Brain Injuries / Nervous System Damage Claims Lawyer
When a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or nervous system damage occurs, it can alter your life forever. The complex neuropathways in the brain and nervous system are difficult to repair. These injuries can impact almost every aspect of daily function. Many brain or nervous system injuries are caused by preventable accidents, often a result of a dangerous product. When these devastating injuries occur, the product manufacturer may be liable for damages to the victim and their family.
Brain and nervous system injuries from trauma are often caused by impact. A blow to the head or stress to the spine can damage nerves or the brain. The delicate components of the nervous system can be difficult to repair, causing permanent dysfunction or disabilities. Victims of TBI and nervous system injuries may experience ongoing issues, including:
- Cognitive impairment
- Emotional distress
- Chronic pain
- Speech, vision or hearing dysfunction
Those who suffer from TBI or nerve damage may have ongoing problems and require therapy, medications and treatment. It can impact their everyday life, resulting in permanent disability, in some cases. If the injury was caused by a defective or dangerous product, victims may be eligible to receive compensation to help cover medical costs, lost earnings, future income loss and punitive damages for pain and suffering.
Defective Product Accidents that Cause Brain Injuries
Defective products that may cause brain or nerve injury accidents can include:
- Auto accidents caused by defective components
- Electrical shock from defective appliances
- Defective car seat, seat belt or door latch
- Dangerous drugs or medications
- Defective protective sports equipment (helmets)
- Child products (strollers, highchairs, cribs)
If a product was unsafely designed or manufactured with a defect that caused a brain injury accident, the manufacturer and retailer may be liable.
