A Traumatic Brain Injury Claim from Start to Finish
In order to be eligible for a claim, you have to be able to identify a liable party. This could be an individual person or a larger group of people responsible for the harm you have suffered.
Here are some reasons you may file a TBI claim:
Violation of Duty to Care. A medical professional violated a legal obligation to provide care for you in a reasonable manner. For example, your nurses have a duty to care for you that they must abide by.
Breached Duty. You can file for breach of duty if a liable party does something wrong. For example, a doctor could operate on you in a way that does not meet the standards to which doctors are held.
Causation. You can truly only file a claim if the individual or entity did something that directly caused you to be injured. It needs to have also caused damages to you for you to file a claim.
How Medical Experts Help in TBI Claims
Your Mississippi traumatic brain injury attorneys may hire an expert to look at your claim. The medical experts will be able to look at the details of your case from a different perspective than your lawyer. They can tell us very useful medical information that will strengthen a claim for negligence against the liable party.
They will use your medical records to prove that there is causation between what the liable party did and your injuries. They can use simulations to show exactly how it happened, too. They mainly do this to show a jury how and why you got the TBI.
Most Common Types of Traumatic Brain Injury Cases
Our lawyer knows that TBI can happen to many people in many different ways. We aim to get you representation for your TBI from a wide range of incidents, including:
Auto accidents. This includes cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. We see TBIs with pedestrian victims, as well. These collision accidents account for a great deal of TBI victims. The liable party is almost always a vehicle driver who was acting carelessly. It could be someone who reached in their backseat to grab something and caused a collision. Most people who are victims of these accidents suffer terrible injuries. We can help.
Medical malpractice. This includes birth injuries, in some cases, which are deeply saddening. These cases sometimes have more than one person as the liable party. It can be the hospital as a whole, for example. Whoever is at fault is typically guilty of behaving in a way that goes against a standard of care expected of them when treating patients.
Workplace accidents. A majority of serious workplace accidents can be seen on construction sites. Anyone who is hurt at work may be able to look to their employer for workers’ compensation. If there was a third party that caused the TBI, they could also bring a claim against them for negligence.
Getting the Compensation You Deserve
When you bring a TBI claim, you can get compensation for the following damages that are both economic and non-economic:
Medical expenses. Odds are this injury is costing you a lot of money. Perhaps you needed to see a specialist for treatment. You are entitled to receive compensation for all sorts of medical care that may include:
- Hospital bills
- Vocational rehab
- Physical therapy
- Primary care doctor bills
Emotional/mental damages. This is also called “pain and suffering” and refers to the unseen turmoil you have experienced because of your injury. TBIs can cause memory loss, brain damage, and an array of mental health issues.
Decrease in quality of life. Because of a TBI, you may be experiencing a loss of enjoyment of life. It’s difficult to put a price on happiness. You are entitled to a fair amount of compensation for this type of damage.
Lost earnings. You have likely had to miss a good deal of work. Any time you have had to take can be compensated. That includes the sick and vacation time you’ve had to use up because of this TBI. You may also be entitled to compensation for any lost earnings you may experience in your lifetime.
