack of restraint
  • Difficulty communicating
  • Abnormal laughing or crying
  • Slurred speech
  • Blurred vision
  • Mental confusion
  • Inability to recognize people, places, or things
  • Failure to create new memories

These are only a few of the signs of a brain injury. Suppose you or someone you know was involved in an accident and exhibited any of the previously mentioned symptoms or any other signs of a head or brain injury. In that case, you must be seen by a healthcare provider as soon as possible.

The type of brain injury you sustained will often determine your treatment options. Some of the treatment options available for TBI victims include:

  • Diuretics
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Mental health counseling
  • Anger management
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Surgical intervention

Accidents That Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries

Under the worst of circumstances, a traumatic brain injury can occur in virtually any accident. With that said, some incidents see traumatic brain injuries more often than others.

Some accidents resulting in traumatic brain injuries include:

If you suffered a traumatic brain injury in an accident that was not described, that does not mean that you do not have grounds for a case. You should contact us to learn more about your situation and whether we can help.

Proving Fault in a Brain Injury Case

Your brain injury attorney will be responsible for approving negligence. To accomplish this, we need to prove the four elements of negligence, which include:

  • Duty of care
  • Breach of duty
  • Causation
  • Damages

Essentially, we’ll need to show that the accused party owed you a duty of care, that they breached that obligation, and caused you to suffer damages.

The type of accident you were involved in will largely determine how your attorney approaches establishing fault in your case. For example, if you were injured in a car accident, your attorney might begin looking for evidence of negligent driving. But if your traumatic brain injury stems from a slip and fall, we may approach the property owner to determine where they may have been negligent.

There is also a strong possibility that several parties share blame for your traumatic brain injuries. Only a thorough investigation will uncover the truth.

Damages Awarded in Brain Injury Lawsuits

There are multiple ways that you could seek compensation for head injuries. The two primary ways brain injury victims seek recovery are through insurance claims and filing a lawsuit.

What to Expect from the Insurance Company

Insurance companies will go to great lengths to reduce the amount that they will be required to compensate you. It is common for insurance companies to claim that the brain injury victim exaggerates or fakes their injuries.

Many insurance companies will also attempt to compensate for certain economic damages such as property damages or medical bills. But many victims’ lives are impacted in ways that are not financial.

Although insurance companies will frequently undervalue brain injury claims, your attorney can present the necessary evidence to convey the harm done and secure the maximum.

Compensatory & Exemplary Damages for TBIs

There are many situations where it may become necessary for you to pursue your case in civil court. One benefit of a brain injury lawsuit is recovering both compensatory and exemplary damages.

Compensatory damages refer to your economic and non-economic damages. Some common ones that you could be awarded for brain injuries include:

  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost income
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Loss of household services
  • Reputational damage
  • Property damage
  • Current and future medical expenses and equipment

Exemplary damages are different. Commonly referred to as punitive damages, the courts may award these damages if the liable party’s actions were reprehensible or grossly negligent. Punitive damages are designed to punish the culpable party beyond the compensatory damages you are entitled to, and as such, they may be awarded less often.

The best way to get a sense of what your specific brain injury claim might be worth is to speak with a lawyer.
