Our Lawyers Get Big Settlements for Traumatic Brain Injury Victims
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can be particularly cruel for victims and their families. The outcomes of TBIs can vary from person to person, and while one victim may suffer only minor effects, another person can have severe problems. In some cases, victims can even undergo dramatic personality changes, which can be highly distressing to them and their loved ones.
Personality changes aren’t the only effects of TBIs. It’s common for victims to experience difficulties with fine motor skills, making it difficult or impossible for them to work. They may experience cognitive problems, struggle with language and concepts that were previously easy to grasp, and even suffer physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea, depression, and more.
Unfortunately, insurance companies rarely see the big picture when it comes to TBIs. When they agree to pay settlements, they usually offer far too little compensation for victims and their loved ones. They offer just enough money to cover initial medical bills and lost wages, but they never take into consideration the fact that TBIs can result in lifelong costs and reduced quality of life.
At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke traumatic brain injury lawyers never take TBI claims lightly. We know that they don’t just change one life, but many lives when they occur. Victims may be left unable to earn paychecks to support themselves and their loved ones, while also needing frequent medical care for decades to come.
