Traumatic Brain Injury

Your Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to an accident or negligence, you understand the profound impact it can have on your life. Traumatic brain injuries can lead to significant physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges, affecting daily activities, relationships, and overall well-being. At Marko Law Firm, we are dedicated to providing expert legal representation for victims of traumatic brain injuries caused by accidents, medical malpractice, and more.

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain sustains damage from a sudden blow, jolt, or penetrating object. These injuries can result from accidents such as car crashes, falls, sports injuries, workplace incidents, and medical errors. Traumatic brain injuries can range from mild concussions to severe injuries that lead to long-term cognitive impairment or even permanent disability. Disruption in the normal function of the brain may result from:

  • Damage to the structural integrity of the skull.
  • Damage to brain tissue due to violent movement.
  • Injuries where the brain tissue is penetrated.

TBIs range from minor to severe, leading to varying symptoms and prognosis. Mild traumatic brain injuries generally result in temporary impacts before a full recovery is made. More severe TBIs, however, can result in bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and other physical damage that leads to lasting problems or even death.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injury Claims We Handle

Our experienced attorneys at Marko Law Firm handle various types of traumatic brain injury claims, including:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: Car accidents, truck collisions, and motorcycle crashes that result in traumatic brain injuries due to head trauma or violent impacts. In the United States, motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of brain injuries, ranging from moderate to severe. 
  • Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents: Pedestrians and cyclists are highly vulnerable near roadways. Collisions involving pedestrians and bicycles often lead to severe head injuries due to the force of impact.
  • Birth Injury: Infant brain damage can occur during childbirth due to natural causes or negligence. Common causes of birth injury TBIs include excessive forceps use or oxygen deprivation.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents: Falls on hazardous surfaces or premises, leading to head injuries that result in traumatic brain injuries.
  • Sports and Recreational Injuries: Traumatic brain injuries sustained during sports, recreational activities, or events due to head impacts or collisions.
  • Workplace Injuries: On-the-job accidents that cause head trauma, such as falls from heights, machinery accidents, or construction incidents.
  • Medical Malpractice: Cases where medical negligence or errors lead to traumatic brain injuries during surgery, anesthesia administration, or medical treatments.

Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injuries

Obtaining compensation for a traumatic brain injury (TBI) resulting from another party's negligence is crucial for both you and your family. The aftermath of such injuries often involves mounting bills, stress, and an uncertain future. If your TBI is severe, extended unemployment might be a reality. Apart from covering medical expenses, the compensation you deserve may encompass:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes past, current, and future medical costs, ranging from surgeries, therapies, medications, and assistive devices to cognitive rehabilitation.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation accounts for the income lost due to the inability to work during recovery or subsequent cognitive impairments that impact future employment.
  • Pain and Suffering: Damages are awarded for the physical pain, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life stemming from the injury.
  • Long-Term Care: Encompasses expenses associated with ongoing care, therapy, and support for individuals enduring severe TBIs.
  • Home Modifications: Covers costs related to adapting living spaces to accommodate the specific needs of individuals with traumatic brain injuries.

Insurance companies often prioritize profits over your well-being, aiming to minimize payouts.

Navigating the claims process alone could lead to inadequate compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and future expenses. Securing compensation for long-term injuries is essential in providing for yourself and your family. Recovery from a traumatic brain injury typically involves extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care.
