Traumatic Brain Injuries
What Is A Traumatic Brain Injury?
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is damage to the brain that results from an acute event such as striking one’s head in a motor vehicle or other significant accident. TBI differs from other “typical” injuries in that it can drastically affect a person’s life for a substantial period of time or even permanently. Attorney Christopher Marzzacco has extensive experience with TBI, having taken numerous courses that cover detecting and reporting concussions. Working with experts in this ever-changing field is essential to your physical and mental recovery. Attorney Marzzacco has worked with some of the best experts throughout Pennsylvania in the past and can help you get the best medical care and legal experts available.
The effects of TBI can alter an injured person’s life and those of his or her family members. Often, victims of TBI are left in long-term unresponsive states and rely on 24/7 medical care. Fortunately, medical science has evolved dramatically over the recent years and professionals who diagnose and treat TBI have helped the public understand the significance of these debilitating injuries. When one suffers a brain injury, recovery of the functionality of the injured area of the brain is essential and takes time. Long-term inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation is necessary and can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Permanent work disability can result, leaving a victim and their family without income.
After a severe TBI, an injured victim may need extensive rehabilitation from a TBI rehabilitation team. Our lawyers have worked with TBI rehabilitation teams: neurologists, psychiatrists, physical and occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, and neuropsychologists. Together, we help protect injured victims recover monetary damages from the insurance companies for the negligent persons who caused their injuries. Often it is necessary to collect important medical and neuropsychological data throughout the recovery period so that this vital evidence can be presented to an insurance company, a judge, or a jury. Attorney Marzzacco has worked with some of the best experts throughout Pennsylvania in the past and can help you get the best medical care and legal experts available. Often, insurance companies and lawyers for the person or company that caused your injury do not fully appreciate the effects of a TBI on your life and on the lives of your family members. It is often necessary to file a complaint and fight for your rights through the court’s civil justice system. At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, we can raise a voice and help protect your rights.
Our personal injury lawyers can help you make the negligent party’s insurance company pay the damages for medical care, future medical care, wage loss, future loss of earnings, and pain and suffering they caused.
Causes Of Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injuries result from many types of accidents where a person strikes his or her head. Two of the top causes of TBI are vehicle crashes and falls. Vehicle crashes include those where a pedestrian is struck by some type of vehicle or those where drivers or passengers are involved in vehicle collisions. TBI can also result when a person has struck his or her head in a slip and fall; trips and falls; falls off of ladders, roofs, and scaffolding at job sites; and other falls that result from someone else’s negligence.
Whether you or your loved one sustained a TBI as a passenger, driver, or as a pedestrian in a vehicle accident, or if the TBI resulted from a fall because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your losses. Our attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with TBI and are ready to meet with you to discuss your rights.
