Traumatic brain injuries are common personal injuries that are underdiagnosed and not well-understood. According to the Centers for Disease Control, slip and falls “lead to nearly half of the TBI-related hospitalizations,” but auto accidents, physical assaults, and athletic activities are other common causes of brain injury.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), and concussion are all terms for what happens to the brain when a person sustains a blow to the head. These injuries can be hard to diagnose because, unlike an injury to an arm or a leg that leaves bruises or abrasions that are visible to the naked eye, a bruise to the brain remains hidden inside the skull. Outward symptoms of a brain injury can develop quickly or may evolve across days and weeks. Symptoms can be as severe as a blackout or coma, or they may be so mild that they are barely noticeable.

Mild symptoms of a brain injury need to be taken as seriously as more severe symptoms. A blow to the head can result in brain swelling or internal bleeding, the results of which can be catastrophic — even deadly — if not treated immediately or properly.

Do You Have a Brain Injury Case?

TBIs can occur from a variety of accidents, such as workplace injuries, medical malpractice, falls, and motor vehicle accidents. A TBI occurs when an external force causes damage or dysfunction in the brain tissue.

If you suspect you or a loved one have suffered a TBI due to someone else’s negligence, it is crucial to take action quickly. You may be entitled to compensation, but the statute of limitations in Tennessee is only one year. This means that you have one year from the date of your injury to file a claim for compensation.

Our brain injury attorneys offer a free case review to help you understand your legal options and the potential compensation you may be entitled to. We will evaluate the cause of your TBI and the extent of your injuries, and provide you with legal advice to make the best decision for your situation.

Compensation in Brain Injury Claims

Brain injury claims can be complex and require a thorough evaluation of the specific circumstances of each case. Our attorneys at The McMahan Law Firm have experience in handling brain injury cases and can help you determine the damages you may be entitled to.

In general, damages in a brain injury claim may include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. The amount of compensation you may be entitled to will depend on various factors, such as the severity of the injury, the extent of any ongoing medical treatment, and the impact the injury has had on your life.

In many cases, injured individuals are unaware of the damages they could recover, and by handling everything on their own, they miss out on much-needed compensation for their losses. Don’t miss out on the settlement you deserve — contact Jay and Brent to get the most out of your claim.

Proving the Extent of Your Injuries

Proving liability in a Chattanooga, TN, brain injury case can be a challenging task. Unlike other physical injuries, brain injuries can be difficult to detect and quantify, and their symptoms may not manifest until weeks, months, or even years after the injury occurred. Additionally, brain injuries can result from a wide range of accidents, including car accidents, slip and falls, and workplace accidents.

To establish liability, it may be necessary to call upon the testimony of a neurologist, neuropsychologist, or other medical expert who can speak to the long-term effects of the brain injury on the victim’s physical, emotional, and cognitive well-being. Furthermore, the defendant may argue that the victim’s brain injury was caused by a pre-existing condition or unrelated event, making it all the more important to have one of our experienced and knowledgeable brain injury lawyers on your side to build a strong case.

Traumatic Brain Injury FAQs

In the best-case scenario after a brain injury, the patient heals over time and all brain functions return to normal. Unfortunately, many brain injury cases don’t turn out that way. Closed head injuries can leave a lifetime of symptoms like personality changes, emotional difficulties, and depression. Memory, muscle control, logical thinking skills, and speaking abilities are also frequently affected. Seeking medical attention immediately will increase your chances of recovering from this injury.

Yes, a stroke can cause a TBI.

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, which can result in brain damage. Depending on the severity of the stroke and the part of the brain affected, a person may experience a wide range of symptoms and long-term effects.

While it is possible to file a brain injury lawsuit without a lawyer, it can seriously damage your likelihood of receiving fair compensation.

Brain injury cases can be complex, and having our reliable and competent attorneys on your side can significantly increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome.

After suffering a serious head injury, it’s important to seek medical attention right away. Even if you feel fine, some brain injuries may not show symptoms immediately and can worsen over time.

If your injury was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, speak with our office as soon as possible to protect your legal rights and your claim to compensation.
