Negligence Can Cause Serious Brain Injuries
In any day to day activity, catastrophic danger could be present if people fail to act responsibly. A single blow to the head can lead to lifelong damage. If you have suffered a brain injury caused by someone else’s carelessness, you could stand to win a significant financial recovery that helps pay for medical bills, lost wages, and any other special treatments you might need.
Common accidents and mistakes that can result in debilitating brain injuries include:
- Birth injuries
- Boating collisions
- Car accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle accidents
- Premises liability cases
How Can You Tell if a Head Injury is Mild or Severe?
Even if you have only been in a minor accident or did not notice any significant injury at the time of the incident, you could still be suffering from a brain injury and not know it. Not all of the effects are immediately noticeable and many could be subtle yet damaging. After people have been hit in the head or experienced painful whiplash, they tend to report symptoms that could indicate a serious brain injury, such as:
- Difficulty balancing
- Dizziness (vertigo)
- Inability to focus or concentrate
- Temporary loss of a sense (blindness or deafness)
If you believe you are suffering from a brain injury that might have been caused by another person’s negligence, you need to hold them accountable for what they have done.
How Long Does It Take for a Brain Injury to Show Up?
One of the things that can make brain injuries difficult to diagnose is that victims don't always show signs immediately. For some people, brain injuries can become apparent within 24 hours of the accident, while others may not begin to show symptoms for days or even weeks after their accident. No matter how serious your accident was, you should always visit a doctor so that they can rule out serious brain damage and continue to monitor you for signs of a TBI over the next several weeks.
What is the Average Settlement for a Traumatic Brain Injury?
TBI settlements will often vary depending on the exact circumstances and long-lasting effects of your injuries. Mild traumatic brain injury settlements may be lower than extreme injury cases, but they still seek to provide compensation for the following types of damages:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages or income
- Ongoing therapy or treatment
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship or enjoyment of life
Some victims may also be able to pursue compensation for specialized equipment or adaptive technology to help improve their quality of life if they have suffered permanent physical disability as a result of their injuries. No matter the extent of your injuries, you are not in this alone. Gill Law Group is here to help get you the compensation you need.
