Components of a Brain Injury Lawsuit
A traumatic brain injury occurs when an individual suffers a bump, bruise, or jolt to the head, according to the Centers for Disease Control. This can take place in a car accident, with heavy machinery, and more. If you would like to file a successful brain injury claim, your attorney must prove your injury, and that it was caused by the negligence of another.
This is particularly true when your brain injury was the result of negligence on the part of medical professional. For example, a doctor must be shown to have a duty of care to their patient, they breached that duty, and an injury was the direct result. Then, and only then, can you receive compensation for your brain injury.
TBI Can Be Devastating
A healthy brain is a key part of functioning normally on a day-to-day basis. When the brain is injured, functioning normally becomes more difficult because of the effects a brain injury has. Some of TBI’s most devastating effects include:
- Headaches and difficulty concentrating
- Personality changes
- Psychological changes
- Loss of memory
This is just the tip of the iceberg. TBI can cause many other symptoms that disrupt your daily life, and get in the way of you being yourself.
Who is Responsible?
Responsibility is sometimes difficult to determine, but can include healthcare professionals, motorists, employers, landlords, and more. A slippery staircase or a deadly machine can turn another day on the job or a trip to the grocery store into a nightmare, through no fault of your own.
Similarly, a trip to the doctor for a routine operation might end in disaster, leaving you with few options for recourse. Our attorneys are adept at determining negligence, and how best to build a case around an individual’s breach of duty of care or other expectations society places upon them.
