Salt Lake City Car Accident Brain Injury Lawyer
A Salt Lake City car accident brain injury lawyer represents people who have had the misfortune of suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a result of a car accident.
A TBI cannot be caused by internal means, which means we must clearly demonstrate that your TBI was a direct result of the car accident in which you were involved.
Car Accidents and Traumatic Brain Injuries
Car accidents are a common cause of TBI. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), car accidents cause roughly 17 percent of brain injuries.
Furthermore, people who visit the emergency room due to a TBI are most likely to have sustained the injury in a car accident.
Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injury
You should not need to suffer financial burden as a result of your injuries. If your accident and injuries were due to the negligence of someone else, you deserve compensation for any damages or expenses related to the accident:
- Current and future lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Financial loss associated with lifestyle changes
If this is a situation you find yourself in, contact a Salt Lake City car accident brain injury lawyer to begin the process of seeking compensation.
Common Brain Injuries Resulting from Car Accidents
Different types of TBI can result from a car accident, but some are more common than others:
- Concussion – A concussion occurs when the brain experiences trauma caused by impacting the side of the skull. This often occurs during the impact of a car accident. Concussions can lead to time off from work and may have long-term effects.
- Contusion – When the brain is bruised or bleeding, it is called a contusion. Contusions are all but guaranteed to result in time off from work. Depending on their severity, expensive medical treatment may be necessary, and long-term disability may result.
When the brain is injured in a car accident—no matter how minor the injuries may seem—there’s a distinct possibility that long-term medical care will be required to treat symptoms.
Any treatment involving the brain is typically very expensive, which is why you need a Salt Lake City brain injury car accident lawyer to help you get the compensation required to ensure your recovery.
