Establishing Fault in a Traumatic Brain Injury Case
Determining who is at fault for your injuries depends on the circumstances of the accident. Liable parties might include:
A vehicle operator was drinking, driving while distracted, or engaging in reckless behavior. If a commercial driver such as a truck driver or bus driver caused your injury, you may also have the option to sue their employer.
A doctor performed a medical procedure or surgery that caused damage to your brain. A physician may have prescribed the wrong medication or misdiagnosed your physical condition.
Were you wearing a football helmet that was defective? Did you run into a wall in a baseball field or basketball gym that did not contain adequate wall padding? You may have also used another product that led to a concussion or other head injury. If so, your injury may have been caused by a manufacturer defect.
In a premises liability case, we can help you file a claim against the property owner if we can establish that your injuries were brought about as a result of hazardous conditions on the property. The property owner may have violated building safety codes, and you paid the price.
Why Hire a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer?
Brain injury treatment can be costly. You may incur large medical bills due to surgeries, medical procedures, medication, and physical therapy. Therefore, you may be tempted to take the first settlement that an insurance company offers. Keep in mind, however, that insurance companies rarely pay out what your claim is worth.
A D. Miller & Associates, PLLC traumatic brain injury lawyer in Missouri City can engage with the insurance companies on your behalf and help you fight for a fair settlement. We can help you build your case by:
- Gathering evidence or taking photos from the scene of the accident
- Taking statements from an eyewitness who saw your accident happen
- Viewing medical records and other relevant documents
- File a lawsuit if the insurance company denies your claim or offers an unfair settlement
Determining the Value of Your Claim
Once we understand the value of your claim, we may be able to estimate your case value. In your particular situation, you may have amassed thousands of dollars of debt in medical expenses because traumatic brain injury cases typically result in high settlement amounts. You may be eligible to claim economic and noneconomic damages including:
You can account for medical expenses such as emergency care, extended hospitalization, physical therapy, pain medication, medical devices, and in-home care or disability treatment.
You may be out of work for an extended period or permanently. If so, you may be able to reclaim lost pay, benefits, insurance, or even retirement. We may also be able to help you with any potential future compensation if you have lost earning capacity.
If you suffered extreme pain, emotional distress, or loss of consortium (companionship or the ability to provide parental guidance), we may be able to determine the value of these non-economic losses.
A D. Miller & Associates, PLLC brain injury lawyer in Missouri City, TX can sit down with you and go over the details of your case. We may be able to help you establish the value of your claim and get you the compensation you deserve.
