How Can Traumatic brain injuries Impact an Accident Victim’s Life?
Traumatic brain injuries are among the most severe and life-altering injuries an individual can experience. The brain, being the control center of the body, is a delicate organ susceptible to damage. A TBI can result in immediate physical and cognitive impairments, affecting a person's ability to think, communicate, and perform daily activities.
The required medical treatment for a TBI can be extensive. In addition to the initial emergency care, individuals with TBIs often require ongoing medical attention, rehabilitation, and therapy to regain lost functions and facilitate recovery. Medical treatments may include brain imaging, neurological evaluations, medication management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and cognitive rehabilitation.
Depending on the severity of the injury, individuals may require long-term or lifelong medical care, including round-the-clock supervision, regular check-ups, therapy sessions, and ongoing medication management. These future medical expenses can be substantial and place a significant financial burden on the accident victim and their loved ones. An experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys can help assess the potential future medical needs and factor them into the settlement demand.
What Are the Common Causes of TBIs?
Various accidents can lead to traumatic brain injuries.
When negligence plays a major role in this type of severe accident, TBIs are often caused by:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Construction accidents
- Commercial vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
If you suffered a traumatic brain injury due to negligence, you may be entitled to compensation to cover the cost of medical care, lost wages, loss of quality of life, and more.
How Can a Traumatic brain injury lawyer Help?
If you suffered a traumatic brain injury due to an accident caused by someone else's negligence, a lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys can help you pursue compensation and will handle every aspect of your case, allowing you to focus on your recovery and moving on with your life.
A TBI lawyer will review the details of the case, including medical records, accident reports, and any other evidence related to the injury. They will work closely with your treating physicians and other medical professionals to evaluate the extent of the TBI, the impact this injury has had on your life, and the available insurance coverage.
Investigating the accident and assessing your medical condition helps an attorney to identify all liable parties, prove negligence, understand the strength of the case, and determine an appropriate settlement value.
Will My Attorney Handle Communication with the Insurance company?
Your lawyer will establish communication with the insurance company and inform them you now have legal representation. This means that any and all communication with the claims adjuster must go through your attorney.
Your legal team will send the insurance company a settlement demand letter that outlines your injuries, the liability of the insured party, and the damages being sought. This letter will serve as the starting point for negotiations.
They will engage in negotiations with the insurance company's representatives to reach a fair settlement. During negotiations, your traumatic brain injury lawyer will provide the insurance company with all relevant evidence, including medical records, expert opinions, and any other documentation that supports the claim. This evidence helps establish the credibility of the claim and strengthens the argument for fair compensation.
Insurance companies may try to minimize their liability by offering low settlement amounts. Your attorney will carefully evaluate these offers and, if necessary, counter with a higher demand supported by evidence. They will negotiate skillfully, leveraging their knowledge of TBI cases and their understanding of fair compensation for such injuries.
If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, your TBI lawyer will explore the option of filing a lawsuit and taking the case to court. This demonstrates to the insurance company that the victim is prepared to pursue legal action if a fair resolution cannot be reached through negotiations.
As your attorney prepares your case for court, they will continue to negotiate with the claims adjuster.
In most cases, an insurance company will settle out of court. They do not want to take the risk of a lengthy and costly trial.
