Recovering Compensation For Brain Injury Victims And Their Families
If a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), your entire family has most likely been affected. Because the symptoms of TBI can be cognitive, physical and emotional, you may be living with a different person than the one you knew before the injury occurred. They may not be able to work. They may require assistance or round-the-clock care.
Your family will need considerable compensation for your losses and hardships. The Law Offices of Fred D. Crawford, IV, represents brain injury victims and their families. We understand that this is a difficult time and that you may be unsure about the future. With our attorney’s help, your family can begin to look ahead and move forward.
We Understand That A TBI Is Life-Changing
Many types of accidents cause TBI. It could be a direct blow to the head, as from a falling accident or falling object. It could be an indirect blow that causes the brain to strike the inside of the skull, such as the whiplash action in a car crash. Or it could be caused by oxygen deprivation, such as a near-drowning.
Any trauma to the brain can result in serious or permanent disruption of neurological function. It affects the victim in many ways, including:
- Headaches, blurred vision or ringing ears
- Problems with balance, vertigo or walking
- Speech impairment or cognitive deficits
- Short-term memory loss or inability to concentrate
- Depression and anxiety
- Personality change, mood swings or outbursts
TBI compensation may need to cover aftereffects such as physical and occupational therapy, nursing care, loss of income and pain and suffering. Some people recover some or all of their brain function. Some have permanent disabilities and care needs. We have a good track record with recovering compensation for severe and permanent injuries. We carefully document all the ways that life has changed for the worse and consider all future medical and financial needs.
