OUR BRAIN INJURY LAW FIRM PROVIDES CAREFUL REPRESENTATION FOR PEOPLE WITH TBI
When another party’s negligence results in a brain injury, a Tacoma TBI lawyer can help victims get compensation. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are some of the most serious types of injury. They leave victims with profound concerns, ranging from loss of function to serious behavior and personality changes. Both victims and their loved ones can feel like returning to normal life is nearly impossible. On top of this, many traumatic brain injury victims suffer serious financial losses, both from mounting medical bills and from their inability to work after their accident.
A brain injury lawyer from Strong Law can help families find hope again as they seek to rebuild their lives after a traumatic brain injury. Our goal is to help you get back to normal without fear of financial repercussions. If you or someone you love has suffered from a traumatic brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, our brain injury law firm in Tacoma is here to ensure that you are properly compensated.
Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury occurs when a serious head injury damages the brain. This can lead to significant personality changes, not to mention problems with handling the demands of daily life. Cognitive and physical disabilities are common as well. According to the CDC, 2.5 million people in the United States will suffer from traumatic brain injuries every year, and around 288,000 of those will require hospitalization. The causes of these injuries vary. Car accidents are a common reason for a TBI. Sometimes athletes, particularly in high-impact sports, will suffer brain injuries on the field or court. Slip-and-fall accidents where someone hits their head can cause these injuries, as can workplace accidents. Negligence is often present in these cases, and when it is, injured parties and their families can file a TBI lawsuit to seek compensation for the injuries and the resulting financial strain.
Our Tacoma Brain Injury Lawyers Explain the Process of Filing a Legal Claim after a TBI
If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury, the first thing to do is to get the right medical care. This not only ensures your physical protection, but it also creates documentation of the extent of your injuries. After getting medical help, reach out to a Tacoma brain injury lawyer. At Strong Law, we will take the time to listen to your account of the accident to help you determine if someone is at fault in the accident. If so, we will begin building your case, performing investigations, and working with insurance providers to make sure you are adequately compensated. We will carefully calculate the total amount of compensation you deserve, then fight to ensure you receive it. If necessary, we will even go to trial to make certain you are adequately protected. We handle all of these details, so you can focus on healing after your accident. Throughout the process, we will keep you informed about the details, so you know what to expect in the days ahead. Our goal is to fight for the best possible outcome, so you do not have to worry about the financial aftermath of your accident in the days ahead.

COMMON QUESTIONS CLIENTS ASK OUR TACOMA TBI LAWYERS
Suffering from a traumatic brain injury can leave you with many questions. Here are some common questions we have heard at Strong Law.
What does it cost to hire a traumatic brain injury lawyer?
Tacoma TBI lawyers are personal injury attorneys, and typically they do not charge until you are awarded damages. The lawyer’s fees will come from your damages. You have enough to worry about financially in the aftermath of your accident, and paying your TBI attorney shouldn’t be added to that list.
How much compensation is available after a traumatic brain injury?
Financial recovery will depend on many factors, including the cost of your medical bills, the impact of your injury on your quality of life, and how much of a disability you have suffered as a result of your TBI. Pain and suffering and punitive damages can also factor into the overall value of your claim. Your TBI attorney will walk you through the potential value of your claim, so you can move forward with the right information.
Why should I seek compensation after a traumatic brain injury?
Traumatic brain injuries don’t always cause visible disabilities, but they can greatly impact an individual’s quality of life. Many people suffer serious personality changes after a TBI. Others lose the ability to function normally and may not be able to continue working. These hidden disabilities hurt families financially, which is why seeking compensation is so vital.
Should I settle my brain injury case?
A settlement is always a possibility in a brain injury claim, but you should never move forward with a settlement without discussing your case with a Tacoma brain injury lawyer. Many cases can be fairly settled outside of court, but you need an attorney to make certain you consider all financial impacts of the injury.
After a traumatic brain injury, families and victims are left to pick up the pieces. Compensation can help make normal life possible again, and there are many types of compensation available in these cases. Some common types of compensation available to TBI victims include:
- Lost income, both current and future potential income
- Current and future medical expenses
- Overall pain and suffering, including emotional trauma
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of ability to work
- Loss of companionship due to serious personality changes.

”When I first contacted Strong Law all I wanted was to protect my credit and make sure my medical bills were paid from my accident. They went the extra mile for me and were absolutely knowledgeable, taking every step to make sure that insurance covered what they were supposed to. They settled and I was granted everything I was originally hoping for along with getting me a cash settlement that will help me buy my first house! Thank you Strong Law for going the extra mile for me!!!” – Persephone Wakefield (Google Review)

“Unbelievable work! I had a claim involving my own insurance company. I tried to negotiate with them, and they completely denied my claim – two times. I then hired Strong Law, and the change was instant. The insurance company immediately began negotiating, and Jed was able to secure an unbelievably good settlement. I will never again attempt to take-on an insurance company without Strong Law in my corner. Thank you!”
– Jonathon S.
“Absolutely outstanding! I was involved in a motorcycle accident and Jed led the way! Definitely top notch! When it matters, call strong law!”
– Edwin S.
“While working a wrongful death case of my husband’s, throughout the legal process, Jed pursued every possible resource and angle to ensure that we would receive policy limits despite intense resistance from the representatives of the insurance companies. We are deeply grateful to him for the funds we received and the lasting friendship that grew out of the entire ordeal.”
