Consequences of a Philadelphia Brain Injury Lawyer

of trauma. A blow to the head or a piercing strike can all cause injury to the brain. Violent shaking and whiplash-type motions may also lead to injury to the brain. 

As with most injuries, brain injuries vary in severity. They are typically classified as either:

  • Mild
  • Moderate
  • Severe

In all cases, brain injuries are emergencies. If you believe you have suffered one, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Brain Injury Symptoms

Many brain injury symptoms are also symptoms of other conditions. However, if they appear after you have suffered a blow to the head, you could have a brain injury. Symptoms of a brain injury may include:

  • Headaches 
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting
  • Mood changes
  • Light and sound sensitivity

Loss of consciousness is a determining factor in classifying TBIs. If you lost consciousness for more than 30 minutes but less than a day, your brain injury would be moderate. However, loss of consciousness for more than 24 hours due to a brain injury means the damage is severe. 

Compensation and Liability for Brain Injuries

If you are dealing with a brain injury, you are likely well aware of just how much it costs you financially and emotionally to put your life back together. What you may not be aware of is the extent of the compensation you are allowed by law for your losses. 

Pennsylvania law allows you to seek compensation for financial and non-monetary losses you experience because of your brain injury. 

For example, medical treatment for a brain injury can take years and may not even lead to a full recovery. During this time, the injury victim may have to suffer through surgeries and other treatments and pay for expensive medications and therapy. 

Lost income is another type of loss that brain injury victims must contend with. A brain injury might knock someone out of the workforce for an extended time, leaving them scrambling for resources. Fortunately, they can fight to recover this lost income as well as lost future income. 

Pain and suffering, loss of the ability to enjoy life, and disfigurement are also compensable losses. 

Proving Liability

Before you can seek compensation, your Philadelphia brain injury lawyer must first identify the party at fault. How they accomplish this task will depend on how the injury occurs.

Traffic Accident

Your brain injury lawyer must demonstrate that their client’s accident came about due to the negligence of someone else. They will review the evidence in the case to identify the negligent act, such as driving while texting or intoxicated, and take appropriate action.

Slip and Fall Accident

Determining liability in a slip and fall case requires your attorney to find the condition on the property that was dangerous and trace it back to who is responsible for it. Common hazardous conditions on properties include slippery surfaces, faulty stairs and handrails, and dimly lit walkways.

Reckless or Intentional Act

Not all brain injuries occur due to negligence. Intentional acts, such as gunshots, assaults, and other violent crimes, cause thousands of brain injuries each year. Perpetrators can be held responsible for compensation in addition to the criminal charges they face.

Defective Product

A faulty ladder or a defective tire are but two examples of defective products that can cause serious brain injury. Manufacturers, designers, installers, retailers, and marketers are a few of the parties who might be held responsible for an accident caused by a defective product.

Frequently Asked Questions

You should hire a brain injury lawyer to help you get a significantly higher settlement than you would get pursuing the case without representation.

If you or someone you care about suffers from a brain injury, The Joel Bieber Firm has an experienced attorney ready to help. Call our office for a free consultation and learn how you can seek justice for your injuries and losses.

Pennsylvania law gives you two years to file a lawsuit for compensation. After that, your claim may be void. If you suffered a brain injury over two years ago, contact an attorney; your claim may still be viable if an exception applies.

Attorney’s fees for brain injury cases are earned on a contingency basis. So you pay nothing until your attorney successfully recovers monetary compensation for you. The total you pay will be a percentage of your settlement. 

You will also have to pay the costs associated with your claim, such as court and filing fees and the costs to hire experts and investigators.

You should seek immediate medical attention if you suspect you have a brain injury, even if it is a mild one. Once you have received an initial course of treatment, you should speak with an experienced Philadelphia brain injury lawyer.
