How a Brain Injury Attorney Can Help After an Accident

It can be hard to know what to do after a personal injury. You will have many medical appointments, confusing tests, and specialist consultations after a TBI. A lawyer can guide you through all of this and determine if a traumatic brain injury lawsuit is an appropriate next step.

If you do decide to pursue a traumatic brain injury lawsuit, your attorney can help you gather important evidence, determine all the parties who are at fault for your injuries, and assess your damages.

Your lawyer can also review the available insurance policies and negotiate with insurance carriers to get you the best outcome possible.

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuits

Filing a successful brain injury lawsuit requires meeting several key elements. You must prove that the other party was negligent and that you sustained damages and injuries or that some defective product caused your injury.

Proving Negligence in TBI Cases

Proving negligence in a TBI case is similar to any other personal injury claim. You must show that the other party failed to use reasonable care, which is what any reasonable individual would do in similar circumstances.

That’s why it’s important to work closely with an experienced brain injury lawyer who can help you prove liability and negligence.

Damages in TBI Cases

Traumatic brain injuries involve significant medical bills and permanent injuries that affect the victim’s life forever. In a TBI case, you can get compensation for economic as well as non-economic damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are tangible losses that can be documented and have a clear monetary value. They include some of the following:

  • Medical bills and treatment costs, including ambulance rides
  • Lost wages
  • Home health care services
  • Property damage
  • Cost of future medical care
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • The death of a loved one

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are awarded in lawsuits to compensate a victim for intangible losses that are not directly linked to out-of-pocket expenses. They include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental anguish.

However, in Florida, you must have a permanent injury to recover non-economic losses if the injury occurs in a car crash.
