Traumatic Brain Injuries
Scottsdale Personal Injury Attorney Handling Catastrophic Injury Cases
Each year in the United States an estimated 1.4 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury ("TBI") - a blow or jolt to the head which can disrupt the critical functions of the brain. The severity of a TBI can range from a mild concussion that will spontaneously resolve within a few hours or days, to a coma or even death. Somewhere in the midst of this wide range of conditions, there are at least 5.3 million Americans who currently live with permanent disabilities that have resulted, at least in part, from a TBI. The leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are:
- Motor vehicle crashes and collisions
- Birth injuries
- Slips and/or falls
The Watkin Law Office, PC represents victims of traumatic brain injuries not just in Scottsdale and Phoenix, but throughout Arizona. (Please also refer to Catastrophic Injury section.)
The Effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury
It should not come as a surprise to anyone that the consequences of a traumatic brain injury/TBI can be severe and life-altering. Our firm understands that beyond the immediate goal of stabilizing the patient's traumatic physical conditions and complications, there will be the sometimes overwhelming confusion that occurs as a result of the mounting medical bills, insurance company inquiries, financial consequences of the victim being out of work (perhaps permanently), and the stress and anxiety of trying to "figure out what to do" now that a family member is badly injured and may never regain full function.
Though we will never insult you by claiming we fully "understand" what you and your family are going through, we do understand the process and have a good sense of the multiple factors that you must cope with as a result of this sudden challenge. We would be honored if you would permit us to discuss your situation in confidence. Let us review the options available to you and discuss how we can ease some of your burden by doing the "heavy lifting" in terms of the insurance claims, pending medical billing claims, and possibly the life-care planning, if needed in your situation.
