Missouri Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a strong impact or penetration to the head disrupts the brain’s ability to function normally. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 1.7 million people obtain traumatic brain injuries each year, and they’re most commonly caused by motor vehicle accidents and falls. While some of these TBIs, such as minor concussions, require minimal medical treatment, many TBIs are severe and life-altering. Those who suffer a TBI due to someone else’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional behavior deserve to be compensated for their losses.

Estimating the value of compensation due to a TBI survivor is complicated. Traumatic brain injury cases are different from most other types of Missouri personal injury claims. TBIs are medically complex injuries, and aren’t always immediately diagnosed. Most of the time, it’s unclear what the long-term impact of a TBI will be. In some cases, symptoms will improve, or resolve completely, while other times, a traumatic brain injury can result in lasting cognitive problems, memory issues, vision problems, seizures, or other permanent changes. Some TBIs can require expensive surgeries and life-long medical treatment. When your TBI was caused by someone else’s negligent behavior, you deserve to receive compensation that will afford you the best medical treatment possible for years to come.

Additionally, some TBI survivors suffer permanent changes in personality, emotional stability, and intellect. These can have an profound effect on their lives, and may require them to change professions or even completely stop working. When this happens, they are entitled to money for future lost or reduced earnings.

If you’re filing a TBI lawsuit, it’s important to hire a Missouri personal injury lawyer such as Chris Dixon, who has experience in TBI cases, and can accurately estimate the worth of a TBI claim.  Missouri traumatic brain injury lawyer Chris Dixon has the knowledge necessary to aggressively and effectively advocate for those who have obtained a TBI due to someone else’s negligence.

If you’ve suffered a TBI, one of your immediate concerns is probably the cost of your medical treatment. Even if you have your own health insurance, you may still have to pay a deductible, or for treatments that your insurance won’t cover. It can be extremely stressful to deal with mounting medical bills while recovering from a head injury, and if you’re contacted by the other party’s insurance company, you may be quick to accept a settlement offer that’s far less than what you’re entitled to.  This is why it’s important to contact a St. Louis traumatic brain injury lawyer such as Christopher Dixon as soon as possible following a head injury.

St. Louis TBI accident lawyer Christopher Dixon recognizes that traumatic brain injuries can have a devastating effect on the lives of those who suffer from them, as well as their loved ones. He’s committed to providing compassionate, effective representation to TBI survivors and their families, in St. Louis, and throughout Missouri.
