Colburn Law

Kirkland Brain Injury Attorney

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when you sustain any damage to your brain that results in brain dysfunction. Often, TBIs develop after you suffer a blow to the head, when a force violently shakes your brain, or when an object penetrates your skull.

If you are in an accident that leaves you with a TBI, you may be eligible for financial compensation. In these situations, trust the Kirkland brain injury lawyers at Colburn Law to fight tenaciously for your full recovery.

Symptoms of TBI

A TBI can result in a wide range of symptoms, depending on the severity and location of the injury. You may experience symptoms immediately after the accident, or they may appear days or weeks after the event.

Mild TBI often results in the following symptoms:

  • Brief loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Headache
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Memory and concentration issues
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Mood swings or changes in mood
  • Sleep and speech problems
  • Loss of balance

If you develop a moderate or severe TBI, you may experience the following:

  • Slurred speech
  • Seizures and convulsions
  • Prolonged loss of consciousness
  • Loss of coordination
  • Clear fluids draining from nose or ears
  • Persistent vomiting, nausea, or headache
  • Confusion, agitation, and other unusual behavior

You should always go to the doctor after experiencing any head injury, even if you do not feel hurt. Without prompt treatment, a TBI can result in dangerous complications, such as coma or death.

Filing a TBI Claim in Washington

Many accidents can cause a TBI, including car collisions, workplace accidents, and slip and falls. In some cases, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim to recover your TBI-related damages, such as medical expenses or lost wages. In these processes, you will need to prove that an at-fault party caused the accident and is liable for your injury and resulting damages.

If you sustained a TBI while at work, you may be eligible for a workers’ compensation claim. You will need to submit a claim to the Washington Department of Labor & Industries (L&I), proving that you sustained the injury while performing your work-related duties.

In either case, you will need an attorney on your side to advocate for you and your maximum recovery during each stage of your claim. Your attorney will prepare a compelling claim for your right to compensation, negotiate with insurance companies, and help you calculate your long-term care costs so you can secure a sufficient settlement.
