Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur in various circumstances, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Assaults or acts of violence

Whether caused by negligence, recklessness, or intentional harm, such events can result in severe repercussions for victims and their loved ones.

From Mild To Severe TBI

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can range from mild to severe. In severe cases, the victim may be left in a coma. Insurance companies and jury members tend to easily understand the seriousness of these injuries if the case goes to trial.

In mild traumatic brain injury cases, it can be more challenging to make these parties understand the impact. Often, the victim does not even understand the impact. Family members may notice memory issues, personality changes, and other symptoms. These are not things that show up on an X-ray. As an attorney with extensive personal injury experience, King Smith knows how to work with experts to communicate the life-changing nature of these injuries so that insurance companies and jurors understand why the victim needs full compensation. In some cases, a spinal injury may accompany a brain injury, but not always.

Exploring Recoverable Damages in Brain Injury Claims

In a brain injury claim, victims may seek compensation for various damages, including:

  • Medical expenditures: Comprehensive coverage for current and prospective medical interventions, rehabilitative therapies, and ongoing treatment.
  • Lost wages: Compensation for income forfeited due to the injury may include potential future earning capabilities if relevant.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional suffering from the injury and its aftermath.
  • Loss of consortium: Monetary awards provided to a spouse or family member to address the depletion of companionship and assistance.
  • Punitive damages: Additional compensation awarded to punish the at-fault party for egregious conduct.

At Smith & Griffith, LLP, we understand the unique challenges brain injury victims face. Our experienced attorneys diligently assess each case to pursue maximum compensation for our clients.

Statute of Limitations for Brain Injury Claims in South Carolina

In South Carolina, brain injury claims generally must be filed within three years from the date of the injury, as dictated by the statute of limitations. However, certain factors may affect the timeline, so it's crucial to consult with a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights.

Prompt action is essential in building a solid case and preserving crucial evidence. Delaying legal proceedings could jeopardize your ability to recover the compensation you deserve.
