Protecting Your Legal Rights after a Traumatic Brain Injury

By Dianne Freed on February 7, 2019

Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer in MarylandAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1.7 million persons sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year in the United States. TBI victims often incur significant economic and noneconomic losses, including medical expenses, lost income, lost quality of life, and physical and emotional pain and suffering. When TBIs occur in accidents caused by the negligence of others, however, victims can typically recover compensation for their accident-related losses.

If you or a family member suffered a TBI, protect your legal rights. Four of the most important are detailed below. For more information, consult an experienced Maryland personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.

Seek Medical Attention and Follow Your Treatment Plan

If you hit your head and feel off in any way, seek medical attention as soon you as you can. Some symptoms to look out for include a headache, memory problems, nausea, drowsiness, and sensitivity to light and sound. Even a mild traumatic brain injury (such as a concussion) is a serious matter that requires a thorough evaluation by a medical professional. In addition, follow your treatment plan closely and attend all follow-up appointments.

Pay Attention to Your Social Media Use

The things you post on social media could leave an impact on the way your case resolves. It’s only natural that all of us want to present the best version of our lives online, but the insurance company will use posts that indicate that you’re enjoying yourself or physically active to argue that you’re not as injured as you claim. Refrain from using social media entirely while your case is pending.

Contact a Lawyer as Soon as You Can

Finally, call a lawyer as soon as you can after sustaining a TBI in an accident. A lawyer will represent you in all communications with the insurance company or the party responsible for your injury, making sure that you do not say anything that hurts your case. In addition, your attorney will evaluate your case and determine a fair settlement amount. If the insurance company or at-fault party refuses to agree to a reasonable settlement offer, your lawyer can file a lawsuit on your behalf so that you can recover sufficient compensation.
