Traumatic Brain Injuries Are One of the Worst Injuries a Person Can Suffer
There is no way around it: One of the worst possible injuries a person can suffer is a traumatic brain injury in a car accident. It often happens as a result of the brain being thrust into the skull due to the impact of the accident. This can damage or even destroy the delicate tissue of the brain. TBIs are also often the result of an object piercing the skull and then the brain.
The brain is in charge of almost all body functions, which means that when the brain is injured the results can be catastrophic. When brain nerves are damaged or destroyed a person can lose motor function, become weak, have issues with balance, lose their ability to speak, lose their memory, not be able to understand speech, and be unable to concentrate.
TBIs can also lead to a loss of sensation including hearing, touch, sight, perception, and even reaction to pain. Finally, a person can experience the impairment of their emotions and experience serious personality changes, depression, aggression, lack of impulse control, and anxiety. This is all assuming that the person survives the TBI.
The Right Attorney Can Help You Find the Right Compensation for TBI
From a legal perspective, one of the hardest things about TBI injuries is the fact that it can be very difficult to find the right level of compensation. You need an attorney who has experience with these specific types of cases. Why? Because you need not just past medical bills but estimated future medical bills. If your loved one has suffered a significant injury, then we may need to determine the loss of future income as well.
You love your loved one and you do not want to think about their injury in terms of dollars and cents. We understand this. We understand that you are dealing with a very difficult, emotional situation and the last thing you want to worry about is how much money your family will lose. However, there will come the point when you need the funds you are owed, whether to pay medical bills or to keep the mortgage current.
The right attorney can work on this for you so that you can concentrate on finding the best possible way forward. Contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 now for a free legal consutlation.
