Entitled by Law

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) estimates than more than 2.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year in the United States. More than 17 percent of those injuries are sustained in traffic accidents. With outpatient therapy costing up to $1,000 a day and hospital-based rehabilitation costing up to $8,000 a day, the direct and indirect costs of TBI is estimated at more than $76 billion a year. If you suffer any injury to the head in a traffic accident in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, speak at once with an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer. If your injury was caused by a negligent driver, you are entitled by law to full compensation for all of your medical care, days lost from work, and related expenses.

Traumatic brain injuries can be extremely deceptive. Always be extra-careful regarding any blow to the head, because a brain injury is not always immediately apparent, and many victims don’t even realize at first that they’ve been injured. If the head is violently shaken in an auto accident, the brain can collide against the skull and a brain injury can result even if no object directly impacts the head. The symptoms of traumatic brain injury can include memory loss, blackouts, dizziness, and seizures.

A traumatic brain injury can become a catastrophic injury without immediate medical treatment. If you sustain a blow to the head or shaking of the head in a Dallas-area traffic accident, see a doctor without delay. If the driver who injured you was driving negligently, you have the right to the maximum available compensation, but that compensation isn’t handed to you. You have to prove that you were injured and that the other driver’s negligence caused your injury. Let a good personal injury attorney help. If you suffer a traumatic brain injury in an accident in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, call an experienced Dallas personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible.
