Help For You After An Accident

Securing Fair Compensation For Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) may be one of the most serious injuries someone can experience in an accident. The consequences of a TBI can not only change the lives of the injury victim, but the lives of their family as well. If you have suffered a TBI because of someone’s reckless or negligent actions, you need to be sure you are getting the justice you deserve.

Suffering a traumatic brain injury can be a life-altering experience, particularly when it results from a vehicular accident. At Norris Injury Law Group, we understand the devastating impact that TBIs sustained in car, truck, and motorcycle accidents can have on both the victim and their loved ones. We have the skill and experience to help you pursue the outcome you deserve in your injury claim.

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries

When someone suffers a blow or hit to the head, it can result in a TBI. These injuries are more common in car crashes, as the victims suffer greater harm. A crash with a motorcycle has increased chances for a TBI for the motorcyclist, and the victims in an accident with a truck also can experience life-changing injuries.

These injuries can limit a person’s mobility, ability to care for themselves, inhibit their emotional or mental capacities, or completely immobilize them. When these injuries are severe enough, the victim will need to rely on the support and care of their families or caretakers for the rest of their lives.

Common TBI Questions

These injuries are serious, and our clients often have many questions about their injuries and recovery. To help you get the information you need, we have answered some of our more common questions here:

What counts as a traumatic brain injury?

A TBI is an injury that affects how the brain works and can be caused by sudden trauma to the head. Symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain.

How is the value of a TBI case assessed?

The cost of caring for a TBI victim commonly includes medical expenses, lost income, loss of earning potential, loss of life enjoyment, property damage, relocation and renovation costs to adapt to disabilities, and much more. Our goal as your legal representation is to secure the fair and full compensation you deserve for your injuries and their future consequences.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a TBI claim in Iowa?

In Iowa, the statute of limitations for filing a TBI claim is generally two years from the date of the injury. Despite having so much time, it is important to start your claim as soon as possible to earn the income you need, when you need it.
