Brain Injuries

Connecticut Brain Injury Lawyer

Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) involves damage to the brain caused by trauma, including a bump, jolt, or blow to the head. Some TBIs can be mild and result in only a brief change in cognitive ability. Others can be severe. The effects of a severe TBI can include lengthy unconsciousness, coma, or even death.

Sadly, many brain injuries occur as a result of someone’s careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct. When this is the case, victims and/or their loved ones can seek justice and work to hold the at-fault party liable for their resulting damages. If you believe you may have a TBI case, contact our Connecticut brain injury lawyers at Carter Mario Law Firm for a free consultation today. We can go over the details of your case and help you determine whether you are entitled to receive compensation for your medical bills, future medical care costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.

There are no fees unless we recover compensation for you. Contact Carter Mario Law Firm online or by phone at (203) 806-9256 to request a free consultation today.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Any traumatic accident or incident can lead to TBI if a victim suffers a blow to the head, sudden acceleration/deceleration, or violent movements of the head and/or neck.

Some of the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries include:

If you believe your brain injury or your loved one’s TBI was the result of negligence, wrongdoing, or a preventable accident, we encourage you to reach out to our firm right away to learn how our Connecticut brain injury lawyers can help you protect your rights.

The Impact of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Brain injuries are incredibly serious, and even relatively “mild” TBIs can have long-lasting effects. In severe cases, victims will never be able to return to the same life they once enjoyed.

TBIs and other significant head injuries can adversely impact an accident victim’s ability to:

  • Create memories
  • Engage with others
  • Learn or reason
  • Pay attention
  • See, hear, or speak
  • Solve problems
  • Think abstractly
  • Understand language
  • Walk or move

On top of this, TBI victims need extensive medical attention and ongoing care to effectively treat their catastrophic injuries. This means multiple doctors’ visits, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, surgeries, and, in some cases, lifelong in-home care. This adds significant financial strain on victims and families already struggling to cope with the physical and emotional impacts of a TBI.

Damages in Brain Injury Cases

When another person, company, government entity, or some other party is liable for your injuries, you can file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your damages. “Damages” is a legal term used to describe any/all losses experienced by the plaintiff due to his or her injuries.

When it comes to brain injury cases, damages are often extensive. Our firm helps clients seek compensation for the following:

  • Emergency medical treatment
  • Ambulance and hospital fees
  • Diagnostic testing, surgery, and other care
  • Physical/cognitive rehabilitation therapy
  • Future projected medical care costs
  • Medications and medical equipment/devices
  • Modifications to a home
  • In-home care costs
  • Lost income, wages, and employment benefits
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Future lost earnings
  • Counseling services for the treatment of emotional trauma related to the injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Inconvenience and lost quality of life

In rare cases, we may also be able to pursue punitive damages. Unlike the compensatory damages listed above, punitive damages are not meant to compensate the victim for losses but, rather, to punish the defendant for egregious negligence and/or disregard for human life. These types of damages may be recoverable in cases involving assault and other wrongful acts.
