Peoria, AZ Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys
Of all forms of injury that a victim can suffer in an accident, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most devastating. In suffering such an injury, any aspect of a victim’s ability to function normally can be impacted. In turn, life circumstances ranging from personal happiness to work capabilities to relationships can be severely damaged. Being afflicted with a TBI can bring sudden harm that may be felt for years.
Through years of representation for injury victims, the attorneys at The Husband & Wife Law Team have developed a thorough understanding of the causes and losses of these incidents. For information about how we can help you, please call The Husband & Wife Law Team at (623) 930-8064.
There are two main types of traumatic brain injuries: a closed head injury (caused by blunt force trauma) and an open head injury (caused by an object piercing the skull). Both of these can seriously injure a victim and result in a wide variety of losses. It is important to be aware of how you may be impacted by a TBI so that you can properly pursue all damages in your personal injury case.
Depending on the severity and type of injury, TBI victims can experience loss of physical, mental, and emotional capabilities, both in the short and long term. While results such as headache, dizziness, memory loss, and even coma can immediately occur, these can typically be quickly treated in lesser TBIs. However, long-term damage such as seizures, altered emotions, impaired mental capacity, and physical disabilities can severely change a victim’s life and may be difficult to heal.
In order for your losses to be eligible for compensation, a traumatic brain injury must be the result of another party’s actions, similar to all other personal injury accidents under Arizona law. For example, a reckless driver that injures an innocent victim in a car crash can be held liable and made to provide financial compensation for all losses that resulted. Through skilled legal representation, proof that the accident was the direct result of the at-fault party’s actions can be found and the legitimacy of the amount of compensation being sought can also be proven.
When searching for compensation for a TBI, it is important to remember to document all losses, what medical care was provided, and the cost of all losses that were a result of the accident. Additionally, future losses and medical care must be taken into account in order to gain compensation that will continue to aid you in your recovery. While at-fault parties will often try to avoid being held responsible, it is important to remember that insurance companies will provide the greatest opposition. These companies, and the lawyers they employ, will attempt to settle for the least amount of compensation possible and disprove your legitimate injuries. But through the use of a skilled personal injury attorney, you will have the chance to fight back against such tactics.
Should you suffer a brain injury due to the actions of another party, be aware of your rights and the benefits you may be able to claim for your losses. The Peoria personal injury attorneys at The Husband & Wife Law Team can provide you with the representation needed to make your injury claim a success.
