Consumer Products and Traumatic Brain Injury

Q: Can I sue after a traumatic brain injury due to a consumer product?

According to a study published in Brain Injury, a medical journal, over 4 million children in America sustained traumatic brain injuries, or “TBIs” from consumer products. 

The study found that “products like beds, flooring and sports items” were largely to blame for most of the injuries. In addition, it found that younger children were more often injured by home furnishing products (like beds and flooring) while older kids’ TBIs were often linked to sports activities. 

New York traumatic brain injury lawyers are personal injury attorneys that help victims obtain compensation from the parties responsible for causing their traumatic brain injury. 

In order to recover in a personal injury lawsuit, the victim has to prove that their serious injury was caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions or inactions of someone else who owed them a duty of care. If liability can be established, compensatory damages may include such things as current and future medical expenses, current and future lost wages, property damage, physical and psychological pain, and more depending on the particular case. 

While much more complex, a wrongful death lawsuit may be appropriate by the closest surviving relatives of a victim who dies as a result of their personal injury. A wrongful death attorney can explain who has standing to commence the suit and what type of damages they may recover, though it’s common for the victim’s final medical and funeral costs, plus other compensation for financial and other losses to the family member as a result of the victim’s death, to be recoverable.

Sometimes, toxic tort litigation arises in cases where personal injuries result from exposure to harmful consumer products like paint, pesticides and other items.
