Helping TBI Survivors Get Compensation For 50 Years
In Washington state, around 30,000 people suffer a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, every year. If you are one of these people, you probably felt terrified when you received your diagnosis. When the brain suffers a traumatic injury, the damage can be catastrophic — even in mild cases. TBIs can also cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, therapy and lost wages.
If an accident involving negligence contributed to your TBI, Elk & Elk can represent you. For 50 years, we have fought to help TBI survivors get compensation to cover their damages and hold the perpetrators accountable. If you live in the Seattle area and wish to explore your legal options, Elk & Elk is ready to help you.
Do You Recognize The Symptoms Of TBI?
Many victims of traumatic brain injuries do not even realize that they have them. Symptoms of TBI do not always appear immediately after an accident; they can take weeks, or even months, to manifest. Symptoms can include:
- Persistent headaches
- Dizziness or disorientation
- Changes in personality
- Impairment to motor skills or coordination
- Memory loss
If you have experienced one or more of these symptoms following your accident, contact a medical professional for an examination.
Cyclists Face Dangerous Head Injuries Every Day
Seattle is known as a bike-friendly city. But riders face a serious risk of traumatic brain injuries. Wearing a helmet dramatically reduces the risk of a brain injury, but even a helmet cannot protect the skull from some collisions involving cars or trucks. If you were in a bike accident and hit your head, you should have a doctor assess you for a TBI — even if you were wearing a helmet.
