How can negligence cause a brain injury?
A traumatic brain injury can result after an accident. If that accident happened due to negligence, we can collect evidence to prove the at-fault party’s liability and file a claim to collect compensation for you.
Some of the most common causes of brain injuries include:
- Falls, including slip, trips, and falls from a height;
- Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycleand pedestrian accidents;
- Boating accidents;
- Gunshot wounds;
- Assaultor abuse;
- Medical malpractice;
- Defective product accidents; and
- Sports accidents, including diving and swimming pool injuries.
What is the claims process like to recover compensation?
While all brain injury claims rely on proving negligence to win a payout, the way to go about this varies depending on how your injuries occurred. This is one reason you need our knowledgeable attorneys on your side.
If your injury occurred due to a car accident, the claims process is different than if medical malpractice or a product defect caused it. The evidence required in a premises liability claim—the type we file if you slip and fall—is not the same as the evidence needed to recover compensation from a negligent physician.
No matter how your brain injury occurred, if another person acted carelessly and caused it, we can likely pursue compensation in your case. We know how to navigate the insurance claims process and get our clients the maximum payout available based on the facts of their claim. We can usually get the compensation you deserve by filing a third-party liability insurance claim with the at-fault party’s auto, homeowner’s, or business insurer.
When you let us manage the claims process for you, there is little to worry about aside from your physical recovery. We identify the at-fault party, tirelessly collect evidence to support your claim, and aggressively fight for the money you need and deserve. For most claims, we are able to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company without having to file a civil suit in court.
How much is my brain injury claim worth?
It is impossible to know exactly how much we can recover until we reach a settlement with the insurance company or the court hands down their decision. But we do use our knowledge, experience, and resources to estimate the potential of your case and help you understand what to expect before we request a settlement from the at-fault party’s insurer.
There are a number of factors that affect the amount of compensation you can receive. If you suffered a relatively minor brain injury that causes you to miss work but does not require a hospital stay, for example, your claim will have a much smaller value than one for a severe injury. If you suffered a severe brain injury and are now facing long-term medical treatment, in-home care, and months or years of lost wages, your claim value will be much higher.
We collect bills, receipts, and other documentation to show the cost of your treatment and therapy. We also consult expert witnesses to help us understand your ongoing care needs and the expenses associated with your future treatment. With all the information about your current and future financial losses, we can put a value on your pain and suffering and the other emotional impacts of your injuries.
By collecting all this evidence and looking at your losses as a whole, we can determine how much your claim is worth. Then, we can include this amount in our demand letter or use it to negotiate a fair settlement with the liable party or their insurance company.
This is the only way to ensure you get the money you need to cover your losses. If you try to handle your claim on your own without understanding the full costs you will face, you may leave a lot of money on the table. This could leave you paying for future care out of your own pocket.
How can a brain injury lawyer help?
There is no reason you need to try to handle your claim on your own. We have the resources, skills, and experience to manage your case while you focus on your physical, cognitive, and emotional recovery. In almost all situations, personal injury victims who enlist the help of a knowledgeable lawyer take home more money than those who try to take on the case on their own.
These claims are complex and require specific knowledge and skills to win. We know how to uncover and collect all available evidence to support your claim. We have a network of expert witnesses to estimate the costs associated with your ongoing or future care needs. We know how to take this evidence to the insurance company and use it to prove the full value of your case. We can usually negotiate a fair settlement for our clients without having to take the case to court.
