If you were recently in a car accident or a workplace accident, you may have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Particularly if your head received any blunt force trauma or you were shaken during the accident, you may be at increased risk of a TBI.
Traumatic brain injuries can have a massive impact on your life. Often, the person who suffered the injury, whether it was during a car accident or an accident at work, will require care for some time. In some cases, those who suffer a TBI do not recover sufficiently to resume their previous work. Their spouse or other family members must become caregivers, increasing the impact on the family's finances. If someone you love has suffered a TBI as the result of a car accident or a workplace injury, speaking with an attorney as soon as possible is in everyone's best interests.
