What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when you suffer a blow or bump to the head. TBIs often develop due to acts of violence, sports injuries, or serious accidents, such as motor vehicle collisions.

Symptoms of TBI include, but are not limited to, the following.

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Loss of coordination
  • Persistent or worsening headache
  • Slurred speech
  • Sudden changes in behavior
  • Weakness or numbness in the extremities
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue or drowsiness

Legal Options for Brain Injury Victims in Boston, MA

Any type of brain injury can result in significant and long-term damage, impacting your financial, emotional, and physical well-being. If you suffer a TBI due to the actions of another person, you may be eligible for financial compensation through a lawsuit or insurance claim.

  • Car Insurance Claims: Massachusetts is a no-fault car accident state. You could file a car accident claim under your own insurance to pay for any injuries that you sustained in a car accident, regardless of who caused the crash. However, brain injuries often qualify as a serious injury under Massachusetts law. If you suffer a TBI, you could pursue a third-party insurance claim against the at-fault driver.
  • Homeowner’s Insurance Claims: If you are injured on someone else’s property and suffer a TBI, you could file a claim under the owner’s insurance policy. Your award will be limited by the homeowner’s policy limits. These claims often involve slip and fall accidents, dog bites and attacks, and unsafe property conditions like aging stairs or inadequate lighting.
  • Personal Injury Lawsuits: If you develop a TBI in an accident or due to an act of violence, you can file a lawsuit against at-fault party in Massachusetts civil court. In your lawsuit, you will need to prove that the defendant breached a certain duty of care, causing your accident and brain injury. 

Your optimal legal pathway will depend on the circumstances surrounding your case. The Boston traumatic brain injury attorney at the Cashman Law Firm can help you understand your legal situation and identify the best option for you.
