A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can be a life-altering incident for you and your loved ones. Whether you suffer a TBI in a car accident, a slip and fall, or a sports incident, the result can be a lifetime of physical and mental suffering. Symptoms can range in severity and can last for years and require extensive and costly rehabilitation. If you or a loved one suffered a TBI resulting from an accident or the negligence of another party, the attorneys of Holzman & Associates will fight for you to hold those responsible accountable and secure the compensation you are owed. Our experienced attorneys will stand by your side during this difficult time and focus on your case so you can focus on your recovery.
What We Fight For
As with all cases, exceptional legal representation can make all the difference, and this is especially true with traumatic brain injury cases. TBI cases present a series of legal challenges that can make them difficult for you and your loved ones. We are committed to shouldering this stress so you can recover and concentrate on your health.
Often, TBI cases can be lengthy and expensive. This is a result of insurance companies looking to avoid costly settlements and their willingness to further your suffering by denying you the compensation you are owed. Recovery and rehabilitation can take years, or even continue throughout the victim’s entire life, which results in expensive medical bills. You should not be responsible for this financial burden if you are a victim of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. We are committed to standing up to insurance companies and fighting for you and your loved ones.
What Are the Symptoms of a TBI?
Traumatic brain injuries are often associated with violent car accidents or painful slip and falls, but they can also be the result of seemingly minor incidents. TBIs can be difficult to diagnose as symptoms sometimes do not appear until days or weeks following an accident. We believe that any head injury is a serious one and should be treated with appropriate care and examination by a medical professional. Victims can suffer a lifetime of ailments and side effects that include:
- Memory loss
- Speech impediments
- Extreme mood swings
- Vision problems
- Disorientation and extreme confusion
- Loss of balance
Are TBI Cases Hard to Prove?
In some instances, a TBI can be difficult to prove as many of the most common and damaging symptoms don’t show up on many tests. Unfortunately, defendants will sometimes claim the victim is faking or exaggerating their injuries. We have seen the impacts of a TBI firsthand and understand how troubling such an accusation can be. The pain and suffering of you or a loved one do not need to be furthered by false claims and hurtful allegations.
What Types of Damages Can Be Pursued?
A TBI can lead to long-term health complications and often requires extensive rehabilitation and medical care. This continuing care can be extremely expensive and should not be your burden if your injuries resulted from another party’s fault or negligence. If you suffered a TBI, you may be entitled to several monetary damages to ensure you can receive the treatment and care you need to recover. Damages can include:
- Lost wages or future earnings
- Medical expenses resulting from your accident
- Anticipated costs of long-term and ongoing care
- Your emotional and physical pain and suffering
- Reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses
