Check the Victim 

If you witness a head injury, the effects might not be visible right away. Stay with the victim and ensure that he or she is coherent and alert. If you are the victim, make sure you are not left alone. 

Administer First Aid 

If the victim has an open wound on their scalp, apply pressure. To reduce swelling, apply a cold pack over the injury site. 

Get Help 

If you notice that the victim is drowsy, confused, or in worsening condition, get medical help immediately or call 911. 

Call a Lawyer 

If you believe the injury is the result of a negligent or reckless party's action, contact a lawyer to find out whether you have grounds for a lawsuit.

What are some common causes of traumatic brain injury? 

There are many types of TBIs...

Lawsuit or Settlement: We Will Do Whatever It Takes

Although he will try to secure a just settlement in your case, Mr. Harris will not hesitate to go to trial if he cannot secure the amount of compensation you truly need. Rest assured: he will not settle for less than you deserve.

How do you know if your injury justifies a case? 

The Essential Factors

Cause of the Injury 

In order to be eligible to recover damages, you must be able to prove that your brain injury was caused by another party. This party can include a reckless driver who caused a car accident, a negligent property owner, or others. 

Cause of Losses

You must also be able to prove that your losses are directly caused by your injury. In order to build a compelling case early on, be sure to save any medical bills or records.

Damages

In order to recover compensation, your injury must have caused damages. These can include monetary losses such as lost wages or medical bills, as well as intangible damages such as pain and suffering. 

What happens when someone suffers a TBI?

The Symptoms of TBI Can Cause Physical and Emotional Changes 

Physical Symptoms 

A traumatic brain injury can cause immediate loss of consciousness, headaches, and nausea. These symptoms can develop into more long-term issues such as insomnia, lack of coordination, and difficulty speaking. 

Sensory Symptoms 

Some types of brain injury can affect your senses. Some victims become sensitive to lights and sounds, develop tinnitus, or find that their sense of smell is affected. 

Cognitive Symptoms

Brain injuries can also cause difficulty concentrating, memory loss, depression, and anxiety. These cognitive symptoms can make everyday life very difficult and even affect your ability to work

Why do you need to hire a lawyer? 

A Lawyer  Can Be the Key to Easing the Burden of a TBI

Prove the Lifelong Consequences

Because the brain is an organ that cannot regenerate cells, the effects of a brain injury are permanent in many cases. If you have ongoing physical or emotional symptoms, you will need compensation to fund your lifelong pain and suffering. Your attorney can demonstrate this need with the help of experts.

Recover Compensation for Long-Term Care 

By demonstrating the true extent of your injuries and their effects, your attorney can help you collect compensation for in-home care, therapy, and other services that may be required for the rest of your life. 

Establish Negligence 

Proving negligence is not only essential to your case, but also a means of helping to prevent other similar injuries in the future.

The Statute of Limitations  Is Crucial

In the state of Utah, the time limit to file a personal injury lawsuit is four years after the date that the injury occurred.

Because different types of injuries, such as those caused by medical malpractice, have shorter time limits, it is important to speak to a lawyer who can evaluate your case as soon as possible.

Why Seek Legal Counsel in a TBI Case?

A brain injury is one of the most severe injuries that a person can suffer, and also one of the most expensive. A TBI can result from a sudden trauma to the brain, be it due to a car accident, a slip-and-fall accident, blow to the head, or other causes. In some cases, medical tests may not be able to detect a TBI immediately after an accident, and it only becomes apparent when the victim tries to undertake complex tasks. In very tragic cases, these serious injuries can lead to severe mental impairment, or even wrongful death

The effects of a brain injury may include persistent headaches, difficulty focusing, fatigue, forgetfulness, impaired judgment, and restlessness. Physical limitations can require years of medical treatment, therapy, and ongoing care. Victims of a TBI are often left unable to care for themselves or earn a wage. Even if victims do work, their injuries might force them to take a lower-paying job. 

Given its grave consequences and the complex nature of the related medical issues for a TBI, it is imperative that the victim and their family hire an attorney who can gather the right evidence and illustrate the full extent of your losses. Lynn C. Harris can help you navigate the laws surrounding personal injury litigation in Utah. He can help you pursue and secure the compensation to which you are entitled. 

Claiming Compensation

When you or your family members choose to seek help, Mr. Harris can immediately begin the painstaking process of building your case. This process involves extensive research into the nature of your injury, collecting evidence to prove third-party negligence, interviewing any eye witnesses, and more. The more information you can provide him, the better your chances of establishing third-party liability and winning your claim.

With his unique experience and legal expertise, Mr. Harris can represent your best interests and secure the damages you deserve after a debilitating accident. 

He will take several factors into consideration while pursuing your due restitution. He will consider the loss of present and future earning potential, present and future medical expenses, and ongoing care costs to maximize damages for you and your loved ones. Though money cannot make up for emotional trauma, he also strives to recover damages for non-financial losses to help you face the future. This additional restitution may include compensation for pain and suffering and loss of consortium to a partner or spouse. He also has a policy of no-recovery, no-fee. In other words, if he takes your personal injury claim and does not recover any damages, you pay will not owe him any fees.
