An Experienced Cincinnati Personal Injury Attorney Knows How To Build A Strong Case
One of the first things our lawyers will do is investigate the accident that caused your TBI. While many things can cause a head injury, there are some accidents that often result in them, including:
- Car crashes
- Trucking wrecks
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
- Falls from ladders and scaffolds
Our attorneys often see clients who were injured in auto or motorcycle accidents in and around Cincinnati on I-71, I-74, I-75 and other busy roads. Bicycle and pedestrian accidents happen frequently in the city, on the trails in the area of River Road and Eastern Avenue, and in the OTR district. Regardless of the location of the accident, our team can help you.
Consequences Of TBI
Any hard blow to the body can cause a TBI. Even if you do not hit your head, the force of the accident on your body can cause your brain to bounce against your skull.
That is one reason why it’s important to get medical care after a vehicle accident, fall or other incident. If it’s a concussion/mild TBI, then the symptoms may not be apparent at first. A doctor should examine you even if you feel OK. When you have a moderate or severe TBI, you need immediate medical attention.
Depending on their severity, these injuries can cause:
- Trouble speaking
- Mood and personality changes
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of consciousness
If your loved one died as a result of a TBI, then we will file a wrongful death suit. Your family can get compensation for medical bills prior to death, pain and suffering prior to death, loss of future income and benefits, and funeral and burial expenses. Depending on the details of the case, you may be able to recover additional damages.
