Work injury claims: Calculating the long-term effects of TBI

Each year researchers and medical professionals learn more about the short- and long-term effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI), which too often results from work-related accidents in Texas. Even if you have a good insurance plan, it may not pay the full cost of caring for a brain injury, and you may need to explore your legal options for covering those bills and getting the medical care you need.

In one our articles, we discussed a study on the long-term impact of TBI. The research suggests that conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and post-traumatic dementia, all of which tend to develop later in life, may be linked in some cases to earlier brain injuries. The findings underscore the importance of assessing the full cost of TBI when building a claim for compensation.

Attorney Michael E. Shelton, of The Shelton Law Firm, represents clients who have suffered brain injury under a variety of circumstances, including work-related accidents. Brain injury affects not only the victim, but also the victim's family and potentially the entire community. It is therefore in everyone's best interest to better understand the impact brain injury can have on quality of life and how brain trauma can be prevented.

Often these kinds of injuries prevent people from working or cause them to have to take lower-paying jobs. In addition to lost earnings and medical bills, the cost to be considered in a legal sense could include the victim's pain and suffering. For TBI patients to receive the full measure of due compensation, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney assess the present and future costs of the injury and gather the necessary evidence and testimony to make a strong claim.
