When a person sustains a traumatic brain injury (TBI), the medical consequences can range from mild discomfort and few days of rest to long-term and debilitating complications. Because it is difficult to determine the long term complications of TBI, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to determine whether someone else could be held liable for your injuries. TBIs can often result in medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, or loss of enjoyment of life, and these types of injuries may entitle a person to recover compensation from the responsible party or parties. In order to determine whether you have a claim, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced TBI attorney immediately. The personal injury attorneys of the Law Offices of Shane Smith are ready to help you and will provide a no-cost case evaluation.
According to the CDC, motor vehicle accidents are the second highest cause of traumatic brain injuries, causing 17.3% of all TBIs. Only falls account for more TBIs, causing 35.2% of all of these injuries. Because of the potentially high speeds and heavy machinery involved in motor vehicle accidents, TBIs caused in these types of accidents can often be very serious and may cause long term complications. Some of the kinds of motor vehicle accidents that can lead to traumatic brain injury accidents include the following:
Because the outcomes of traumatic brain injuries are not often apparent, it is important to undergo a full medical evaluation immediately after an accident as well as consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. Even if you were partially responsible for the accident that caused your injury, you may still be entitled to recover for your injuries.
