What Are the Signs of A TBI?
The danger of a TBI is that many symptoms may not present until days, weeks, or even months after an accident. When left untreated, a TBI can be serious and life-threatening. While you should always seek an official diagnosis – and any treatment you need – from a medical doctor, look out for these common TBI symptoms:
- Confusion and disorientation
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurred vision
- Ear ringing
- Mood swings
Keep in mind that any symptoms – no matter how minor – warrant medical attention. If you haven’t already seen a doctor to discuss your accident, do so immediately. This should be your first priority.
How Can A Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?
A lawyer will sit down with you to discuss the particulars of your case. When you meet with a lawyer, you should expect to answer a lot of questions, like:
Who else was involved?
Did you hit your head?
Did you seek treatment, and if so, what did you have done?
How are you feeling now?
Then, your legal team will get to work gathering evidence. This may involve a variety of tactics, from working with medical professionals to gather records of your injuries, to visiting the accident scene to grasp what happened. Your attorney will also likely contact any eyewitnesses to the event and will work on compiling a compelling narrative to present to an insurance adjuster in making a claim for compensation.
Will My Lawyer File A Lawsuit?
Typically, before jumping into a lawsuit, your lawyer will first try to “settle” with the other party’s liability insurance company. This means that if you recover, your compensation will come not from the other party directly, but from his or her insurance coverage. Often, this is where your case will stop. Particularly in cases of minor injury, you can generally walk away with a decent settlement from an insurer, allowing you to pay your medical bills. However, if this step is unsuccessful, your lawyer can file a lawsuit against the party who caused the accident. This is called a personal injury lawsuit. In a personal injury lawsuit, your lawyer will need to prove four elements: First, that the other party owed you a duty of care, that he breached that duty of care, that this breach caused your injuries, and that you suffered concrete damages. Your lawyer will attempt to prove this by presenting evidence of the facts leading up to the accident, the nature and extent of your injuries, and the expenses you’ve incurred as a result.
