Elements of a Brain Injury Lawsuit

To file a lawsuit, the brain injury victim must have suffered trauma as a result of another’s negligence. In this type of claim, the attorney representing the injured party needs to prove the following:

  • Duty of Care: This refers to a legal obligation that requires an individual to exercise a reasonable level of care to prevent harm to others. For instance, a doctor has a duty to perform up to the standard of care established by the medical community.
  • Breach of Duty: An individual may be considered negligent if they breach their duty of care. For example, if a doctor performs an operation in a manner considered unacceptable by the medical community’s standards, they may have breached their professional duty.
  • Causation: The defendant’s negligence must have been directly responsible for the injury or damage that occurred.
  • Damages: For a victim to file a claim, the injury needs to have caused either economic or noneconomic damages.

Use of Medical Experts in Brain Injury Cases

At Morgan & Morgan, our brain injury attorneys work with medical experts who help us demonstrate causation. To demonstrate a link between the defendant’s negligence and our client’s injuries, these experts will examine medical records and conclude whether the medical professional failed to meet the standard of care required by their profession.

They will also compile evidence to prove the failure, such as creating computer simulations of the accident. Our experts’ testimony helps show jurors a correlation between the responsible party’s negligence and our client’s brain injury. Our attorneys’ ability to utilize expert witness testimony has led to many successful verdicts and settlements.

What Types of Brain Injury Cases Do Our Attorneys Handle?

Our Bowling Green brain injury attorneys handle lawsuits regarding the following types of accidents:

  • Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents: In brain injury lawsuits involving motor vehicle accidents, the defendant is commonly a driver who failed to operate their vehicle responsibly. In fact, motor vehicle crashes were the leading cause of traumatic brain injury-related hospitalizations for people 15 to 44 years old, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
  • Medical Malpractice/Birth Injury: Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider deviates from the standard of care expected in the medical community, resulting in an injury to the patient.
  • Workplace Accidents: When a worker suffers a brain injury on the job, they may be able to recover compensation through workers’ compensation benefits. They may be able to receive compensation if a third party was negligent in causing them harm.

What Can I Be Compensated for in a Brain Injury Lawsuit?

When an individual files a lawsuit after suffering a brain injury, they may be able to recoup compensation for economic and noneconomic damages:

  • Medical Bills: In a brain injury lawsuit, victims can claim compensation for any medical bills related to the injury. For example, a person may be able to file a lawsuit to gain compensation for expenses related to doctor’s visits, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and occupational therapy.
  • Pain and Suffering: Victims of brain injuries may be eligible to pursue monetary damages for any lasting physical or emotional pain such as brain damage or amnesia.
  • Loss of Life’s Enjoyment: In a successful brain injury lawsuit, the plaintiff may also be entitled to compensation for inability to participate in activities they once enjoyed.
  • Lost Wages: Individuals who suffer brain injuries may miss substantial time at work. By filing a brain injury lawsuit, victims may be able to recover compensation for any lost wages that resulted from the brain trauma. Additionally, victims may also receive compensation for any damage to their future earning ability.
  • Wrongful Death: When a brain injury is fatal, the victim’s family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In these cases, the family can pursue compensation for any financial damages, such as funeral costs or lost wages, resulting from their loved one’s death.

Members of the family may also be able to file a lawsuit for the unique losses they face, including pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
