What amount of compensation is a brain injury victim entitled to?
The amount we will request in your brain injury claim will depend on a number of factors:
- The extent of injury
- The amount and quality of evidence we can acquire
- The effect the injury has on your emotional state
- Your medical prognosis
Brain injuries are very different from other types of injuries because medical care is often ongoing, and brain damage is very difficult to assess, monitor, and predict. We will need to use several types of experts to evaluate the extent of the brain injury, focusing on factors like memory, cognitive impairment, and behavioral changes. Once we have a good idea of how you were affected by your brain injury, we can estimate future medical expenses and decide on a fair compensation amount.
How will you prove my brain injury resulted from another’s negligence?
Our brain injury lawyers have worked with many families to find them justice after a catastrophic injury turned their lives upside down. Each case is unique, but the goal in all of them is to get you fair compensation to care for your brain injured loved one.
Proving negligence in a brain injury case can be a long and challenging process. Our accident investigators and field experts will gather all the pertinent details about the accident and the associated injuries, organize all the information, prioritize, and create strategic arguments centered around proving that another’s negligence caused the accident and brain injury. Once we have all the information we need, we are ready to move forward with a demand for money damages.
