Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can occur as a result of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, personal injuries, and more. People who suffer TBIs experience a wide range of harmful effects. Some victims may experience only minor symptoms, while others may become severely disabled and unable to live independently.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk brain injury attorneys have seen the devastation that TBIs cause both victims and their loved ones. They’re especially damaging to victims and their families when they affect the primary income-earners in the household, as TBIs often make it difficult or impossible to work and earn a living. That can leave their family members in a financial bind—especially when they’re trying to pay expensive medical bills.
Getting full compensation for TBIs is difficult. That’s because the costs of TBIs are often difficult to calculate, as the effects are lifelong. In addition to being unable to work, victims also may require intensive medical care for the rest of their lives. Getting a single payment for initial costs may help in the short term, but in the long term, victims and their families deserve much larger settlements for what they’ve already gone through and what’s to come.
Because TBI claims are often bigger than other types of injury claims, insurance companies are reluctant to pay out to victims and their families. That’s where we come in. We believe that injured victims shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for their own expenses, especially when others are at fault for their injuries. Get in touch with us today to find out how we can assist you or your loved one with your TBI-related expenses.
