Common Traumatic Brain Injuries 

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a sudden injury or damage to the brain which often affects its proper functioning. A traumatic brain injury may occur due to a sudden jolt, blow, or bump to the head or whiplash motion. In fact, you don't necessarily need to hit your head to sustain a TBI. Here are some common examples of traumatic brain injuries: 

  • Concussion 

  • Edema 

  • Skull fractures 

  • Intracranial hematoma 

  • Diffuse axonal injury 

Getting a proper diagnosis is crucial to determine the type and extent of your traumatic brain injury. It’s incredibly important to receive immediate medical treatment for both personal and legal reasons. 

Getting Properly Diagnosed 

If you experience symptoms of traumatic brain injury or concussion, you need to seek a proper diagnosis of your medical condition. This is essential for your health, safety, and general well-being. At times, TBI symptoms may be hidden or take longer to fully manifest. 

With a proper medical diagnosis, a qualified doctor can determine the magnitude of your brain injury or any hidden symptoms. Also, proper diagnosis is crucial for official documentation of your injuries and medical condition when filing your claim. This ensures that you comply with insurance requirements and avoid possible issues with the insurer.

Legal Challenges of a TBI Claim 

A traumatic brain injury can be overwhelming, significantly affecting every aspect of your life. Unfortunately, this type of damage to the brain is unique, and MRIs or X-ray scans may be unable to detect it. In fact, tests and scans may be unable to detect when the injury will fully manifest. Hence, it might be very difficult to prove significant evidence of traumatic brain injury. 

After a brain injury, you need the right legal and medical team to determine the extent of your injuries and explore your legal options. Your medical team externally may include neuropsychologists, neurologists, and cognitive rehabilitation experts. Your internal medical team includes a Medical Case Manager who is also a Registered Nurse.

Furthermore, the Washington State traumatic brain injury attorneys at our firm will work together with other experienced healthcare professionals to make sure you're provided with proper cognitive testing and adequate treatment. Our attorneys and team of case managers will handle the official documentation of your brain injuries, treatments received, medical bills, and rehabilitation. 

Filing a Claim When a Loved One Is Incapacitated   

The first step to seek damages on behalf of an incapacitated loved one in Washington State is by establishing adult guardianship. The legal guardian appointed by the court can file a personal injury claim on behalf of the incapacitated person to seek financial compensation for their brain injury. This usually is a spouse, sibling, or parent. A skilled lawyer can walk you through the legal procedures involved and help ensure a favorable outcome. Some attorneys hire outside counsel, but here at Perez & Perez Law PLLC we have the internal expertise to include this service for all of our clients.
