The Milwaukee traumatic brain injury lawyers at Cannon & Dunphy S.C. can help fight for the money you and your family need to cover medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and ongoing acute care.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that TBI is one of the major causes of death and disability in the USA, contributing to about 30 percent of all injury deaths. There are over 150 deaths from TBI each day, and over 282,000 hospitalizations per year.
The consequences of a traumatic brain injury may last a few days – or a lifetime. While medical science has made great strides in treating brain injuries, the degree to which a victim recovers varies widely, from patient to patient. A moderate or severe TBI often leads to permanent damage, including:
Many cases of TBI are the result of an act of negligence, such as car accidents, slip or trip and fall, assaults, or work-related injuries. When another party contributed to or caused the accident through an act of negligence (or failure to act), a personal injury lawsuit should be filed against the liable parties.
The goal of the lawsuit is to recover compensatory damages at a level that reflects the long-term consequences suffered by the victim. The damages sought in a lawsuit or claim can include:
The long-term consequences of a traumatic brain injury include expensive medical care and the costs associated with the inability to work and earn a living. When another party is responsible for what occurred, that party must be held accountable. Insurance may or may not pay an adequate sum to cover the necessary costs – a lawsuit filed in civil court provides the opportunity to seek fair and full compensation. To file a personal injury lawsuit requires the ability to craft and present a case that is fully supported by evidence, expert medical witnesses, and financial experts to evaluate the long-term financial losses suffered by the victim.
