After suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), victims face serious barriers. Few people truly understand the ramifications of head trauma. In the media, those who suffer brain injuries either die or become disabled and no longer speak or live like they did before the injury.
In reality, those who suffer traumatic brain injuries, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke website, often regain some semblance of a regular life. Victims of head injuries often need surgeries for hematomas (ruptured blood vessels) or brain contusions (bruised brain tissue). The disabilities that result from TBI depend on the location in the brain of the injury, age of the victim, and other factors.
After suffering a severe traumatic brain injury, most do not call a personal injury lawyer. But like any other accidental injury, a determination must be made. Particularly when a person gets back to a degree of normalcy but cannot work, it’s necessary to establish cause. But victims may not be equipped to decide whether or not a skilled Phoenix accident lawyer can win damages or provide better care than is possible otherwise.
This is why we feel strongly about contacting experienced Arizona personal injury lawyers. Unless the family of the injured person is there to help, or a medical provider, neighbor, or friend recommends a lawyer, the chance to receive better care and live a better life after the traumatic brain injury is lost.
