How Traumatic Brain Injuries Occur

More than 50 percent of traumatic brain injuries in the United States occur in motor vehicle accidents. This type of injury can happen when a force or object injures the skull. Very often in car accidents the skull comes into contact with the windshield or the steering wheel. The force of a hard object against the head or face can cause the brain to smash against the internal skull. This can cause:

  • Bruising of the brain, also known as a contusion
  • Bleeding on the brain, also known as a brain hemorrhage

Because a traumatic brain injury does not always involve an open wound, the injury may go undetected at first. If your head came into contact with any object during the vehicle accident, seek medical attention immediately. More than one motor vehicle accident lawyer in Silver Spring MD has likely had clients with traumatic brain injuries who did not realize it immediately.

An open wound to the head is also common in serious vehicle accidents when the victim is thrown from the car or the roof is crushed into their head. Open head wounds generally cause substantial blood loss which makes the injury apparent almost immediately. After you have undergone medical attention directly following the accident, it is advisable to contact a motor vehicle accident lawyer Silver Spring MD is proud to have in the community. Cohen & Cohen has represented and protected the rights of clients in the Maryland area for more than 20 years.

Crashworthiness of the Accident Vehicle

On the surface, it may appear that the only blame for a victim’s traumatic brain injury is the at fault driver. However, as an experienced Silver Spring MD motor vehicle accident lawyer might tell you, the victim’s vehicle may come into question as well.

An automobile’s ability to protect the driver and passengers during an impact is referred to as its crashworthiness. After investigating your accident, a motor vehicle accident lawyer Silver Spring MD victims turn to for justice may determine that your vehicle was not sufficiently crashworthy. If it failed to adequately protect you and resulted in you experiencing a traumatic brain injury, the vehicle manufacturer may be vulnerable to legal action on your part. After discussing your case with a qualified motor vehicle accident lawyer Silver Spring MD clients trust, your legal options can become clear.

Vehicle manufacturers are responsible for designing and building vehicles that can withstand a reasonably foreseeable accident. Crashworthiness has to be taken into consideration by the manufacturer to eliminate or minimize the likelihood and seriousness of injuries that can be suffered by the driver and passengers.

Automotive defects have been blamed for a number of traumatic brain injuries. They can also cause the actual accident. Examples of what might be considered a critical pre-existing automotive defect include these faulty parts:

  • Accelerator pedals that stick and cause sudden and unstoppable acceleration
  • Seatbelts that unfasten or do not prevent forward movement during an impact
  • Airbags that do not deploy properly and either do not protect the person or it injures them
  • Tires that blow out or fall apart
  • Window glazing
  • Door latches that do not securely keep the door closed
  • Roofs that crush occupants or cause the vehicle to roll over
  • Windshield or window glass that is laminated and not tempered which can cause it to shatter

Compensatory Damages

When injured in an accident that you are not responsible for causing, you may be entitled to recover your damages from the at fault party or parties. Damages from an accident can be extensive, particularly when they include an injury as serious as a traumatic brain injury. A top motor vehicle accident lawyer Silver Spring MD offers may be able to help you recover any of the following costs that are applicable to the accident:

  • Emergency medical costs including ambulance transportation
  • Immediate and future surgery costs
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Damage to your personal property inside the vehicle
  • Lost wages from the time of the accident into the future if you are unable to work due to your injury
  • Vocational rehabilitation if you are unable to return to your job because of your injury
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Counseling
  • Specialized medical equipment for the home
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages (in rare cases, this may be awarded to victims of accidents caused by the reckless behavior of a negligent driver or third party)

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
