Brain Injury Settlements
A Note from Sean
The settlement amount you may get for a brain injury can vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury from which you’re suffering. It requires both medical professionals, and legal professionals to sit down with you to understand your injury, and how it has affected your life, your body, and those around you. It’s very important going forward after suffering from a traumatic brain injury to keep a diary, to keep notes of everything around you that is different, and everything about your body that is different so that you don’t forget those things, and you’re able to communicate those to your doctor, and to your lawyer.
The story of anybody with a traumatic brain injury is different from everyone else’s. It takes experienced legal counsel to help guide you through the difficulties of a traumatic brain injury, to make a determination of what that settlement that you’re entitled to could be worth. The folks at The Olson Law Firm have experience with these kinds of injuries, and we have a keen eye for detail. It’s those two things put together that will help to make sure that you get the most out of your settlement as you can.
More on TBI Cases
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a very serious injury. After suffering an injury like this, you may be able to get financial compensation. To do so, you’ll like to have to meet with a personal injury lawyer.
Some brain injury claims require a trial before resolution. However, the vast majority settle outside of the courtroom. In fact, data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) indicated that approximately 95 percent of all personal injury claims settle without a trial.
In the early stages of a claim, victims and their family members often have a straightforward question: How much compensation will actually be available? Unfortunately, this is not a question that allows for a straightforward answer. The truth is that every brain injury claim is different. The specific facts of the case dictate what your settlement offer will be.
To get the full and fair settlement offer that you or your loved one deserves under the law, you must have a strong legal case. It is imperative that you work with medical and legal professionals. They have the skills and experience to help you document and present your claim.
Understanding Personal Injury Damages
With limited exceptions, a personal injury settlement is compensatory in nature. Injured victims seek compensation equivalent to damages sustained in the accident. Compensation is available for direct economic losses. These include medical bills, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and long-term care or therapy. In addition, compensation is also available for certain non-economic losses. Brain injury victims can recover compensation for pain and suffering, distress, and loss of lifestyle enjoyment.
Work With Professionals Who Can Document Your Losses
Every brain injury claim is unique. The value of a settlement offer can vary dramatically, depending largely on the severity of the injury. Victims should not go through the claims process all alone. To get a full and fair recovery, victims and their loved ones should work closely with experienced medical professionals and legal professionals who can fully understand the effects of the injury.
Careful documentation is necessary to pursue a successful settlement offer. For example, injured victims should always keep a diary or notes about their pain, symptoms, and recovery. With full information, doctors will be able to help a victim get the proper medical treatment. In addition, the Olson Law Firm will be able to build a compelling legal claim so that victims can get the most out of their settlement.
