What is a traumatic brain injury?

When your head is hit forcefully, for any reason, there’s a potential for a brain injury. The brain is much more fragile than we think. A blow to the head can cause physical damage to the brain that is visible in the behavioral, emotional, and psychological changes that occur after the injury.

What causes TBI?

Motor vehicle accidents account for 17.3% of all TBI cases in the United States. That is topped only by “falls,” at 35.2% of all cases. Assaults account for 11%, and 21% of TBI cases are from unknown circumstances. Another 16.5% of people were struck by or struck against something else and suffered a brain injury. As you can see, auto accidents account for a significant number of these cases. Someone who is the victim of a negligent driver didn’t injure themselves. They were literally hit by another person’s vehicle and in turn suffered an injury that was in no way their fault.

How much does TBI cost society?

The cost of traumatic brain injuries on the economy is outrageous. In 2010 alone, TBI cost the United States approximately $76.5 billion. That includes the outrageously high medical bills of caring for someone who suffers this type of injury and the loss of work that they’re unable to do now that they’re injured. It’s a cost that’s too high, but the human toll a brain injury takes is far more depressing.

What are the effects of a TBI?

The brain is a physical organ just like the heart. It can become physically damaged and require surgery to repair it, just like any other organ. The tragic part of this is that the brain regulates emotions, behavior, and other intangible aspects of who a person is, right down to their core. Therefore when someone suffers from a brain injury, they might experience a drastic change in personality or feel differently emotionally (or be numb to emotions in general, depending on the area of their injury). Physical effects can include loss of muscle control, coordination difficulty, and speech problems.

What does a TBI patient have to endure?

Someone who has a severe traumatic brain injury is likely going to require extensive, long-term medical care. Their life may never be “normal” again. Permanent disability means the person will not be able to take care of themselves financially because they can’t work. They may have trouble communicating and expressing themselves to their family, or they may suffer from behavioral changes that get them in trouble later in life. It’s tragic all around.

It is only the financial difficulties that a TBI lawyer might be able to help with. Your TBI attorney can make sure that the people who hurt you or your loved one will accept responsibility for what they did, so that you or your loved one can get the financial help you need to go on with life. A TBI lawyer can also get you compensation for your pain and suffering.

What are long-term effects of TBI?

A mild brain injury might result in short-term effects, but a severe injury will likely leave a victim with lifetime consequences. There might be problems with memory, problems with thought patterns, periods of confusion, times when thinking is slowed, and much more. And many people who suffer from these injuries often have personality changes that literally makes them seem like totally different people. A very talkative, outgoing person might suddenly be withdrawn from loved ones, and it can be very painful to see the changes.

Who can help?

Your doctor, therapist, and other medical professionals, as well as loving family and friends are the primary source of comfort while you cope with a TBI. The person who can help you get compensation to pay for all of these resources is a TBI attorney who specializes in holding people responsible for causing these types of injuries.

What Our Clients Say

Honestly can't say enough positive things about the Law Brothers! I got into a severe car accident at the end of 2016 and they've been with me every step of the way ever since. Almost 4 years! I want to thank everyone there especially Caitlyn, Shawn, and Yasmeen. They have been responsive, helpful, and reassuring and I don't know what I would've done if I didn't have the legal support that I was able to get along the years. They are super professional and really helped me get through this hardship in my life. I would definitely recommend!!!

Ivonne K.

Last year I contacted your law firm when I got into a car accident. the gentleman that handled my case, his name was Cesar. Cesar was very helpful and compassionate about my situation. He helped me get my car fixed very quickly and was super patient with me. He answered all of my questions and ensured me that everything will be taken care of. Once my case was settled I ended up getting more than I was expecting, which was amazing. I highly recommended Cesar and this law firm to anyone that needs help.

William Charlton

I was a client to the Law Brothers firm for about a year, the staff is really nice and professional. I would get updates on the case status and when I did call I would usually get a call back within 24 hours. I really appreciate the work that was done for me. I got the most out of my settlement and when I called to have a break down of the costs, Genesis was very patient and gave me a break down on all of it. I will definitely recommend this law firm to friends and family, as well as call them in the future if needed (hopefully not soon).

Erendira Landa

I had gotten into an accident and had no idea what to do. Friends and family recommended I get a lawyer since I was not at fault. I found this firm and I was beyond impressed. They handled everything for me from car insurance questions to finding doctors for me to visit. After my accident all I had to do was make appointments with various doctors to help with my pain. I give five stars because this firm went above and beyond and continued to follow up with me. I highly recommend if you are in need of a lawyer to use them.

The team at the Law Brothers we’re amazing! I am not the kind of person to seek legal counsel, but I was hit by a car while riding a motorcycle and the driver’s insurance was avoiding my attempts to get reimbursed. They were able to not only get a settlement that replaced my motorcycle, but they found me physical therapy which was close to my work. Now I am back to where I was physically before the accident and I am able to ride a motorcycle again. They were always responsive to my texts, calls, and emails. They even would systematically check to see how I was healing and if the support they linked me to was satisfactory.

Charles Mortensen

This law firm is a team of miracle workers! The Law Brothers Law Firm saved me from suffering at another law firm from Century City. My case manager Jonathan was able to gather all the details from my accident ( literally within a week! ) and keeping me updated consistenty to keep me at ease. They work diligently and keep at it until your case is completed. I went through a car accident that almost took my life away but thanks to the higher power and the Law Brothers, you won't even hesitate to choose them because I felt trust and integrity throughout my case and I feel happier in my life, which in my opinion, matters the most at the end of the day.
