Traumatic Brain Injuries
Unlike a physical injury, such as a broken bone or a severed limb, proving that a client has a traumatic brain injury can be tough. Even with the latest imaging technology available, a TBI scan will seldom exhibit the full scope of damage or loss to a brain injury victim.
Over the years, Everett, Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney John M. Williams has successfully represented many TBI victims that were involved in car accidents, truck crashes, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice accidents, assault crimes, and other serious personal injury incidents. If you or someone you love is suffering from a TBI that was caused by another party’s negligence in Washington’s Puget Sound Area, contact Williams Law Offices, PLLC today.
The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control says that 1.4 million people in the US sustain traumatic brain injuries each year. 235,000 TBI victims will require hospitalization, while 50,000 of these patients will die.
Even after a serious personal injury accident, it can take weeks for the symptoms and signs of a traumatic brain injury to appear—and even then, they can be difficult to identify as belonging to a TBI. Memory problems, headaches, mood changes, dizziness, vision problems, nausea, and greater sensitivity to stimuli, are just some of the possible indicators of a TBI. More serious and obvious signs of a TBI are unconsciousness, coma, and obvious brain damage.
Everett, Washington Attorney Williams is sensitive to and understands the psychological and emotional challenges that his TBI clients may be under, and he will work with them to obtain the insurance settlement or jury verdict that will compensate them for medical costs and other damages.
He knows how to document your injury and deficits and describe to a jury or insurance company what you and your life were like before your TBI. Mr. Williams can also make sure that you are being treated by the proper medical specialists, including neurophysiologists and neurosurgeons.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that there are at least 5.3 million people living in the US today with traumatic brain injuries that require ongoing, possibly even lifelong specialized care that can be very costly.
Mr. Williams previously worked as a claims adjuster for large insurance companies, and he will apply this “insider” knowledge, along with his personal injury skills and experience, to obtain the maximum recovery for your traumatic brain injuries. He also will not hesitate to turn your TBI claim into a personal injury lawsuit if the insurer refuses to give you the settlement that your traumatic brain injury warrants.
Washington State has a three-year statute of limitations, from the date of the injury, for a plaintiff to file a traumatic brain injury lawsuit against all negligent parties. If the TBI victim is a minor, the statute of limitations begins when the client turns18 (this exception does not apply to TBI clients injured in medical malpractice accidents).
Many of our Washington TBI clients were injured in King County and Snohomish County, Washington, including Seattle, Lake Forest Park, Woodinville, Bothell, Edmonds, Everett, Lynwood, Marysville, Mill Creek, and Mountlake Terrace.
