Traumatic Brain Injury Prognosis

Our Seattle Injury Attorney Understands the Challenges You Face

Brain tomography
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change your life in the blink of an eye. It can result in long-term impairments that affect your ability to work and to perform daily tasks. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 1.7 million TBIs occur each year in the United States, either as an isolated injury or along with other injuries, and TBIs contribute to about 30 percent of all injury-related deaths in the U.S. At the Law Offices of Michael Withey, we stand up for TBI victims and their families, working hard to protect their legal rights and to obtain the justice they deserve.

Traumatic Brain Injury Prognosis

For TBI victims, the recovery process can be slow and difficult. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, about half of all patients with severe TBIs require surgery to remove or repair hematomas or contusions. Moreover, depending on the severity and location of the injury, as well as the patient’s age and overall health, TBIs can result in permanent cognitive, sensory, communication, mental health, and/or behavioral disabilities, which typically require ongoing treatment and care. The mounting costs may seem overwhelming, but if negligence led to your traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

We Fight for TBI Victims and Their Families

Seattle injury attorney Michael Withey is dedicated to getting TBI victims and their families the compensation they need and deserve. In one case involving a victim who died of massive brain injuries during the 2001 Mardi Gras riots in Pioneer Square, our firm obtained a significant settlement for the victim’s family through mediation with the City of Seattle. The settlement included not only financial compensation for the victim’s parents, but also the creation of a scholarship fund, the erection of a memorial plaque, a meeting with the police chief and an invitation to attend public safety meetings. Mr. Withey recently settled a case involving a young woman who suffered a mild traumatic brain injury in an automobile accident for over $1 million.
