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. Although most head injuries are minor, some result in prolonged or non-reversible brain damage. These serious head injuries are called traumatic brain injury. Common causes of head injury include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, accidents in the home and birth injuries.
Infants and small children are especially vulnerable to head injuries as their skulls are softer than an adult’s to allow their brains to grow appropriately. If you have 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.
Since 1979, the head injury lawyers at Tario & Associates, P.S. law firm have helped thousands of citizens in Bellingham and throughout Whatcom County and Skagit County fight for and win their cases. Our Bellingham brain injury attorneys are experienced in handling traumatic brain injury cases. We have connections with medical and accident experts who can provide needed information to help prove your case.
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.
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.
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 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.
