What To Do After A Serious Head Injury
Few injuries are more serious and complicated than a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Our injury team at Clark | Martino, has extensive experience helping clients pursue the compensation they need and deserve after they or a family member suffers a head injury. We understand that the road to recovery can be long, and we know you need a team that will seek the financial resources that these injuries – and the recovery from them – requires.
How Do TBIs Happen?
See a medical doctor immediately if a loved one is in an accident that involved hitting or hurting their head. A TBI is not that uncommon and can happen in many different ways. A fall from a height while working or doing construction, a car or motorcycle accident or a botched medical procedure can all cause brain injuries. Other accidents that cause TBIs include:
- Car crashes and motorcycle accidents
- Boating and swimming accidents
- Medical malpractice (during childbirth, surgery, medication, etc.)
- Chiropractic manipulation
- Slip-and-falls in public places such as restaurants or shopping areas
- Sporting incidents
Brain injuries can occur in all age groups, including when a baby is still in the womb. From mild to moderate to severe, brain injuries vary in their damage. Unfortunately, some impairments can be permanent.
What To Look For After A Head Injury
The insidious thing about brain injuries is that they are not always immediately evident. The symptoms, at first, can seem tame, such as a headache, nausea or dizziness. But other issues usually arise, such as slurred speech or trouble remembering. Any of these can be signs of a serious injury. Physical changes can also happen, such as trouble with coordination. Our team of attorneys has worked with brain injury patients. We’ve seen firsthand how brain injuries differ from person to person and know when to pursue compensation. We also know how much care will be needed, how long it could take to recover and what a case like yours is typically worth. We’ve recovered over $300 million for our injured clients. You pay us nothing unless we take your case and win a settlement or verdict for you.
