Philadelphia Brain Injury Lawyers
You Can File a TBI Claim with Our Help
Did you suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to someone else’s mistake? You should not have to deal with all of the financial and lifelong consequences of what they did on your own. It is only right that they contribute to or pay for your medical needs, lost wages, and more. To make that happen, you’ll likely need to file a TBI lawsuit against them.
Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC and our Philadelphia brain injury attorneys are here to help guide you through the process of filing a TBI claim. With our contingency fee agreements, you can get our counsel and representation without paying any attorney fees upfront. Instead, we only get paid if we secure a positive settlement or award for you. In other words, we make pursuing compensation after a TBI virtually risk-free.
What are the Permanent Symptoms of a Brain Injury?
Brain injuries are notorious among medical experts for being some of the worst possible injuries someone can suffer. Not only do most brain injuries not heal on their own, but they also cause unpredictable symptoms. Due to these factors alone, treating a brain injury can be just as complicated as living with one.
A brain injury can cause various symptoms, such as:
- Amnesia and memory issues
- Loss of skeletomuscular control
- Speech impediments
- Chronic pain and migraines
- Learning difficulties
- Depression and anxiety
This list of symptoms is brief compared to all the complications a brain injury can cause, though. If you were in an accident that might have caused you to suffer a brain injury, and you are experiencing any sort of symptom that could indicate as much, then it is imperative that you see a medical professional as soon as possible. An early diagnosis of a brain injury is oftentimes the first step in minimizing the overall harm it will do.
Can a Concussion Cause Permanent Brain Damage?
According to neurosurgeons, there is no such thing as a "minor" concussion. Any concussion has the potential to cause serious damage to the brain, especially if it goes untreated and undiagnosed. Any time you suffer a concussion, whether in a car accident, during sports practice, after a slip-and-fall, etc. it's imperative that you seek medical attention in order to determine how severe your injuries may be.
Concussions can be particularly dangerous if you suffered an initial concussion and then suffered another concussion shortly afterwards.
High-Value Compensation for Brain Injury Claims
Your traumatic brain injury claim has a certain dollar value, which reflects the damages you have endured and will likely incur in the future. Figuring out that dollar value is part of what we do as your chosen Philadelphia TBI attorneys. We want to uncover all possible damages to raise the value of your case as much as possible. To make this happen, we might also need to file against multiple insurance policies held by the defendant or defendants. Finding those insurance policies is another way that we can help you while you focus on your rest and health.
Your brain injury claim could include damages that help pay for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Lessened enjoyment of life
Our legal team would also like to connect with your treating physician to get a better understanding of your brain injury. If there are any additional complications or notes in our prognosis, then we need to know them. For example, if your doctor believes your brain injury will likely remove several years off your expected lifespan, then you can be compensated for that loss, too.
