Brain injuries can occur as the result of many different kinds of accidents, from motorcycle crashes to violent assaults to slips and falls. Due to the sensitive and urgent nature of this type of injury, and the fact that the effects could be permanent, you are especially in need of a monetary payout that will cover you not just now but in the future with ongoing rehab, medical bills and compensation for your pain and suffering.
You won’t get what you need by relying on your insurance company payout. If left to their own devices, your insurance company will give you the lowest amount they can get away with, which is pitiful and barely covers the most immediate expenses associated with your injury. But lost wages and ongoing therapy will total thousands, tens of thousands and more depending on the extent of the injury.
You need someone like Kuzyk Law behind you to fight for your rights. Call us today and we’ll fight their lawyers for you to get you the compensation you’re owed.
Brain Injuries in the U.S.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability in this country, accounting for 30% of all injury deaths. They can be caused by anything from sports and workplace accidents to falls and violent acts.
There are about 1,7 million people in the U.S. who sustain a TBI each year. Of those people, 52,000 die, 275,000 are hospitalized, and 1.4 million are treated and released from the ER.
Common Brain Injury Symptoms
There are many symptoms associated with TBI. You may experience the following symptoms associated with mild TBI:
- Blurred vision or tired eyes
- Ringing in the ears
- Bad taste in the mouth
- Change in sleep patterns
- Behavioral or mood changes
- Problems with memory, concentration, attention, or thinking
Symptoms of moderate to severe TBI include these symptoms in addition to those above:
- Chronic headache that worsens
- Repeated vomiting or nausea
- Convulsions or seizures
- Inability to awaken from sleep
- Dilation of pupils
- Slurred speech
- Weakness or numbness in the extremities
- Loss of coordination
- Confusion, restlessness, or agitation
Look Beyond the Minimum
Remember: the insurance companies won’t save you from the costs that keep piling up. They are only concerned with their bottom line. The most they’ll likely pay you is money for the immediate medical bills associated with the accident that caused your brain injury.
However, brain injuries aren’t a one-time occurrence. They often plague the victim with headaches, nerve and muscle problems, as well as cognitive impairment, for many years. This means potentially years of costly medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost work and a lot of pain and suffering.
