Wife sues grocery store after husband sustains brain injury

Friday September 13, 2013

With just a small force, a hit on the head can sometimes result in a brain injury. Mostly sustained by vehicular accident victims, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) is often associated with various disabilities ranging from coma to paralysis. Many TBI victims in New Haven, Connecticut, suffer tremendously if they are injured in that way.

Recently, a woman filed a lawsuit against a popular grocery store because of the injuries that her husband allegedly sustained in one of its stores. According to the lawsuit, the woman’s husband was in the store and asked the employees if he could use the restroom. He went to the restroom, which was up a set of stairs. Upon exiting from the restroom, the husband fell on the stairs and sustained serious injuries.

He suffered disabilities including a TBI, mental anguish and emotional distress. According to the lawsuit, the victim has gone through pain and suffering, lost his enjoyment in life and incurred medical expenses including costs for recovery. Moreover, he became incapacitated and now lives in a nursing home permanently. As a result of what happened to her husband, the wife feels that she has also suffered damages, including loss of companionship, aid, care and the support of her husband.

Although people can be affected by a TBI in various ways, readers in Connecticut should always remember that all TBI victims suffer with pain and have troubles. The person is left debilitated and requires long-term care. The accident victim and his or her family usually suffer emotional pain and often experience financial challenges as well.

To survive such an experience, residents of New Haven who have personal injury concerns, may wish to sue the negligent party. With this type of lawsuit, the person might receive compensation for the suffering that he or she has had to endure. However, residents should be cautious in terms of seeking medical care and accepting settlements. It might be a wise decision for the person to first consult with an attorney.
