Many accidents lead to severe brain and spinal injuries. If you’ve been in a truck accident, bicycle accident, pedestrian accident, or motorbike accident then there’s a good chance you’ve taken on a brain injury that will follow you the rest of your life.
If so, you already know the bills are running high, the pain is intense, and working is a challenge. You are already having to hire people to do things you used to do for yourself. You already know you need the compensation you’re entitled to under the law.
Unfortunately, the defendant’s insurance company isn’t going to volunteer to do the right thing. They’re already working hard to make sure they don’t have to pay you a cent. You need a strong, experienced advocate on your side if you’re going to get the money you need to pay your bills and survive.
Brain injury cases need experts.
They aren’t run-of-the-mill personal injury cases for several important reasons.
Insurance companies know that brain injuries cost money and lots of it. You may be looking at years of care and supplementary services. You may not be able to work again for the foreseeable future, and they’re going to have to cover those costs.
As a result, they’re prepared to fight very hard to make it look like the accident was your fault. The more negligence they can assign to you, the less they have to pay. If they can get a judge to agree you were more than 51% negligent, then you no longer have a case.
Brain injuries can make it challenging for you to communicate with your lawyer. This means that you need someone who can diligently work around this problem to find all vital witnesses and pieces of evidence. You also need someone who will be patient with your current limitations.
Sometime plaintiffs can communicate just fine, but have gaps in their memory caused by the very injury they’re trying to get compensation for. Again, you need an expert who is prepared to work around this problem.
The parties involved.
The parties involved in a brain injury case are often difficult in their own right. If you were in an accident with a commercial trucking company then you already know they have a lot of resources to throw at your case. If you were riding a motorcycle then stigma could make it harder to fight for you.
Experience matters in these complex cases. Knowing when to negotiate and when to fight matters. Knowing how to uncover responsible parties in less-than-ideal circumstances makes a difference too.
