Different Causes of Brain Injuries
How did your traumatic brain injury occur? No matter what you answer, you can trust that our Midland brain injury lawyers will know how to investigate the situation and make the most of your case.
We can work on TBI cases that involve these causes and more:
- Motor vehicle accidents: TBIs are a common result of car crashes due to the force of impact. Head injuries can occur even when seat belts and airbags are used correctly. We can also help people who suffered a TBI in a motorcycle accident or truck accident, not just car accidents.
- Falls: Slipping on a wet surface or falling from an elevated height can cause severe head trauma. Many of the worst brain injury cases caused by falling are suffered by elders living in nursing homes that do not have enough fall prevention measures in place.
- Violence: Physical assaults and other violent attacks can lead to long-term damage to the head or brain. The perpetrator can be held accountable through the criminal justice system and the civil court system.
- On-the-job accidents: Workplace accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries. In some cases, a worker may be struck by an object or work equipment which can cause serious head trauma. Struck-by incidents are particularly prevalent in construction and industrial settings, and employers have a responsibility to ensure that safety protocols are strictly always followed.
How to Prove Liability in TBI Cases
You can be sure that the defendant in a TBI claim will not want to accept liability. No one wants to admit that they caused someone else to suffer such a serious and permanent life-changing injury, after all. To get your case moving and confidently fight for the compensation that you deserve, you will want to back your statements up with convincing evidence of liability.
Evidence that can be used to help your TBI claim includes:
- Witness testimony: This can include statements from any witnesses that may have seen the incident take place.
- Medical records: Having a medical professional’s official documentation regarding the injury can serve to validate your claim.
- Documentary evidence: This could include reports, emails, videos, or other relevant materials proving negligence by a certain party.
- Expert testimonies: An expert opinion on the effects of the brain injury and estimated losses incurred due to it may strengthen the case for liability.
- Police reports: If an official police report was created for the incident in question, this may help to establish fault on another party.
Traumatic Brain Injury Claim Value
The traumatic brain injury that you have suffered will likely impact your life in some way for the rest of your years. When we are working on your claim and calculating its value, we will keep the severity and permanency of the injury in the center focus. The compensation owed to you could be significant, but we are ready to fight for every dollar.
Different types of compensation in a TBI claim can include:
- Medical expenses: This can include the costs of hospital visits, surgeries, medications, or rehabilitation therapy.
- Lost wages: This covers any income lost due to the inability to work, including future income you won’t be able to earn.
- Pain and suffering: This type of damage compensates you for the physical and emotional anguish suffered as a result of the accident.
- Wrongful death expenses: If a brain injury resulted in the death of a loved one, funeral costs and miscellaneous losses related to that loss may be covered by the liable party.
