How does a brain injury affect the victim?
Victims of a brain injury will likely require medical and personal care for the rest of their lives. Often, they need costly, specialized support services to carry out their daily activities.
The victim generally loses some degree of his or her cognitive abilities, physical abilities, or both. Victims often experience complications related to emotional and mental capacity. This may leave the victim unable hold a job or maintain personal relationships.
The most striking effect of brain injuries is that they do not heal. Today’s medical technology, despite its many advances, has no treatment for most of these injuries.
Our attorneys can help you file a claim for these losses.
Do I have a legal claim for my brain injury?
If you or a loved one sustained a brain injury due to the negligence of an individual or business, you very likely have a valid legal claim. This means that, with our help, you can pursue fair financial compensation for your injuries.
Filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit for your brain injury is an important step in the recovery process. A financial settlement will help you pay for the costly medical care a brain injury requires. Many patients will require treatment and care for the rest of their lives, with medical bills potentially totally millions of dollars. If your injury prevents you from working, you will have even less hope of covering these exorbitant costs.
Although you may have the legal right to file a claim for any type of injury that occurred because of someone’s negligence, these are some of the most common causes we see in our practice:
- Slip and fall accidents, including premises liability cases where the property owner did not provide a safe environment for visitors;
- Medical malpractice cases, including failure to treat and errors in diagnosis or treatment;
- Motor vehicle or boating accidents, if someone’s negligence caused the accident; and
- Assault or domestic violence, including weapons crimes, gunshot accidents, family abuse, or elder abuse.
Our lawyers can review the relevant facts of your case and advise you on your legal options.
How can a brain injury lawyer help me with my case?
Mounting household and medical bills can cause stress, especially if the victim was a major financial contributor to the household. Instead of worrying about these issues, you should focus on your health and recovery.
A financial settlement will go a long way toward quelling your concerns. With the knowledge that your settlement will cover medical costs and household bills, you can get back to the process of healing. That is why we work so hard to win you fair financial compensation for your injury.
Filing a claim or lawsuit for a brain injury requires a profound understanding to complex legal concepts. It also requires access to resources such as medical experts who can provide substantiation for the claim. We have experience in this area of law and can put our skills to work for you.
The negligent party’s insurance company may mount a vigorous objection to your claim, in an attempt to minimize their payout. We can engage in complex negotiations to arrive at a settlement agreement. If necessary, we will file a lawsuit to obtain the compensation you deserve.
What is the value of my traumatic brain injury claim?
Brain injury claims can often reach millions of dollars, depending on the nature of the injury and the prognosis for improvement. To determine the value of your case, we will begin by gathering the following information:
- All medical bills and care costs to date;
- An estimation of your future medical bills and care costs;
- Your lost wages to date;
- Your lost potential earnings;
- Pain and suffering; and
- Lost enjoyment of life.
We will prove your claim with copies of medical bills and sworn statements from doctors and medical experts that support your diagnosis and potential for recovery. If an accident left you with a long-term or permanent disability, we can calculate the legal value of your injuries based on historic data and case law.
How can a lawyer prove negligence in a traumatic brain injury?
To hold the responsible party liable for your damages, we must prove they acted with negligence. To do this, we will demonstrate four key points.
Duty of Care
The individual who was at fault for your injury owed you a duty of care. For example, motorists owe a duty of care to the public to drive safely and follow traffic laws when on the road.
Breach of Duty
If we can show the at-fault party failed to uphold—or breached—their duty of care, we can hold them liable in your case. For example, if a driver violated the law by speeding or driving aggressively, they breached their duty.
We will offer proof that this breach of duty directly led to the accident that caused your injuries.
We can prove your actual damages with medical bills, lost wage statements, and related verification of your costs.
To prove your claim, we will collect witness statements, photos of the accident scene, safety records, and any other documentation that supports your case. We will also obtain testimony from subject matter experts to support specific aspects of your claim.
