The Challenges In Getting Adequate Compensation After A Head Injury
Common causes of brain injuries are motor vehicle accidents, falls from heights, violent attacks and medical mistakes that deprive patients of oxygen. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can happen in just one second and change your life for weeks, months or years to come. It can make it difficult for you to function as you did before in your home and/or work life. However, after the initial bruises or bump on your head heal, other people may assume you are fine – when you are not fine.
At VS Trial Lawyers, we never minimize the struggles of our clients who are recovering from brain injuries. Rather, we encourage our clients to get thorough medical exams from the best available neurologists, neuropsychologists, brain surgeons or other appropriate medical experts.
How Your Diagnosis Can Also Lead To The Most Appropriate Treatment
It may seem like an expensive luxury to get appropriate tests such as:
- Magnetic resonance imagery (an MRI)
- Computed tomography (a CT scan)
- Neuropsychological testing
However, getting the right tests by the right medical specialists may be the key to improvement. Your doctors can prescribe the most appropriate types of treatment and therapy for the short term, as well as for months to come.
At the same time, the results of these types of tests can provide the tangible evidence that you need to prove to a jury or claims adjuster that you have not fully recovered yet, and that you need compensation.
Before you worry about how you will pay for such tests, consult with the personal injury attorneys at VS Trial Lawyers. We are a well-coordinated team of trial lawyers and skillful advocates for our clients recovering from brain injuries and other serious injuries.
