¿Qué es una lesión cerebral traumática?

La definición de lesión cerebral traumática es "una alteración del funcionamiento normal del cerebro que puede ser causada por un golpe, una sacudida o una lesión penetrante en la cabeza". Estas lesiones incluyen:

  • Daños en la integridad estructural del cráneo
  • Daños en el tejido cerebral por movimientos violentos
  • Lesiones en las que se penetra el tejido cerebral

Las LCT van de leves a graves, con síntomas y pronósticos variables.

Minor traumatic brain injuries usually impact a person for a short period of time before they make a complete recovery. More severe traumatic brain injuries can cause bruising, torn tissue, bleeding, and various other physical damage that results in long-lasting complications or death.

¿Qué tipos de casos de lesiones cerebrales maneja el bufete Drake?

Our brain injury attorneys handle all kinds of cases involving brain injuries that were caused by another party's negligence. A few of the most common types of TBI claims we handle include:

Accidentes de coche, camión y moto

Automobile accidents are among the most common causes of brain injuries in the United States. Car accidents are common and many lead to head injuries. Truck accidents are less common, but they involve devastating force that results in an increased chance of a TBI. And motorcycle riders simply have little to no protection and can easily hurt their head when they are struck or ejected from their bike.

Accidentes de peatones y ciclistas

Pedestrians and bicyclists are completely exposed when they are walking or biking near roads. If a car strikes a pedestrian, they are often thrown or crushed from the force of the vehicle. This collision commonly results in brain injuries in serious pedestrian or bicycle collisions.

Negligencia médica

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care, causing an injury to the patient. If the mistake causes a lack of oxygen to the brain, or fails to notice or treat an existing brain issue, a TBI might result.

Lesión de nacimiento

Infant brain damage can happen during childbirth in particular situations that are naturally caused and also in situations involving negligence. The most common causes of birth injury TBIs are the use of an instrument like forceps with excessive force or asphyxiation when the brain is deprived of oxygen for too long.

Resbalones y caídas

When a person slips and falls from a slippery floor or broken staircase, they can easily hit their heads hard enough to result in a brain injury. Some falls are not serious and result in minor injuries. However some can be devastating and lead to long lasting consequences and real pain and suffering.

Accidentes laborales

Some jobs and industries are known to be more hazardous than others. For example, an employee in the construction industry might sustain a brain injury on the job from falling, being crushed, or during a vehicle accident. In these cases, they may be able to recover compensation through workers' compensation benefits. If a party besides the employer was responsible, they might be able to get additional compensation through a third-party personal injury claim.

Indemnización por daños y perjuicios de una lesión cerebral

Getting compensation for a brain injury that was not your fault can make all the difference for you and your family. For the most part, victims and their families are dealing with accumulating bills, stress, and an uncertain future. If your traumatic brain injury is severe, you might be out of work for a long time. In addition to medical bills, you might be able to receive other compensation because of the accident.

Insurance companies will pay the least amount possible because they are in business to make money. They don't care about your injuries; they just care about their profits. If you try to settle, you might not receive enough compensation for past medical bills, never mind future medical expenses and lost time from work.

The various kinds of compensation that you might receive consist of:

  • Gastos médicos anteriores por lesiones sufridas en el accidente.
  • Futuros gastos médicos por próximas intervenciones quirúrgicas y visitas al médico.
  • Terapias físicas, cognitivas y psicológicas. Este tipo de terapias puede prolongarse durante meses o años.
  • Past lost income for time you could not work due to your injuries.
  • Futuros salarios perdidos por el tiempo que no pueda trabajar en el futuro o si tiene que aceptar un puesto peor pagado.
  • Reparación o sustitución del vehículo.
  • Reposición de los bienes personales dañados en el accidente.
  • Loss of companionship if the incident caused injuries severe enough so that you can not enjoy doing things with your loved ones.
  • Pérdida de consorcio si el incidente causó lesiones lo suficientemente graves como para no poder disfrutar de una relación física con su cónyuge.
  • The cost if you need to employ someone for daily tasks, such as grocery shopping, home maintenance, and cleaning.
  • Dolor y sufrimiento si los médicos esperan que sufra sus lesiones a largo plazo.
  • Daños punitivos si las acciones gravemente negligentes del conductor culpable causaron el accidente.

Traumatic brain injuries might be minor or severe and could have long recovery times. Compensation for long-lasting injuries will help you support yourself and your family.
