Traumatic Brain Injury

Hawaii Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

Millions Recovered for Brain Injury Victims

Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, can be caused in one of two primary ways:

  • From trauma involving excessive force applied to the head that damages tissues of the brain. Things that can cause traumatic brain injuries include car accidents, sports accidents, construction accidents, and violence.
  • From oxygen deprivation, including hypoxia and anoxia, which deprives the brain of oxygenated blood, resulting in brain cell death. Choking, electrocution, drowning, delayed labor and delivery (birth injuries), and surgical or anesthesia errors (medical malpractice) are a few examples of things that can lead to oxygen deprivation brain damage.

The Consequences of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are wildly unpredictable and may leave victims with short-term memory loss, compromised cognitive function, and an inability to manage the demands of daily living.

In the most severe cases, brain injury victims require expensive full-time attendant care. This level of impairment may leave the individual without gainful employment and threaten their financial security. When the traumatic brain injury is caused by another's negligence or wrongful conduct, the victim may be entitled to compensation.

Our Hawaii brain injury lawyers at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP can explain your options if you or a family member suffered a TBI. We have the experience to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Recoverable damages in brain injury cases include:

  • Hospital and medical bills
  • Medical testing and rehabilitation / cognitive therapy
  • Future medical expenses, including care and medications
  • Lost income and future wages
  • Pain and suffering

While your case may be worth a great deal in compensation, without effective representation you may have difficulty securing the full value of your case. In the face of medical bills, lost wages, and the emotional suffering caused to you and your family, you have every reason to do all you can to win the largest recovery possible.
