Steps To Take When You’ve Experienced A Brain Injury

Steps To Take When You’ve Experienced A Brain InjuryA slip and fall accident, a car accident, a motorcycle accident, and various other types of accidents can all result in a traumatic brain injury. These injuries will often require a great deal of medical intervention to allow a person to recover, and some may not fully recover at all, which is why it is always important to seek compensation if you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury due to another party’s negligence. Brain injuries can even result in death when considering more serious cases, and this could require the family or loved one of an injured person to seek compensation with a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf after succumbing to their injuries.

What Is A Brain Injury?

The brain is a delicate organ, and it’s also the organ tasked with controlling the body and all of its systems. A brain injury is damage to the brain caused by an external force, rather than disease or degeneration, and this force has to come from the negligence of another party to file a brain injury lawsuit. Brain injuries can range greatly in severity, with mild cases causing a very temporary change in mental status and minimal medical intervention, and severe cases resulting in permanent injury, amnesia, or unconsciousness and a great deal of required medical assistance. Some brain injuries can even cause a permanent disabled status, and this should always be considered when filing a lawsuit due to a brain injury caused by negligence.

One of the most common brain injuries a person can receive is a concussion, and concussions can be caused by falls or accidents alike. While relatively common, severe concussions can leave lingering effects on the brain, and all people who have experienced a concussion should seek prompt medical attention to properly assess their situation and need for additional medical care. A concussion which goes unattended can hide additional injuries, and these injuries can be devastating when provided with uninterrupted time.

Seeking Compensation For A Brain Injury

When seeking compensation for a brain injury, a person must first be able to prove that their injury was caused by the negligence of another party. If they were in an automobile or motorcycle accident, it must be proven that the other party was at fault for causing their accident and their injury in order for their case to hold up in a court of law. If a slip and fall accident is at fault for the brain injury, a person will then need to prove that the slip and fall occurred due to another party’s negligence if they wish to seek monetary compensation for their damages.

In instances of traumatic brain injury, medical costs and missed work wages can begin to rise exponentially in a short amount of time. For this reason, seeking compensation is a reasonable and recommended action in order to make the most of the situation and ensure necessary expenses will continue to be able to be covered.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
