Macomb Law Group, Traumatic Brain Injury Law Firm in Metro Detroit
Some of the most serious personal injury accidents result in traumatic brain injury. These cases require special attention from a law firm equipped with the knowledge and experience to handle TBI patients’ continuing needs.
Concussions and Auto Insurance Claims
Mild traumatic brain injuries can often go undetected after an auto accident. The shock of a car crash can cover the symptoms of a concussion and hide the fact that significant damage has been done to the brain. Often, motorists with mild TBI forget to even include it on the auto insurance claims application they file immediately after the crash.
This can cause problems when secondary injuries caused by swelling or bruising inside the skull interfere with the brain function and require more treatment later on. Often, insurance companies will deny claims for auto insurance benefits related to traumatic brain injury, claiming the injury was not disclosed, or was not related to the accident.
When that happens, we can help you protect your claim, and sue for medical expenses, lost wages, and replacement service benefits you are entitled to under the Michigan No-Fault Act. Our attorneys know the signs of auto-accident-related TBI. We will work with your doctors to prove that the symptoms you struggle with now are the results of a motor vehicle accident
Traumatic Brain Injury in Product Defects Cases
Traumatic brain injuries are also common in product defects cases. Sometimes, they are the result of a sudden impact caused by the defective product itself. Other times, flaws in the design or manufacture cause consumers to be exposed to toxic chemicals that harm the brain over time. In these cases, it can take skilled legal work paired with the testimony of expert physicians to connect the dots between your symptoms and the product defect that caused the traumatic brain injury.
Ongoing Treatment in Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
No matter what form your personal injury lawsuit takes, traumatic brain injuries bring special needs and ongoing treatment. While some TBI patients recover fully within the first weeks or months, others require rehabilitation and occupational therapy for years. Some may never regain full use of their faculties. When a traumatic brain injury requires ongoing treatment, we can help you account for the costs and find sources for ongoing medical support. Whether from lifetime no-fault medical expense benefits, or a one-time personal injury award, you need to know there will be enough to take care of you no matter how long your recovery.
