There are few more serious and unpredictable types of injuries than those related to an impact to the head. While some victims may fully recover over time, many others suffer permanent damage and are no longer able to perform day-to-day activities. There could be the need for long-term nursing care or years of rehabilitation to attempt to regain abilities, even those that we deem basic functions.
At Ilkhanoff & Silverstein, our legal team takes on brain injury cases determined to seek the maximum settlement possible for related damages. A full evaluation of your case should take place as early as possible so that it can be documented, and all supporting evidence for a claim or lawsuit can be preserved. If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious brain injury at the hands of a negligent party, contact Ilkhanoff & Silverstein.
Common accidents that cause brain injury
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Near-drowning incidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Truck accidents
Brain injury may even occur due to foreign or dangerous substances in the bloodstream. Defective pharmaceutical products can slowly harm the victim’s brain if the dosage or substance is incorrect for the patient. Even dog bites can introduce incredibly dangerous bacteria to the brain if the wound is not treated.
What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is any harm done to the brain that will have long-term consequences with little hope of reversal. In the most cases, the victim will live in a vegetative state for the foreseeable future. Families suffer incredible emotional upheaval, financial damage, and grief when a loved one has suffered this type of catastrophic injury. A person suffering from permanent brain damage will likely no longer be able to earn a living, support a family, or live life as they did prior to their accident.
When a traumatic brain injury is caused by negligence
If your loved one has suffered from a significant brain injury that was caused by negligence, it is important to contact an attorney. Only a seasoned, experienced attorney can help develop a case that satisfies the burden of proof. If your attorney can prove that the injury, whether caused by an auto accident, slip and fall, or any other incident, was because of the careless actions or inaction of another, you could be entitled to compensation to help relieve the financial and emotional impact of a brain injury. This can include the loss of past and future wages, loss of consortium, the medical expenses of caring for the individual, and more. Contact our firm to discuss your legal matter.
