The Road to Recovery Can Be Long and Difficult for TBI Victims – Know Your Rights

TBI VictimsEach year, an estimated 1.7 million Americans experience a traumatic brain injury (TBI). While many of these individuals are treated and then recover in a short time-period, others suffer from severe and long-lasting complications. For these individuals, the road to recovery can be long and arduous. Thankfully, some victims may be entitled to compensation for the losses they experience. Learn more about pursuing damages for a brain injury, including how an attorney can assist with the process, with help from the following information.

TBI and Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the more common situations that may lead to a traumatic brain injury case. Most occur when the victim’s head makes impact with another structure, but even a jolt of the head can cause a brain injury. Pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists also tend to have a higher rate of head injury than vehicle drivers.

TBI After a Slip, Trip, or Fall

Brain injuries are exceptionally common in slip, trip, and fall cases. Victims of all ages are at risk, but children and the elderly are at an elevated risk for serious and lasting complications. If the slip, trip, or fall occurs at a nursing home, on the property of another person, or on the property of a business or government entity, the victim may be entitled to compensation.

TBIs in the Workplace

Workers who suffer a brain injury while on the job may be entitled to damages through the workers’ compensation system. In limited cases, there may also be the option for a third-party liability case. Ideally, this would provide the victim and their family a better settlement. Unfortunately, the pursuit of damages in such cases can be exceptionally difficult and complex.

TBI and Other Personal Injury Cases

Motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, and falls may be the most common types TBI personal injury cases, but they are not the only ones that provide victims with the right to pursue compensation. Situations involving defective consumer products, certain acts of violence, and various other instances may also pave the way for a personal injury suit.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
