Colburn Law

Common Causes of TBI

A TBI occurs when you experience a head injury that results in brain damage. This injury can result in a loss of essential functions, permanent disability, and the need for long-term care. You may need to attend rehabilitation or physical therapy to regain function after your accident.

Accidents that involve a blow to the head, excessive force that shakes the brain, or a foreign object penetrating the skull often result in a TBI. Common causes include:

If you developed a TBI after an accident that someone else caused, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury, you could hold the at-fault party accountable through an insurance claim or lawsuit.

What Damages Are TBI Victims Eligible For?

TBIs range in severity depending on the extent and location of the injury. All brain injuries, from mild to serious, require immediate medical treatment. If the TBI results in long-term complications, you will likely require long-term, ongoing care. You may also be unable to return to your previous job, need to make accommodations to your home or vehicle, and experience physical and emotional pain.

By filing a brain injury lawsuit in Washington civil court, you can hold the person or entity responsible for your accident liable for these losses. You can collect compensation for your economic, or financial, damages, as well as your physical and emotional pain and suffering.

Common damages that TBI victims claim include:

  • All past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and loss of future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Disability accommodations
  • Permanent disability
  • Chronic pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Emotional distress

Since the cost of medical care and other damages can be very high after a TBI, calculating your estimated brain injury settlement can be difficult. Your attorney from Colburn Law will gather evidence, review financial documents, and partner with expert witnesses to calculate long-term care costs and determine your case value.
