Suffering a traumatic brain injury can alter your life, and the lives of your loved ones, in many ways. Brain injuries, also commonly known as head injuries, can be caused by many situations: sudden blows or jolts to the head, impact that leads to bleeding in the brain, or tears that disconnect the brain from the rest of the body. These injuries can happen during car accidents, work accidents and other negligence, such as faulty product manufacturing or poor property managers.

Having an experienced attorney on your side helps you and those who are affected by your injury handle medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. The team at Cruz & Associates is here to help you with your workers’ compensation claim.

Defining a Traumatic Brain Injury

A concussion is the most common type of brain injury, stemming from a sudden, severe impact to the brain. Contusion, or bleeding of the brain, is also a common type of brain injury. Diffuse axonal injury is possibly the most severe brain injury because it can disconnect your brain from the rest of your body, leading to lifelong damage or death. Signs of traumatic brain injury include:

  • Dizziness and blurred vision
  • Memory changes
  • Anxiety and mood changes
  • Ringing in ears
  • Light sensitivity and more
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Change in sleep patterns
  • Speech issues

Filing a Lawsuit

Traumatic brain injuries can occur in the blink of an eye and often are not the fault of the injured. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to the negligence of a third party, you may have a case for compensation.

Working with Your Attorney

Your first step in filing a lawsuit is to contact our team at Cruz & Associates. Your free consultation will allow you to explain your situation and discuss how we can help you. It’s not always easy to put together a viable lawsuit for injuries, so it’s important to have expert legal aid on your side. Our bilingual attorneys are skilled in walking through your situation, finding where the fault lies, and getting you the compensation you need.

Your Settlement

If your lawsuit constitutes a settlement, the amount will depend on the severity of the brain injury. The more severe your brain injury, the more likely you are to receive legal compensation. Your attorney will be essential in achieving the correct settlement for your situation. Our legal team will help calculate your economic losses, which can include medical expenses, property damage and lost wages. We’ll also calculate the more difficult, non-economic damages such as lost quality of life, emotional distress, psychological damage and more.
