Colburn Law

Everett Brain Injury Attorney

The brain is one of the most important organs in the body, responsible for controlling nearly every function necessary for daily life. If we sustain any damage to the brain, the injury can disrupt these functions and cause permanent disability, impacting our daily lives.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a major cause of death and injury in the United States. If you sustain a TBI due to the actions of another person, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against him or her. In these situations, the Everett brain injury lawyer at Colburn Law can help you secure the compensation you need to treat your TBI.

Why Choose Our Everett Brain Injury Lawyers

  • Our firm understands that money can be limited after a TBI. That’s why we operate on a contingency fee basis—if we do not secure compensation on your behalf, we do not charge legal fees.
  • Our traumatic brain injury lawyer has handled multiple types of personal injury claims, from car collisions to construction site accidents.
  • Our attorney believes in honesty and transparency throughout the litigation process. We will always be available to answer your questions and provide timely updates about your claim.

Can You File a Lawsuit for a TBI?

Under Washington law, TBI victims who sustain their injuries as a result of another person’s negligence may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. In cases involving car accidents or slip and falls, you may also be eligible to file an insurance claim over the injury.

In either case, you will need to prove that the at-fault party directly caused your accident and the resulting TBI. If you are filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party, you will need to prove four important elements:

  • The at-fault party owed you a duty of care.
  • The at-fault party breached his or her duty of care.
  • You suffered injuries as a direct result of the breach of care.
  • You sustained damages that you can collect compensation for.

Do You Need a Lawyer for a TBI?

Proving a TBI case can be complex, depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident. For example, if you sustained a TBI after a car collision, you will need to prove that the driver’s actions breached his or her duty to drive safely and follow traffic laws, using pieces of evidence such as surveillance footage or police reports. If your case involves a negligent landlord, you will need to prove that he or she knew about the hazard that caused your accident and failed to reasonably repair it.

Hiring an attorney to represent your TBI claim can streamline the investigation and litigation processes. Your lawyer will have access to the resources and expert witnesses necessary to craft a compelling case in your favor. Your attorney will also be able to negotiate with insurance companies, present your case to the courtroom, and handle all legal processes so you can focus on recovery.
