Common Types of Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury can occur when there is a blow to the head. It can be caused by auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, etc. We handle cases for these types of accidents that were caused by negligence.
Head injuries are also commonly seen in athletes, especially in contact sports.
A brain injury can be a concussion, contusion, or more severe injuries such as brain bleeds.
Common symptoms of a brain injury include nausea, dizziness, slurred speech, and sensitivity to light.
Even a minor concussion can take a considerable amount of time to recover from. When you have a brain injury as a result of an accident caused by a negligent party, we want to help you receive justice. Please keep reading to learn more about how we can help you get the justice you deserve.
Compensable Damages for Brain Injuries
There are two types of damages that you can receive compensation for when you are pursuing a claim. The first type of damage is your economic damages. These are all the ways in which you have been financially affected by your injury. Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages, and lost benefits.
The second type of damages are your non-economic damages. Non-economic damages are intended to compensate you for all of the ways in which your life has been impacted by this accident. You can receive compensation for your loss of consortium, decreased life quality, and pain and suffering.
Naming a Liable Party
While you may have a good idea about who caused your accident, there is no sure way to know who the liable party is without an investigation.
For instance, if you were riding your bike when a vehicle struck you, causing your brain injuries, you may automatically assume that the driver was the only liable party in your accident. However, an investigation may discover that someone else on the road caused the vehicle that hit you to swerve into the bike lane.
We are very thorough in our investigations to properly name your liable party so we can pursue justice.
Negotiating with the Insurance Company
Your compensation award will come from the liable party’s insurance company. Please do not fall for their helpful façade. They do not want to help you get the compensation that you are entitled to. They want to put you out the door with the lowest settlement award possible.
Let your lawyer handle negotiations with them to ensure your justice is as full and fair as possible.
