TBI symptoms: How to define them and file for a brain damage lawsuit?
One of the most serious injuries that can occur in an accident is a traumatic brain damage. Such injury is usually caused by another person’s negligence. If you think that your brain injury or the extent of your brain injury was a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for a full monetary compensation. What’s more, if your injury appeared in an accident provoked by someone who was under the influence of alcohol or medication, that person will most probably be a subject to criminal penalties, involving imprisonment for DUI.
