Serious Accident Lawyers – When Do We Need Them? – Personal Injury Law
Serious accident lawyers – When do we need them?
Serious brain injuries fall in two main categories:
Traumatic brain injuries
Non-traumatic brain injuries
In both cases those injuries are most likely to be acquired in an accident that is someone else’s fault. For the first type of injury, vehicle accidents, violent acts and sports are the most likely cause. The second type of brain injury is most likely to result as a consequence of neurodegenerative disease or mild personal injury accident.
Whatever the case, that lead you to hospitalization, as long as you are the victim, you will need to find a good brain damage lawyer and file a lawsuit. You should contact the lawyer from the very beginning as TBI cases are known for being the ones earning the highest financial settlements in the personal injury field of law. So let’s focus on them!
The two main TBI types are:
TBI that resulted from a head damage during an accident, or in other words open and closed head injuries. The open one may occur when a penetrating object had entered your skull, and the second one, of course, does not involve any object penetration. Both of them, however can be fatal for the victim unless treated properly and in a timely manner.
TBI that resulted from fractures of the skull. This type of brain injury may also be acquired due to someone else’s negligence. In such cases, especially if there is excess bleeding or even worse – a hematoma, immediate medical and legal actions should be taken in order to get a positive outcome.
Secondary injuries like infections and various complications may appear at a later stage of your treatment. That is why you better not accept the initial financial compensation offered by the negligence party’s insurance company to cover your medical bills. You never know how complicated your medical state will get in the future and how much more money you will need to cover your expenses until you fully recover. The best thing is to hire an expert brain damage lawyer practicing in your area to defend you and guide you through all the long legal procedures.
