Thousands of Cases Successfully Handled
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are some of the most serious injuries a person can sustain. There is really no such thing as a “minor” brain injury; though some brain injuries are less severe than others, all TBIs can result in lasting, life-altering effects. TBI victims often require extensive medical treatment, including multiple brain surgeries. Even with proper care, their lives may never be the same.
How Our Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help
At Banker Law Group, P.C., we believe that you shouldn't have to suffer the consequences of someone else's negligence on your own. If another person, company, or entity acted negligently or wrongfully, and this led to your or your loved one's brain injury, we can help you fight for fair compensation. Our Anchorage traumatic brain injury lawyer has 20 years of legal experience and has successfully handled thousands of cases. We understand what you need, how the process works, and how to navigate the legal system on your behalf.
Consequences of a Traumatic Brain Injury
As previously mentioned, traumatic brain injuries often result in catastrophic consequences. The nature of the injury—such as whether it was an open-head injury, closed-head injury, or penetrating injury—will play a role in its overall impact. For example, a concussion, which is generally considered a “less serious” brain injury, will likely not have the same devastating effects as a coup-contrecoup brain injury (wherein the brain makes impact with the inside of the skull).
In any case, however, if you suspect that you or your loved one suffered any type of brain injury, immediately seek medical attention. This is absolutely crucial to not only ensure that obvious injuries are treated but also to rule out or treat underlying injuries that are not immediately visible.
Compensation in TBI Cases
Victims of traumatic brain injuries face a challenging road to recovery, but recovery is possible. This is especially true when victims and their families are fairly compensated for their damages. While financial compensation cannot undo the pain and suffering you have been through, it can assist with the financial costs and other burdens associated with your injuries.
At Banker Law Group, we help clients fight for the maximum compensation they are owed for their:
- Medical bills
- Ongoing treatment
- Medical equipment/medications
- Lost income/wages
- Reduced or lost earning ability
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma (anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc.)
- Reduced or lost quality of life
The exact worth of your claim will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of your injuries and the extent of your damages.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim after Suffering a TBI
In the aftermath of the accident, you should immediately seek medical attention from a qualified doctor. If possible, take note of how the accident occurred—if it was a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, record what happened and, if possible, write down the other motorist's information. If applicable, file a police report with Anchorage law enforcement.
You should also keep track of your treatment, as well as the challenges you have faced as a result of your injuries, in a journal. Most importantly, contact an Anchorage TBI attorney who has experience handling brain injury cases. Our firm can help you file your claim and, if the liable insurance party refuses to offer a fair settlement, we can aggressively represent you in trial.
