Help You Can Count On After A Traumatic Brain Injury
Of all the injuries that you can sustain in an accident, a traumatic brain injury is one of the most serious. And if your injuries were due to the actions of someone else, it's incredibly frustrating to know that you face such a difficult physical and financial recovery because of another. Our lawyers have a long history of standing up for those who are injured and getting them what they deserve. If you've been hurt by someone else and are left struggling with a brain injury, we can fight to make them pay so you can receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
What Is A Brain Injury?
A brain injury, as its name suggests, is any type of injury that occurs to the brain. It is normally caused by trauma or impacts, but could be caused by loss of oxygen or other similar issues as well.
Brain injuries are among the most life-changing that you can experience, and can lead to issues like:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Loss of mental function
- Emotional and personality changes
- Severe, persistent or frequent headaches
- Vision and hearing loss or changes
These kinds of injuries can often be permanent, and can leave the injured unable to continue working or living their life as they once did. As such, a brain injury could have a huge influence on your financial wellbeing and on the lives of those close to an injured person.
If your brain injury was caused by someone else, these aren't problems that you should have to shoulder on your own. Getting compensation for your injuries is important. Our lawyers fight for the injured, not the powerful, and we always make sure to get our clients the most from their case, no matter how hard we have to work to do so.
Do You Have The Right To Compensation?
Seeking restitution in a brain injury case is something that you can do if you are able to prove that your accident was the result of another's negligence or recklessness. This can mean a lot of different things depending upon the type of accident that occurred.
Some examples of negligent or reckless behavior includes the following:
- Texting while driving
- Other forms of distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to follow signs and signals
- Failure to yield right of way
- Failure to follow all applicable traffic laws
- Failure to maintain safe working environments for employees
- Failure to maintain safe public areas if a business owner
- Using defective products
- Knowing of safety issues and failing to place warnings or to correct the issue
No two cases are identical, but in general if a person's actions would be seen to be negligent or reckless by any reasonable person, you likely have the grounds to seek financial compensation for your injuries. Our lawyers can review your case and will fight to get you what you deserve. A brain injury can change your life forever. We make sure that those responsible pay for their actions.
How Much Is Your Case Worth?
There is no way to know what a brain injury case is worth until it is concluded and you have your settlement money. However, a fair settlement amount is designed to get you back to the financial place you would have been had the accident never occurred.
A fair settlement will include compensation for a number of things, including:
- Medical bills
- Future potential medical bills
- Long term care costs
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- The loss of earning potential you may experience
- Pain and suffering
- Lost financial factors including pensions, insurance, and so on
- Medications and medical supplies
- And more
A brain injury can cost far more than many realize, and the long-term nature of the injury's recovery means that costs can pile up quickly and continue to do so. And if you're unable to work as you once did, it can have an even more profound impact on your financial stability. Because of this, we work with financial experts and doctors to make clear estimates as to the true cost of your injuries, then fight to get that sum for you.
Insurance companies and lawyers for the other side will try to use tactics to bully you around and prevent them from having to pay you anything. These tactics can include things like:
- Refusal to pay
- Ignoring your attempts to contact them
- Forcing you through unnecessary legal red tape
- Offering settlements that are far lower than you really deserve
- And more
We don't let that happen. Our reputation alone is enough to get you the respect of the other side and show them that you are serious about getting what you're owed. Usually, just having us on your side is enough to encourage them towards a settlement agreement. But if we can't reach one, our lawyers have no problem taking your case all the way to court to fight for your money there.
We know how difficult this time can be for you and your loved ones, and we fight to make sure that you don't feel powerless as you try to recover. We stand up to the powerful and get you exactly what you're owed.
