Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are not typical injuries suffered in an accident because they don’t always appear immediately after the accident. Brain injuries can take months to heal, and even then permanent damage may remain, leaving a person mildly or severely disabled as a result. In fact, the result of a traumatic brain injury can be profound, leaving someone unable to take care of their children, take care of themselves, hold down a job or even enjoy life.
These brain injuries should not be treated lightly and, at Salam & Associates, PC, we take traumatic brain injury very seriously. Salam & Associates, PC has handled numerous brain injury cases over the years and our attorneys understand the additional care and attention these types of personal injury cases require. The serious nature of these cases is why we are willing to drop everything to give individuals and families the attention they need to cope with their new reality.
We Understand Your Needs and How to Address Them
Because of our extensive experience handling a variety of catastrophic injuries cases, we fully understand the short- and long-term effects of a brain injury. You may experience:
• Speech difficulties
• Difficulty understanding language
• Changes to your personality
• Partial or total loss of motor functions
• Difficulty sleeping, eating or performing bodily functions
• Loss of thought processing skills
• Loss of mental capacity
• Difficulty with coordination and balance
• Chronic headaches
• Vision problems
All of these issues could lead to the need for:
• Lifelong care
• Extensive medical treatment
• Frequent MRI and CT scans
• Frequent trips to physicians and hospitals
• Long-term prescriptions
• Short- and long-term physical therapy
• In-home care
The cost of a brain injury is not simply measured in economic damages. Pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment and loss of ability to work are all noneconomic damages that can be sought in a personal injury lawsuit.
Our lawyers know what to look for when seeking compensation for a brain injury. We will look at all avenues for compensation, including all applicable insurance policies, and even look to the at-fault party to recover damages when necessary. You are not alone in this fight.
