Experienced Legal Advocacy In North Idaho To Help Victims Of Brain Injury Recover
Of all the ways your body can get seriously hurt, a traumatic brain injury is among the worst. The effects of brain trauma can profoundly impair your well-being and independence. And unlike a broken bone, your brain might never heal, even with the best available medical care. In the blink of an eye, a negligent driver or other party can cause you terrible, lifelong disabilities or take the life of someone you love.
If someone negligently gave you a TBI, you could be facing huge bills for health care, rehabilitation, home care and more. You could be unable to work anymore and deal with debilitating symptoms that limit your ability to care for yourself or your children. Attorney Jim Bendell of The Bendell Law Firm, PLLC, has more than 40 years of experience in personal injury law, starting as an insurance defense lawyer and representing plaintiffs for the past 25 years. He will fight to get you the compensation you deserve under Idaho law for a brain injury caused by someone else’s negligence.
Every Brain Injury Is Different
Traumatic brain injury can range from concussions and mild TBI to moderate and severe. A concussion on its own may heal relatively quickly, but some patients experience post-concussion syndrome, in which symptoms can last for months. More severe TBIs can cause long-term or even permanent effects, such as:
- Chronic headaches
- Sensitivity to light
- Memory problems
- Cognitive impairment
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of severe brain injury. Many accidents happen because someone is speeding, driving drunk or committing some other reckless behavior. Or if you suffered a TBI in a slip-and-fall accident, it could have happened on negligently maintained property, such as an icy parking lot. We will help you hold the responsible party liable for the cost of your injuries. Jim Bendell will work closely with you and be accessible whenever you have a question. He will build a strong case for compensation and put pressure on the insurance company to treat you fairly.
