Don’t Let Your Future Drift Away: Hire an Attorney if You Have a TBI After a Boating Accident

Unfortunately, you were one of the many thousands of victims who experienced a traumatic brain injury this year. And like many, your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. A drunken boater collided with your vessel and you hit your head upon impact.

You were rushed to the emergency room at Saint Alphonsus and were told you had a coup-countrecoup injury. The doctor told you to take a wait-and-see approach to determine the severity of the injury and whether there will be permanent effects.

Why You Should Hire an Attorney After a Boat Crash

Unfortunately, your injury is taking much longer to heal than you expected. You’re missing more time from work than you would like, and you’re visiting the doctor almost every day. You feel like hiring a lawyer is overkill in this situation, but it’s not, and here’s why:

  • TBIs are expensive. Have you ever thought about how much money each one of your tests costs, or how much you are charged every time you walk into your doctor’s office? Even if you don’t know the exact amount, you can trust that it is expensive. In addition to medical treatment for your injuries, you’ll also miss work, which will definitely affect your paycheck. These types of brain injuries require costly treatment now, and likely in the future, as well. A lawyer may be able to help you recover the damages.
  • Your life has changed. You can’t get up and go for a run like you used to. You can’t even have a conversation with your wife anymore without having to stop and gather your thoughts. It’s safe to say your world has been turned upside down because of this TBI, and the scary truth is that it may never be the same. If you feel you deserve some type of compensation for that, you’re not alone. An attorney may be able to get you compensation that can attempt to make up for the changes in your life that are the result of someone else’s negligence.
