Getting Compensation for a Brain Injury
Posted on Tuesday, October 17th, 2023 at 8:44 am
If you or a family member have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) you may be in shock and feeling overwhelmed by how much your life appears to be changing. Brain injuries can occur in car, truck, bicycle or even pedestrian accidents. Because your brain controls every thought and action of your body they have a wide range of potential consequences. Areas of impairment can include cognitive, emotional and physical. Some examples of problems caused by a TBI are:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty communicating
- Mood swings
- Impaired mobility
Dealing with the difficulties brought on by a traumatic brain injury is more than enough to handle. That’s why it makes sense to hire an experienced attorney to be in charge of getting the compensation you’re entitled to.
How are Damages Pursued?
A TBI brings many unexpected financial difficulties as well as physical ones. There’s medical expense, treatments and therapies which may be necessary well into the future. The ability of a person with a TBI to earn a living may be greatly diminished or even totally lost. In addition, you may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering due to the diminished quality of life that has resulted from the accident.
In the majority of cases, your attorney will be able to negotiate with an insurance company for damages. Most companies do not want to have to go through a lengthy and expensive court battle and will settle outside of court. If, however, the responsible part will not negotiate in good faith or offer a fair settlement it may then be necessary to go to court. Our attorneys are top-notch litigators and will fight for the compensation that is rightfully yours.
