Pursuing Recovery After A Traumatic Brain Injury
Recovering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be a long process. The different phases of the recovery may include:
- Emergency treatment
- Hospitalization, including extensive evaluations and surgery if necessary
- A lengthy recovery in a rehabilitation facility and/or at home
- Ongoing treatment and therapy, possibly including care from specialists such as neuropsychologists
- Management of pain and other lingering effects
- Adaptation to new challenges in daily life
In addition to physical recovery, many people recovering from serious head injuries need multiple types of help as they navigate their new reality in family and community life. The difficulties may seem even greater when insurers question the truthfulness of sufferers’ complaints. Brain injuries can be hard to document when their effects are nearly invisible.
At William J. Tinning, PC, people recovering from head injuries find understanding, skillful investigations and documentation, and determined advocacy in negotiations, mediation or trials.
Building A Strong Injury Claim; Overcoming Obstacles
I am attorney William J. Tinning, and I am proud of my law firm’s strong track record on behalf of head injury survivors. At the same time that I manage communications with your health care providers, I will initiate accident reconstruction efforts as needed. I want to know whose negligence caused or contributed to your accident, such as a:
- Motor vehicle accident
- Car or truck accident
- Fall injury
- Workplace accident
Once I determine this, my legal team and I will prepare a compelling injury claim or lawsuit on your behalf. If your injury happened on the job, I determine whether you have enough evidence to file a third-party liability claim to add to workers’ compensation benefits that you may receive.
I will also be on the lookout for any financial or legal obstacles that may get in the way of a maximized financial recovery for you. For example, there may be a hospital lien designed to help the hospital recover costs of treating you. I urge you not to respond to communications from your hospital about a lien before you consult with a knowledgeable attorney with experience in this area of personal injury law. I have negotiated favorable resolutions of such liens for many of my clients.
