Advocating for You: Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers

Have you or a loved one recently suffered a traumatic brain injury? If you have, it can be a scary time that turns your entire world upside down. One moment you are going about your business and supporting your family. However, in an instant, an accident can change everything.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect a person’s physical, psychological, and cognitive abilities. After all, the brain is responsible for controlling every function of the body. When it is injured, even in mild cases, it can affect a person’s mood, concentration, senses, and ability to function. Serious TBIs can result in a coma, vegetative state, and even brain death. As a result, you may not be able to provide for your family, enjoy everyday activities, and even interact socially.

This difficult time can have you wondering how you can possibly get back to the life you once considered normal. As you or a loved one recovers, you’re probably worried about keeping your family afloat while the medical and miscellaneous bills begin to pile up. Our lawyers can help to ease the burden.

A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help with Your Struggles

The Ward Law Group wants to restore your hope. Our team of attorneys has helped others (just like your family) deal successfully with similar situations. We take time to listen to your story, fears, and setbacks. Once we hear how a traumatic brain injury has affected your life, we will determine the best legal action to secure compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Some people may find filing a claim with insurance companies overwhelming. After all, insurance companies are notorious for offering low settlements, so that they can retain their huge profits. They don’t make it easy to obtain the money you deserve. Complicated paperwork, long hours spent on the phone (usually on hold), and minimizing your claim certainly adds stress to an already stressful situation.

Spanish-speaking individuals may feel this strain even more. After all, most people who speak English have trouble figuring out the insurance company’s complex lingo. Hard-working people who aren’t as familiar with the language may settle for thousands of dollars less just because they don’t know what their claim is actually worth.

This is why you need a dedicated personal injury attorney ready to deal with the insurance company’s “red tape.” The Ward Law Group helps both English and Spanish-speaking clients to understand the insurance process and to get the financial help they desperately need.

Traumatic brain injuries are costly, complex medical conditions. Make sure you get the compensation you deserve! Recruit the Ward Law Group today.

Common Types of Traumatic Brain Injury Claims that We Settle

The Ward Law Group has experience handling all sorts of traumatic brain injuries. We understand this can be a crippling injury, both physically and financially. While a person tries to recover from the physical, cognitive, and psychological effects of the injury, the family often has to sacrifice their livelihood as the expenses mount up. If this injury was due to the negligence of someone else, then you may be entitled to financial benefits which will help to pay your bills and secure your family’s future.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 150 people die from traumatic brain injuries each day. In addition, those who survive TBIs often have to deal with the effects of the injury days, weeks, and even years after the event occurs. These effects include impaired movement, memory, and emotional functioning. As a person deals with these symptoms, their family also struggles to understand the injury, pay medical bills, and keep the household bills under wraps.

How Do Traumatic Brain Injuries Occur?

A serious bump, jolt, or blow to the head creates a disruption in the brain. TBIs can be mild, causing a brief change in a person’s mental status, or severe, having lasting effects on one’s physical and mental health.

There are several ways in which someone can sustain a traumatic brain injury. These can include:

  • Falls: Many older adults experience TBIs after falling. In some cases, this can be due to unsafe walking environments caused by another person’s negligence. Those who fell in unsafe conditions may be entitled to financial compensation.
  • Car Accidents: The impact of a car accident can cause significant injuries to the brain. In fact, according to the CDC, automotive accidents are the third leading cause of traumatic brain injuries that lead to disability or death. If your TBI was caused by another driver’s negligence, he or she should pay for the difficulties that you currently face.
  • Violence: Acts of violence—either domestic or enacted by a stranger—are another leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. If someone has intentionally caused you to suffer a TBI, he or she needs to be held accountable.
  • Sports Injuries: While many people participate in sports to achieve better physical health or a positive outlet for their energy, sometimes unsafe conditions cause injuries like TBIs. If a venue or person acted negligently during a sporting event, you may be entitled to compensation.
  • Work-Related Accidents: We all want to go to our jobs believing safety is our employer’s main concern. Unfortunately, some employers sacrifice a person’s safety to cut costs or improve productivity. If your employer knowingly put you in danger, you can receive compensation for their negligent practices.

Do any of these situations sound familiar? The Ward Law Group will help you navigate the legal process and obtain the maximum benefits for your traumatic brain injury claim.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries & Compensation

How does a traumatic brain injury affect someone? This often depends on the severity of the injury and what parts of the brain were affected. Sometimes the effects of a TBI can clear up in a few days or weeks. Unfortunately, others can cause lifelong or debilitating conditions.

How a Traumatic Brain Injury Can Alter Your Life

Every TBI results in different complications. These can include:

  • Loss of memory or cognitive function: A blow to the brain can affect the way your mind works. As a result, you may have difficulty completing what you once considered “easy” mental tasks.
  • Emotional difficulties: You may experience uncharacteristic mood changes or swings after a TBI. In addition, you can be more likely to experience anxiety or depression.
  • Vertigo: Some TBI victims may experience extended periods of dizziness. This can keep you from work, leisure activities, or enjoying time with your family.
  • Headaches: Persistent headaches are common after a person sustains a TBI. Unfortunately, headaches can also affect your ability to function or complete work.
  • Sensory problems. Vision, taste, hearing, and even olfactory (smell) issues can result after a TBI.
  • Social issues. After a TBI, you may find interacting with others to be more difficult. Problems with concentration, picking up on social cues, and even talking can keep you from relating to others.

Since the brain is essential to our everyday functioning, symptoms of a TBI can extend well beyond this list. It’s important that you receive continued medical care so that a doctor can monitor any changes in your health status.

An attorney can help you to get the compensation you deserve for a traumatic brain injury. This includes help with medical bills, extensive therapy, and settlement for pain and suffering. In addition, a personal injury lawyer can make sure that you are reimbursed for time missed from work as well as lost earnings from permanent disabilities.

The amount of compensation you receive depends on the type of accident and the severity of your injuries. A personal injury lawyer, like those at the Ward Law Group, will make sure that you get the maximum benefits depending on your specific case. For example, an attorney at the Ward Law Group recently handled a claim in which a mother suffered a coma as a result of a rollover car crash. We were able to secure this victim a $1,000,000 settlement to pay for medical bills and her family’s future.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

If you are in a car accident or suffer another type of injury, the first thing you should do is make sure that you’re safe. If possible, try to get out of harm’s way and call your local emergency number. Take pictures of the scene or see if someone else can do it.

Get medical help if necessary. Sometimes traumatic brain injury symptoms aren’t evident right away. If you suspect any sort of injury, at the very least, request a physical exam from your doctor. This not only helps to check out your health status, but it is also important documentation if you need to file a personal injury claim.

As soon as possible, you will want to open a claim with your insurance company. If the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you should seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer.

How can a personal injury lawyer help during this difficult time? You’re probably going through a lot as you try to recover from your injuries. An attorney will file the necessary paperwork, take care of communications with the insurance company, and acquire all the necessary documents to build a rock-solid case. You will have peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry about the complexities of filing a claim.

The law limits the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. If you wait too long, you could be missing out on thousands of dollars you and your family need. Don’t hesitate to call the Ward Law Group today!

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way.
