Waukesha County personal injury attorney domestic violence

Individuals who are physically harmed by a romantic partner, family member, or household member may be left with serious injuries – both mental and physical. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may be caused by blows to the head, hitting one’s head on the ground, receiving a penetrating injury to the skull, and through other forms of physical trauma. If you sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of domestic violence, you should know that you have certain rights. You may be able to hold the alleged abusive person accountable for his or her actions criminally and civilly.

Criminal Charges Versus a Civil Claim

Although doing so is often much easier said than done, it is important to call the police after being physically attacked by an abusive person. Doing so enables you to create a record of the abuse and hold the alleged abuser criminally accountable for the harm he or she caused. Criminal charges, however, do not provide financial restitution for the injured victim. A traumatic brain injury can have a dramatic influence on a sufferer’s life. Your TBI may have caused you to suffer from painful and debilitating symptoms such as intense headaches, nausea, dizziness, memory problems, speech difficulties, cognitive issues, depression, sleep disturbances, and more. The injury may have necessitated expensive medical care. Symptoms may even prevent you from working and earning an income. This can create a heavy financial burden. A civil claim may allow you to recover financial compensation for the losses you experienced because of the traumatic brain injury.

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 10,500 alcohol-related traffic deaths across the country in 2018 and many more alcohol-related injury- or damage-only crashes. Accidents involving drunk drivers are often traumatic for the victim, which is why the victim has the right to pursue compensation from the offender.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

When you get into a car accident with another person, you have a right to pursue compensation for damages that you may have sustained. This is true in Wisconsin, especially if you were in a collision with an intoxicated driver. Wisconsin operates on a system of comparative negligence when it comes to motor vehicle crashes. This means all parties involved have the potential to be partially at fault for the accident. As long as you were not found to be more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you can pursue damages.
