Can a traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivor bring a lawsuit to assist in paying for the costs of medical care, rehabilitation, and support?
The ability to successfully bring a lawsuit for compensation for traumatic brain injuries depends on a number of factors. One important factor is the cause of the injury. If a defective product causes an injury, such as an automobile, many states have laws that place responsibility on the manufacturer and distributor of the product to compensate the injured person. If another person is at fault in causing a traumatic brain injury, that person can also often be held responsible for compensating the injured person. Speaking with an attorney who is experienced in representing people with personal injuries and is knowledgeable about traumatic brain injuries is recommended.
