Seeking compensation for a serious head injury
When a traumatic brain injury has occurred, there is a lot to consider. Most of these injury claims center on negligence, requiring you to prove that the defendant in your case was legally responsible for the injuries that occurred. To do this, you must show that the defendant had a legal responsibility to protect others, that he or she failed to act with reasonable care toward you, and that he or she caused your injuries due to actions or negligence. You also must prove that you’ve suffered significant injuries or losses due to the accident in question.
This can be a challenging process, as brain injuries are complex and it’s often difficult to connect an injury to a specific action on the part of a defendant. Thus, it’s important to collect as much evidence as possible, including medical records, witness testimony and anything else that might show that the party responsible was, in fact, at fault for your injury.
Moving ahead with an injury claim
When meeting with your attorney, you’ll likely need to discuss the circumstances of the accident that resulted in your traumatic brain injury. This will include where you were, how it occurred and what you were doing at the time, along with any medical care you received. You will likely need to seek ongoing medical care, and a doctor can contribute to your injury claim by making a clear diagnosis of your head injury.
Our lawyers know how to handle these complicated cases, including those in which the symptoms of your injuries might not have appeared until weeks or months after the initial accident. We fight for you, negotiating with insurers and holding at-fault parties accountable if their negligence caused your medical condition.
