About 280,000 victims are hospitalized for TBI every year. Of those, about 50,000 die from their injuries. Approximately 80,000 to 90,000 suffer head injuries that are so severe that they are disabled for months or years after the accident. For some people, the effects of their head injuries never go away.
For those who survive TBI accidents, medical bills can pile up quickly. Your ongoing medical treatment, medications, in-home care, physical and occupational rehabilitation, and lost income will rapidly drain any savings you might have.
If your loved one was killed after suffering a brain injury, the medical bills and funeral costs are a constant reminder of your loss. If he or she contributed significantly to your household income, the financial losses can quickly become overwhelming.
You shouldn’t have to pay for the negligence of someone else. While financial compensation can’t erase the pain you’ve suffered or the disability you now face, it can help ease some of the burdens that will continue to impact your life for years to come.
The effects of repeated head trauma or single accidents that cause TBI may not be evident at first. You may have noticed dizziness, pain at the site of the injury, visual disturbances, or a dazed feeling right after your accident occurred. When those symptoms escalate, however, or they don’t go away, it’s time to seek legal advice. You could be facing injuries and long-term disabilities that are more serious than you originally anticipated.
For some people, the effects of a severe TBI are more obvious. They might include:
Because the long-term effects of brain injuries aren’t always immediately evident, insurance companies often prey on victims who have suffered head injuries before the true impact of their accident has had a chance to soak in. While the settlement money these companies offer may seem substantial at the time, and a quick payout is attractive to relieve the financial burdens your family is facing, don’t fall for their tactics.
If you sign on the dotted line, cash an insurance check, or agree to accept a settlement offer, you are essentially signing away your rights to pursue additional compensation once the reality of your injuries become evident. And if your condition takes a turn for the worse, the insurance company or other responsible party can no longer be held liable.
Before you make any decisions that may impact your financial recovery, we urge you to contact our firm. We’ll evaluate your settlement offer and help you determine whether it represents fair compensation for your losses. If the impact of your injuries is substantial, we may be able to help you increase your settlement considerably.
