Traumatic Brain Injuries from North Carolina and South Carolina Motorcycle Accidents
Any manner of trauma or impact to the head needs to be taken seriously. After a motorcycle accident, instances of injury to the brain are commonplace. Even with the use of a helmet, the brain can still be vulnerable to impact sufficient to cause concussions, bleeding on the brain, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), all of which can vary in severity. If you or your loved one has suffered a brain injury in an accident, you need to secure necessary medical care as soon as possible.
As North Carolina and South Carolina brain injury lawyers and avid riders, The Karney Law Firm will work hard to get our clients the compensation they need to pay for medical care, as well as lost wages, continuing rehabilitation and other expenses incurred after a motorcycle accident. We will look at how your misfortune occurred, who was at fault and what benefits you are entitled to as a result. We can also mediate with the insurance company so that you and your family can focus on recovery.
Many accident victims feel they have not sustained a severe injury. This may not necessarily be the case. TBI (traumatic brain injury) is one of the most frequently missed diagnoses after a serious accident. Symptoms of brain trauma could take weeks or months to appear.
If you or your loved one have been experiencing any of the following symptoms: personality changes, forgetfulness, disorganization, and/or seizures; please contact the Karney Law Firm. We will refer you to qualified medical professionals to determine if your symptoms are the result of head trauma. By statute, victims have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. We recommend that if you suspect that you or a loved one has a brain injury, you should contact Karney Law Firm as soon as possible to preserve your legal claim.
Costs of Brain Injuries
Even a so-called “mild” traumatic brain injury needs to be taken seriously due to the complications the damage can cause for an accident victim and his or her family. Symptoms of brains injuries may get worse over time, making them hard to detect initially, with some victims requiring a lifetime of care.
Compensation after an accident may be necessary for the following:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitative costs
- Lost wages related to the injury
- Nursing and assistive technology
- MRI tests and CT brain scans
