IT'S MORE TO US, IT'S PERSONAL
birmingham traumatic brain injury lawyer
If you're in need of a Birmingham brain injury lawyer, contact an attorney at Wettermark Keith.
A life-altering brain injury can happen in a matter of seconds. You could have been in a car accident and hit your head on impact, you could have been playing in a recreational sports league with your friends when that fly ball came out of nowhere, or you could have simply slipped and fell when stepping out of the shower. In some cases, you may not even remember being hit at all. Or, you may not have realized the initial seriousness of the impact, thinking you could go on living your life as you did before the accident. Then, the doctor's tell you about the issues that follow brain trauma, explaining how you may never regain certain functions, that new symptoms may start to appear days after the impact, and that you're going to have to alter your way of life, at least for a little while. Your life has changed, and not for the better.
If you’ve experienced a brain trauma, then you have suffered from a massive, unexpected injustice that has impacted all aspects of your life, including your thought processes, bodily functions, general lifestyle, and, sometimes, your personality. Brain trauma could be caused by a simple bump to the head, a larger blow to the skull, or, even, a penetrating injury (like a gunshot wound) to the head. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be the single most debilitating thing a person can suffer. All aspects of our day to day lives are governed by our brain sending signals to the rest of our body. When a person suffers a TBI, many things in life are no longer possible-- things which most people take for granted, such as opening a door or remembering a birthday become extremely difficult, if not impossible altogether. Sometimes a victim of a TBI never regains these basic life skills, or they have to go through countless hours of grueling physical therapy to relearn these functions.
Over 1.4 million Americans sustain a TBI each year, and more than 5.3 million people across the United States require assistance to live their daily lives. Unfortunately, TBI can also result in death, and over 64,000 TBI-related deaths occurred in America in 2020. These injuries in children can interrupt childhood brain development, limiting their ability to live their life similarly to their peers. When it comes to older adults, TBI may be missed altogether, since its symptoms overlap with other common chronic illnesses like Dementia and Alzheimer's. If you or a loved one has suffered from a brain injury, contact us at Wettermark Keith by calling (877) 715-9300 as soon as possible.
Accidents and Injuries that may cause traumatic BRAIN INJURY (TBI)
Many different types of accidents that leave victims with simple personal injury also have the ability to impart a catastrophic head injury. There are a number of different factors that determine the severity of a head injury, as well as the length of the expected recovery time: the injury could be simple, mild, or extremity severe, the severity of the injury could be affected by the time-span between contraction and discovery, and the impacts of a TBI could be worse the older a person gets. Our experienced brain injury lawyers have helped clients recover extensive compensation for head injuries as a result of:
- Automobile Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Railroad Accidents
- Defective Products
Depending on the severity of a TBI, health problems that result from the injury could last for a few days or stick around for the rest of someone’s life. If someone’s injury is chronic, a patient may need ongoing care to help maintain their health in an assisted living facility. If you or a loved one suffered from a TBI and you believe that you are entitled to compensation, contact a Birmingham brain injury lawyer at Wettermark Keith as soon as possible.
