Unlike many other accident victims who may display more clearly identifiable signs of injury, people who suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) rarely give ordinary people any indication that they have actually sustained very serious harm. The effects of a TBI can lead to significant cognitive and communication problems, often worsened with the fact that there is no prognosis for recovery.

Common Causes of TBIs in Minnesota
When a person suffers a TBI, it is frequently the result of external force to his or her skull that impacted the brain. Virtually any incident in which a person is currently struck by an object or collides with an object can result in a TBI.
A few of the most frequent causes of TBIs include, but are not limited to:
- Car Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
- Drunk Driving Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Gas Explosions
- Premises Liability
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Defective Products
- Unsafe Toys
It is important to keep in mind that TBIs can frequently result from certain collisions or incidents that initially appear minor in severity. Many TBIs occur during falls in which victims strike their heads while falling.
Severe TBIs can result in victims being in a coma or vegetative state. Some may result in brain death, and family members may be able to pursue wrongful death claims in such instances.
Compensation for TBI Victims
When a person sustains a TBI, it can lead to significant changes in his or her life. Many TBI victims are unable to perform their same jobs at the levels they were once capable of. The difficulty that accompanies many employment endeavors makes it extremely difficult for most victims to support themselves or their families. Many victims can also require very costly rehabilitation.
The insurance companies for negligent parties will minimize the potential consequences of a TBI. Complaints about effects on employment may be dismissed as pre-existing conditions, and proposed settlements will rarely account for a victim’s substantial needs.
Victims who have suffered TBIs need dedicated and knowledgeable legal representation capable of fighting to obtain damages for medical bills, lost wages, and basic pain and suffering. JD Haas & Associates can be your legal advocate tirelessly committed to the pursuit of justice.
