No matter what any of us do for a living, how much money we make, or where we live, there is one thing we all have in common: None of us can function if without the use of our brains. The human brain is amazing. In addition to cognitive functions, like walking and talking, the brain regulates thousands of other bodily functions we don’t even think about, like breathing and blood circulation.
Traumatic brain injuries are among the most severe and tragic personal challenges anyone can ever experience. Overnight, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can turn the life of both the injury victim and their family into a nightmare. Perhaps the worst part is that most traumatic brain injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence. If you suffered a TBI in Marion, you may want a traumatic brain injury lawyer to defend your rights.

Recoverable Damages in a TBI Personal Injury Case
According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the cost of treating a TBI might include:
- Rehabilitation and therapy to learn adapted self-care skills
- Nutritional support
- Mobility and communication therapy
- Pain treatment
- Psychological counseling
With family support, lifestyle changes, and patient education, patients might experience significant improvement over time. However, this process very often costs a lot of money.
If you can prove that another party was liable for the accident that injured you, you might be able to hold them financially responsible for the cost of your TBI treatment, its related expenses, and its forced lifestyle changes.
In addition to seeking reimbursement for medical expenses, accident victims may be able to recover the following damages in a traumatic brain injury case:
- Current and future lost wages
- Loss of employment
- Physical pain and suffering
- Physical scars or disfigurement
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Physical and/or intellectual disability
- Loss of consortium

Recoverable Damages in Wrongful Death Cases in Ohio
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that some 166 people die every day in the U.S. due to TBI-related injuries. If your loved one’s TBI-related death was caused by someone else’s negligence, a different set of damages might be available to you through a wrongful death lawsuit. These include:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Expenses related to settling the deceased’s estate
- Future loss of financial support
- Loss of society and companionship
- Whatever damages your loved one never had a chance to seek compensation for on their own behalf
When the Fitch Law Firm LLC represents you, we can help you create a complete picture of the impact the accident has had on you and your family. This can tell you how much money you may be entitled to from the liable party or parties.
TBI Causes and Symptoms
After a head injury, it is important to stay vigilant against TBI symptoms. These symptoms, according to the CDC, may include:
- An inability to think clearly
- Visual changes
- Unusual sleepiness
- Cognitive difficulty
- Light or noise sensitivity
- Physical instability
Many TBI symptoms might persist for days or weeks. Others might linger for months or persist throughout a person’s life. In some cases, the symptoms of a TBI might not become clear until the injured party attempts to engage in routine activities.
Prompt medical intervention may avoid worsening symptoms. It can also result in a clearer, more complete medical record that you can use as proof of your need for monetary compensation.
Your Right to Compensation Has a Time Limit
There are several reasons why it is best to start a lawsuit as soon as possible after a traumatic brain injury. These reasons include the following:
- According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, the time you generally have to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party is limited to two years from the date of the accident, generally speaking.
- For wrongful death lawsuits, you generally have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file, per Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
- Evidence may disappear, become unavailable, or lose value over time. If you start your case soon after the accident, there may be more evidence available to prove your need for damages, resulting in a stronger case.
With early notice of your intent to seek compensation, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) lawyer from the Fitch Law Firm LLC can ensure that your lawsuit is filed in time to comply with the legal deadlines that apply to your case.
