Pursuing a Traumatic Brain Injury Claim After an Ohio Car Accident

Trauma to the brain, whether from hitting your head on the steering wheel when an airbag fails to deploy or by a side impact causing your body to slam against the side of your interior, can bring long-term health impacts that you may never fully recover. When these injuries occur because of another driver being reckless or negligent on the road, you have the right to compensation for the harm they caused you or your loved one suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI).

The Painful Reality of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Many situations can lead to TBI, including commercial truck collisions, pedestrian hit-and-runs, multi-car crashes, car accidents, and bicyclists struck by vehicles. While every TBI experience is different, many of these injuries involve some of the following symptoms:

  • Speech impairment
  • Seizures
  • Coma
  • Memory loss
  • Judgment impairment
  • Headaches
  • Behavioral and emotional changes
  • Diminished reasoning
  • Permanent personality effects
  • Sleep issues
  • Struggle to concentration
  • Blurred vision

This is not a comprehensive list of symptoms one might experience, which highlights how important it is to get appropriate medical attention after suffering head trauma in a car accident. Some TBI injuries require ongoing therapy, surgery, medication to control symptoms, and possibly physical therapy, all of which can cost thousands and deserve compensation from the at-fault party. 

How Traumatic Brain Injury Compensation Can Help Your Family

While not every case of traumatic brain injury from a car accident will result in serious, long-term injuries or permanent disability, the cost of treatment can devastate your family financially. When a loved one dies from their injuries, funeral costs and lost income can devastate the financial stability of their household.  

An experienced Ohio traumatic brain injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation to cover some of the below damages: 

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning potential
  • Long-term care planning
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death

In situations where you or a loved one suffer permanent disability because of TBI caused by a negligent driver causing an accident, receiving full compensation that accounts for the permanency of injuries is crucial to future well-being. Before agreeing to any offered settlement by the insurance company, speak with an Ohio attorney with proven experience in representing traumatic brain injury cases.
