Representation for a TBI Case

TBI stands for traumatic brain injury, and these cases can end up costing an extensive amount of money due to the need for expert witnesses, the cost of reimbursement for medical bills, and litigation expenses related to the case.

TBI makes it difficult for the individual to work and the medical bills begin to add up quickly and if the case is presented to a personal injury attorney they might look at the lost wages and the level of medical bills and try to reach a settlement before a trial even begins.

A brain injury attorney, however, will conduct a direct interview with the individual and their family members, look at the diagnosis from the doctor, and address any and all issues the survivor is having pertaining to the traumatic injury.

What may be Included in a TBI Case?

There are several factors in a TBI case that gain the attorney’s focus. Some of these factors include the loss of earning capacity faced by the survivor of the injury, the life care costs that are associated with the injury, and the pain and suffering due to the injury.

When finding the right attorney to represent you or a family member in a TBI case, you will want to look for a combination of experience, expertise, and results. The attorney should have already been through several similar cases in which positive results were received by past clients. TBI cases can be extremely technical and complicated and require proper investigation, medical expertise with the right professionals, and the attention of the insurance company in order to reach maximum benefits for the client.

Questions to Ask the Potential Attorney

If you feel you have found an attorney and have decided to set up a consultation, the following is a list of questions you should start with when determining if they would be the best attorney for your particular case:

  • How many similar cases have you been involved with over the last few years?
  • What percentage of this practice is devoted to this type of case?
  • What have been your past results with TBI cases?
  • Are you a participant in the state’s Brain Injury Association?
  • Do you have the financial resources to advance and prosecute this case?

Typically, in a TBI case, the attorney is paid a fee based on a percentage of the sum of money that will be recovered. The attorney will not receive the fee until the case is over and closed. This provides the families with the ability to find a good lawyer at a cost they can afford rather than having to downgrade the professional experience and support of another attorney that may not be as knowledgeable with cases such as these.

The attorneys will be more than willing to answer any and all questions you may have concerning your case. Suffering a brain injury will impact the entire course of your life, and the results from the case can seriously impact you and provide a significant impact on your future and ongoing security. For these reasons, it is crucial that you find the best attorney with the most expertise and experience who is more than knowledgeable about this case type.

Always do your research when looking for the attorney, and it is even a good idea to speak with your doctors because they may even be able to offer you a referral for your case. The doctors and specialists treating your condition may be able to give you the names of some reputable brain injury attorneys that have worked with their past clients.
