Do I Need a Lawyer?

Although a lawyer cannot undo the harm you have suffered, they can obtain compensation from the at-fault party that will allow you to get the care and treatment you need for a serious brain injury, giving you and your family a sense of security as you move forward in life. Navigating the claims process and legal system, however, can be confusing and difficult to do while working on your recovery. An experienced brain injury lawyer will explain your options, investigate the incident, and work to build a strong claim that fits your needs. 

Effects of Brain Injuries

Overtime, increased inflammation of the brain and decreased cell regeneration stemming from brain injuries can lead to progressive deterioration of the brain. Consequently, causing victims to suffer more stark long term repercussions, such as neurological deficits and being more susceptible to post-traumatic dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s. Intervention during the chronic stages of a brain injury can assist in slowing deterioration. However, the Centers for Disease Control states that effects can include the permanency of many symptoms. For example, a victim’s new normal could include changes to: 

  • Memory and reasoning
  • Communication and understanding
  • Taste, smell, and touch 
  • Emotional stability 
  • Balance and coordination

Understanding the long term effects of a brain injury is vital when pursuing a legal claim. The amount of damages obtained must fully compensate for every harm and loss suffered, both currently and in the future. 

Common Damages in Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

Our legal team will pursue every type of compensation that is available to you, including damages that cover:

  • Past and future medical expenses (including rehabilitation costs)
  • Lost wages and loss of earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages (in exceptional cases)
  • Wrongful death damages (if your loved one dies from his or her brain injury)

The amount of compensation that your case is worth will depend on many different unique factors. Those often include the nature and extent of the brain injury, as well as available insurance coverage.
