Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries In Auto Accidents

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are among the most extreme injuries someone can experience, especially when they result from vehicle accidents. TBIs can have a profound impact on a person’s quality of life, affecting their ability to work, engage in social activities, and perform daily tasks. When these injuries can have a lifetime of consequences, it is vital to pursue compensation that covers those consequences now, and in the future.

My goal is to ensure that you or your loved ones receive comprehensive legal support during this challenging time.

Traumatic Brain Injury FAQs

Many clients in these claims have questions about their path to recovery after a motorcycle accident or other crash. When you need answers about your claim, you can find the information you are looking for here. Some common questions my clients have include:

What counts as a traumatic brain injury?

A TBI can present itself in a wide range of symptoms after a truck accident, but it commonly results from a sudden and violent blow to the head. Symptoms of these injuries can include concussions, memory issues, trouble staying awake or falling asleep, migraines and nausea. If you are experiencing these or other ailments after an accident, it is vital that you seek medical attention immediately.

How is the value of a TBI case assessed?

The compensation from any personal injury claim is based on the costs associated with the victim’s injuries. Medical expenses, lost income, loss of earning potential, long-term needs, therapy, and other costs and consequences can all increase the compensation a victim deserves. My goal as your legal representation is to maximize the settlement you receive so that it reflects the future and present expenses of your injuries.

What are the statutes of limitations for filing a TBI claim in Iowa?

In Iowa, the statute of limitations for filing a TBI claim is typically two years from the date of the injury. Despite how long this may seem, it is important to start your claim as soon as possible after your car accident. The sooner you reach out to me about your injury claim, the sooner you can receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
