Your brain is among the most important organs in your body. When it’s injured, the consequences can be very serious.
Have you sustained a brain injury in an accident that was the result of someone else’s carelessness? If so, strongly consider reviewing your case with a Chester County, PA traumatic brain injury attorney at The Weitz Firm, LLC. You may be eligible for financial compensation. We can help you recover what you may be owed.
A person may sustain a traumatic brain injury for several potential reasons. The following are among the more common:
Essentially, a traumatic brain injury can be the result of any serious blow to the head. Although this is not always the case, it is not uncommon for someone to sustain a traumatic brain injury as a result of another’s negligence.
For example, perhaps you’re involved in a car accident because a driver sped through a red light and struck your vehicle. If this experience leaves you with a traumatic brain injury, the driver of the vehicle that struck you would be considered negligent.
Although Pennsylvania’s no-fault insurance policies dictate that a car accident victim’s own insurance should compensate them for their medical bills and related losses regardless of who caused their accident, because a traumatic brain injury will often be fairly serious, a victim may also have the option of filing an additional claim or lawsuit against the negligent driver.
That’s just one example. If you’re not sure whether the nature of the accident that caused your injury gives you reason to file a claim or lawsuit in pursuit of compensation, schedule a case review with a Chester County traumatic brain injury lawyer for more information.
The symptoms of traumatic brain injuries can be very wide-ranging. Common examples of short-term symptoms include (but are not limited to):
See a doctor right away if you experience any of these symptoms. You should always see a doctor immediately after sustaining a blow to the head, regardless of whether you believe you’ve been injured.
Potential long-term symptoms of traumatic brain injuries may include:
These long-term symptoms can have a profound impact on one’s quality of life. Such difficulties add to the financial woes one may experience as a result of sustaining a traumatic brain injury, which can include medical bills, lost wages, the cost of regular care, and more.
