If another person’s negligence caused your traumatic brain injury, contact The Yates Firm today. You might be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills and other expenses.

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs when a violent jolt or blow to the head damages the brain. A TBI can cause a range of debilitating symptoms that can prevent you from completing basic tasks. While many people recover entirely, some suffer permanent damage. The cost of ongoing medical care and assistance can create economic strain and lead to significant medical debt.

At The Yates Firm, we understand the long-term consequences of a TBI. Even if the injury is minor, you could spend weeks healing and face various challenges in your daily life. Our legal team knows how important it is to receive the money you’re owed so you can afford your expenses and aren’t forced to pay anything out of pocket. You deserve the maximum compensation from the at-fault party if they were entirely responsible for the accident.

CAUSES OF truamatic
brain injury

IN AN INJURY CLAIM...

car accident

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Accidents involving cars, trucks, and other vehicles can cause severe injuries to the occupants and non-motorists. TBI typically occurs in vehicle collisions when the driver’s head hits the steering wheel, or the extreme force placed on the body shakes the brain around the skull violently.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents are common and can lead to TBI. Various scenarios can result in a blow or jolt to the head. Whether an employee takes a tumble down the stairs, crashes their car while making a delivery, or gets struck by an unsecured shelf, the impact to the head can cause significant damage to the brain.

Slip/Trip and Falls

A slip and fall or trip and fall can happen anywhere. You can fall and hit your head on the ground after slipping on a wet floor or tripping over loose carpeting. If the fall is severe, a traumatic brain injury can occur.

Explosions

An explosion is violent. You can become airborne from the blast and fall to the ground, hitting your head in the process, or be slammed into something. Explosions can happen on construction sites and commercial properties containing combustible materials. An explosion can even occur following a car accident if a vehicle catches fire.

Being Struck by an Object

Medical Malpractice

Healthcare professionals can make dangerous errors that cause injuries to their patients. A traumatic brain injury doesn’t only happen when a person suffers a blow to the head.

Nursing Home Abuse

Older adults living in nursing homes are susceptible to abuse and neglect. A patient could fall and hit their head if their caretaker ignores their request for assistance to get to the bathroom and they try to go on their own. A TBI can also occur during instances of abuse by a doctor, nurse, or another staff member in a nursing facility.

Premises Liability

The dangerous conditions on someone’s property could lead to an accident. Whether residential or commercial, the owner must maintain the entire area to prevent guests from getting hurt.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I SUSTAINED A

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY IN MYRTLE BEACH?

01

REPORT THE INCIDENT 
Whether you were in a car accident or fell on someone else’s property, you should report what happened in writing. A document detailing the events leading up to the incident and other information can serve as helpful evidence in your case.

02

GO TO THE HOSPITAL
Seek medical treatment after leaving the accident scene. It doesn’t matter if you go to the emergency room or see your primary care physician. However, you shouldn’t wait long before your initial doctor visit. The doctor should evaluate you to determine whether you have a TBI and recommend a treatment plan for your recovery.

03

ATTEND ALL DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENTS
If the initial physician recommends follow-up care, such as rehabilitation, surgery, or diagnostic tests, do what they suggest. You need to continue with your treatment until you heal or your medical providers release you from their care.

04

KEEP EVERY DOCUMENT ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR CASE
You should keep a copy of every letter from the insurance company, medical record, billing statement, and other documents you receive. Evidence is vital to prove you suffered a traumatic brain injury during the accident and the expenses you incurred while treating it.

05

SEEK LEGAL REPRESENTATION
Hire a lawyer after the incident. The Yates Firm can handle your case while you focus on treatment. You shouldn’t attempt to pursue compensation yourself. Without the help of a lawyer, you will likely end up with much less compensation than you deserve or a denied claim.

06
