Personal Injury Areas of Expertise

What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries?

A traumatic brain injury is characterized as an external force causing injury to the brain.  They range from minor to severe.  Traumatic brain injury victims often suffer from headaches, blurry vision or dizziness, coordination problems, memory loss, unusual fatigue, concentration issues, nausea and concussion symptoms.

What Causes Traumatic Brain Injuries?

Generally traumatic brain injuries are caused by the following:  falls, motor vehicle collisions and objects striding the head, injuring the brain.  Falls that are the result of someone else’s negligence are often compensable.  You should seek a lawyer to determine if you have a case.  Motor vehicle accidents which are caused by another, are compensable and proper legal representation is highly recommended to deal with the professionals at the insurance companies who often disregard what they cannot see. 

Will My Traumatic Brain Injury Case Go to Court?

Most cases in Massachusetts do not go to trial.  If you have a competent attorney and a valid case, your case will be presented to the insurance company and to the insurance defense trial lawyer in the best light.  They will understand the seriousness all along.

However, insurance companies often will not pay the full amount a victim is entitled to without a lawsuit.  Also, many brain injury cases take time to develop, with injuries changing and manifesting in different ways.  In those instances, we may need to file suit because of the statute of limitations.

A lawsuit is not something to worry about.  Your attorney will give you an overview prior to filing a lawsuit and be there with you every step of the way.  Your attorney will secure documents from you, such as lost earnings documents and medical records.  Your attorney will help you answer the written interrogatories.  Your attorney will, or should, take sufficient time to prepare you for a deposition.  After that, the insurance company will have everything a jury would have to evaluate your case.  Most brain injury cases settle by this stage and don’t go to trial.
