Arizona residents who have suffered head injuries at the hands of medical providers, in auto collisions or during recreational activities, may be entitled to compensation for their losses. A traumatic brain injury can completely change the course of one's life. If you or a loved one has suffered such an injury, you are not alone. Help is available.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is generally caused by a sudden and forceful impact to the head. When this happens, bleeding and swelling in the brain typically occurs. It can lead to a variety of physical and psychological issues such as paralysis, pain, headaches, memory loss, agitation and various other problems. While, with medical intervention, some of these problems may be treated with success, many of them will last a lifetime.
The effects of head injuries may not always be immediately apparent. This can result in a delay in seeking help or the failure to receive the appropriate treatment in a timely manner. Those who have suffered any sort of head trauma and experiences even the slightest of symptoms would be wise to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
A traumatic brain injury not only affects the injured, but can have a drastic impact on his or her family as well. Such an injury can leave individuals and families struggling to cover medical expenses and rehabilitation costs, all while trying to deal with the numerous other economic and non-economic damages sustained such as lost wages and benefits and loss of consortium -- among others. If you or a loved one has experienced a TBI due to another individual's negligence, you may have legal recourse. Through filing and litigating the appropriate claims in an Arizona civil court with the assistance of legal counsel, you may be able to achieve fair and full compensation for your losses.
