A traumatic brain injury, also known as a TBI, describes damage or injury to the brain’s tissues and cells from external trauma, such as a blow or bump to the head. An acquired brain injury, on the other hand, is an injury caused by internal issues, such as something that cuts off the brain’s oxygen supply. Both types of brain injuries can lead to personal injury lawsuits in Arizona.
Any type of accident or incident that involves a blow to the head could cause a traumatic brain injury. Common causes include:
Most of these incidents are preventable and stem from negligence, or the failure to use proper care. When negligence results in a TBI, the victim has the right to file a lawsuit.
Every patient is unique. The symptoms that one patient experiences with a TBI might not be the same as a different patient with the same diagnosis. Some of the most common symptoms often shared by brain injury victims are:
These symptoms may only last a few days with a minor brain injury, or they could be permanent with a severe TBI.
There are many different diagnoses for traumatic brain injuries. The most common is a concussion, which could be mild to severe. Other types of brain injuries include contusions, open head injuries, intracranial hematomas, diffuse-axonal injuries, coup-contrecoup injuries, swelling, bleeding, penetrating injuries and second-impact syndrome. All brain injuries are serious and require emergency medical care.
The statute of limitations in Arizona is a law that imposes a deadline on the right to file a civil lawsuit. The statute of limitations on a personal injury case is two years from the date of the accident or injury discovery. If you fail to file by your deadline, the courts will bar you from financial recovery.
If you believe that one or more parties should have prevented your or a loved one’s brain injury, you have every right to file a personal injury claim in pursuit of financial compensation. A lawsuit can hold the at-fault party accountable and provide the financial compensation that your family needs to pay for current and future medical bills and other associated costs.
