What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a form of acquired brain injury that occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBIs can be the result of a blow, bump, or jolt to the head (closed head injury) or an object piercing the skull and entering brain tissue (penetrating head injury).

TBIs can be mild to severe, depending on the extent of damage to the brain.

Why Do I Need a TBI Lawyer?

A TBI lawyer can help with virtually any aspect of your traumatic brain injury claim. They can help you work with insurance companies that are delaying payments and negotiate with them for a better settlement amount. If the amount they are offering is not reasonable, then they can represent you in court to receive a more appropriate amount.

They can increase the amount of damages you might be entitled to by considering many different types of damages, including those related to medical bills, expenses related to future care, and lost wages due to being unable to work. Other damages like pain and suffering can also increase the overall total of your settlement. An attorney can help calculate a realistic figure that can help you prepare for the future without an overblown estimate.


Q: Do You Qualify for Disability Due to a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A: Some individuals qualify for social security payments due to a traumatic brain injury, while some do not. The important factors include how severe the brain damage is and whether or not it affects your ability to work. The Social Security Administration usually asks for medical records to prove that you have had a traumatic brain injury for a prolonged period of time before awarding benefits.

Q: How Do You Prove a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A: In order to prove you have a traumatic brain injury in a personal injury claim, an individual usually has to prove that an accident happened that caused the injury. This can be proven through a police report of a car accident, a report from a workers’ compensation claim, video evidence, or other means. It can also be proven by both your testimony and the testimony of a medical professional who is experienced in the field.

Q: How Do You Prove Negligence in a Traumatic Brain Injury Claim?

A: In most personal injury claims, the defendant has what’s called a duty of care, which must have been breached. This includes things like a driver who’s speeding or distracted, a medical professional who performs surgery under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or a property owner who does not properly alert visitors to hazards on their property. The plaintiff must prove that the breach directly caused their injuries in a personal injury claim.

Q: Is TBI a Lifelong Disability?

A: Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a lifelong disability for some but not others. The brain is sometimes able to bounce back from stress or trauma. The length and severity of TBI symptoms depend on the severity of the accident, the individual’s health status, and several other factors. When considering an individual for disability payments, the Social Security Administration often looks for long-term ailments in individuals with traumatic brain injuries.

Don’t Go Through a TBI Alone

A traumatic brain injury can turn an individual’s life upside down, but an attorney can help them navigate the complicated process of recovery. Filing a personal injury claim can be a big first step in receiving damages for an injury caused by a negligent party.
