What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuit?

A traumatic brain injury lawsuit is a legal claim for financial compensation based on the legal fault of another party. When a person gets hurt, including suffering a brain injury, because of the wrongful actions of another, the victim may deserve financial compensation. A traumatic brain injury lawsuit requires the person who caused the accident to pay the victim for the victim’s damages.A TBI lawsuit is a civil case. It’s not a case based on a crime, although the person who caused the injury may also face criminal charges. The case is most often based on negligence. Negligence is not hurting someone on purpose. Hurting someone through mere carelessness is enough to make a person legally responsible for a traumatic brain injury. A traumatic brain injury lawsuit is the only way to initiate a formal claim to pursue compensation.

Traumatic Brain Injury Numbers

While many people believe brain injuries are very uncommon, the numbers tell a much different story. Based on figures compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur annually in the United States. Of those who are injured, 25 percent suffer injuries extensive enough to result in long-term disabilities. And to make matters worse, many doctors are slow to realize the seriousness of the injuries sustained by their patients.

As a result, the victims often endure far more difficult circumstances than they would otherwise. When this is the case, we at Jack Bernstein, Injury Attorneys are prepared to go to work immediately in order to right this terrible wrong. We will look at the circumstances that led up to the accident, gather all the facts of the case, and then proceed to make sure those who are responsible pay for their actions.

Negligence and Carelessness Leads to Brain Injuries

In many cases involving brain injuries, what makes the circumstances even more sad is the fact that the accident never should have happened. However, because of the negligence and carelessness of others, victims of these accidents have their lives forever changed. Car accidents, the leading cause of these incidents, are almost always a result of another person failing to be careful and mindful of the safety of others. Unfortunately, the results are often catastrophic.

Along with car accidents, carelessness is often exhibited in slip-and-fall situations, sporting competition injuries, and accidents involving blunt force trauma to the head. In each of these situations, it’s always clear the accident could have been prevented if those responsible had chosen to be careful rather than reckless. When dealing with these situations, we feel it is imperative to work extremely hard for our clients in order to help them gain the financial compensation they deserve.
