Bellingham Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers
Every year, approximately two million people sustain a head injury. A brain injury, head trauma or concussion is any trauma to the head that causes injury to the scalp, skull or brain. Common causes of head injury include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, accidents in the home and birth injuries. Although most head injuries are minor, some result in prolonged or non-reversible brain damage. These serious head injuries are called a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Infants and small children are especially vulnerable to traumatic brain injuries as their skulls are softer than an adult’s in order to allow their brains to grow appropriately. If you lost your infant to a brain injury or your child has been permanently debilitated by a brain injury you deserve answers and compensation for your loss and medical expenses.

How do I know whether I should pursue a traumatic brain injury claim?
We believe your well being and the well being of your family and loved ones is more important than money or legal action. However, if you or a loved one is suffering from a traumatic brain injury, you should seek the opinion of a qualified head injury attorney to determine whether or not a personal injury claim should be brought.
Do I really need to hire an attorney or should I handle my own head injury claim?
To determine whether or not you have a viable head injury claim it is often necessary to hire an outside and independent medical expert to evaluate your case. Tario & Associates, P.S. has vast experience working with various independent and outside medical experts who may be retained in the investigation and evaluation of your claim. It is common for a lawyer to obtain a settlement five to twenty times the amount a person would receive by fighting on their own.
How much do I have to pay to pursue a claim?
There are no upfront costs or fees paid by our clients to pursue a traumatic brain injury claim as we provide representation on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. While you will not incur any attorney fees if you do not win your case, Washington State law requires clients to reimburse the law firm for out-of-pocket expenses. Our firm advances out-of-pocket costs for our malpractice clients and does not require our clients to pay any of these costs up front. When cases are concluded with a monetary recovery, our firm is repaid out of the recovery for the out-of-pocket costs we have advanced.
If you or a loved one has a traumatic brain injury, you have enough to worry about. Let us give you peace of mind. Contact the experienced Bellingham head injury lawyers at Tario & Associates, P.S. today.
