If you’ve suffered from a concussion or a brain injury as a result of an accident, then you’ve come to the right place for help. Merchant Law has helped many Cochrane residents receive compensation for the lifelong consequences of these injuries.
These include medical expenses not covered by Medicare, compensation for pain and suffering, and compensation for loss of income and earning capacity. When you’re facing a lifetime of chronic pain, and the reduced ability to work, then this is money you’ll need to stay independent and on your feet.
These cases can get complex because many brain injuries are “invisible.” It can be difficult to prove the extent of your injuries without help. In addition, the defendant will be trying to prove you were responsible for the accident, so they can pay less. You’ll need help from an experienced lawyer to get the compensation you deserve.
Prepare For a Hard Fight
Brain injury cases, when compared to an average accident claim, are often much more valuable than many other types of personal injury cases. This means the insurance company who is liable by law to pay out your much higher than average compensation claim has a lot more motivation to fight as hard as they possibly can to avoid paying you what you fully deserve.
For instance, the defendant’s insurance company will be working hard to claim you were at-fault for the accident so they can pay the bare minimum accident coverage they owe in these cases.
Often, brain injuries happen in cases which are already complex, such as truck accident cases or motorcycle accident cases. When this happens, the case requires even more expertise to prepare, and to win. Our lawyers take an active interest in your care and treatment as this is very important to document all of your injuries. You may be sent to psychiatrists and psychologists, neurologists and other brain specialist doctors. Even a mild concussion can cause behavioral changes and neurological damages with long lasting impacts on your future enjoyment of life as well as impact on your capacity to earn income. It typically follows that the more severe the head injury, the more likely the harm caused will be likewise greater. Your lawyer has to get all of that evidence in order to get the proper and just settlement or trial judgment for you.
All of this is made tougher by the fact that almost every plaintiff with a brain injury was unconscious or dazed directly after their accident. This means there was no chance to take photographs, get witness information, or exchange insurance information with the driver. Your injury almost serves as an advantage to the defence in this sense that you may not remember much of what occured. It will take a savvy lawyer to help you overcome this. Interviewing all the other witnesses and getting you to the correct medical treatment experts for their opinions is all key to winning your case at the appropriate level of compensation you rightly deserve.
