During a brain injury claim, an insurance company may try to persuade you to accept much less than your case is worth. Insurance companies often do not negotiate claims seriously until the claimant hires an attorney. Hiring a personal injury lawyer shows you will fight to defend your rights. Brain injury claims can be worth a significant amount of money due to associated lifetime costs. Do not settle for less. Hire an attorney to take care of legal processes on your behalf, fighting for fair recovery while you focus on healing.

Types of Brain Injuries

The two main types of brain injuries are traumatic and acquired. Traumatic brain injuries stem from external forces, such as the head striking something during a car accident or fall. An acquired brain injury arises from internal factors, such as loss of oxygen to the brain. Both types of brain injuries can cause serious and/or permanent brain damage. Different types of traumatic brain injuries include diffuse axonal injuries, concussions, contusions, and hematomas. Every brain injury is unique to the patient, and can come with different symptoms and prognoses.

Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Every brain injury might be different, but the majority share common causes. The most frequent reasons behind serious brain injuries in Washington are car accidents, fall accidents, sports incidents, medical malpractice, and acts of violence (such as gunshots or stabbings). Oftentimes, it is one person’s negligence, wanton disregard, or intent to harm that causes a severe brain injury. A negligent driver, for example, could cause a brain injury by striking a pedestrian.

When negligence or maliciousness causes brain injuries, victims may have the right to file personal injury claims in pursuit of damages. Before you can file, however, you or your attorney must identify who caused your injuries. The at-fault party could be a doctor, employer, property owner, driver, criminal, product manufacturer, or a combination of multiple parties. Hiring an attorney can help you determine the defendant and take the proper steps toward filing a claim in Kent.

Proving Negligence in a Bicycle Accident Case in

You or your loved one could secure financial compensation for your damages after a Kent brain injury if you can prove someone else’s negligence caused your accident. Proving negligence takes demonstrating four main elements: duty, breach, causation, and damages. You or your attorney must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care at the time of your injury, breached this duty, and thus caused your accident. Your lawyer must also demonstrate that real damages arose from the incident, such as medical bills, emotional distress, lost wages, and/or property damage.
