Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

Insurance companies often try to save money by underestimating claimants’ damages and losses, and offering lowball settlements. Sometimes, insurers may deny a valid claim outright. Insurance companies are more likely to take advantage of clients without legal representation. Hiring a lawyer can help you go up against an insurance company during a brain injury claim. Whether you are dealing with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance or a reckless driver’s auto insurer, a lawyer can take care of the legal processes while you focus on healing.

Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur any time something impacts the head or brain enough to cause damage. The most common accidents that lead to brain injuries, such as concussions and contusions, are auto accidents, sports injuries, falls, medical malpractice and acts of violence. Negligent parties often contribute to brain injuries.

A negligent sports coach may not properly equip team members with helmets, for example, or a physician may carelessly damage a baby’s brain during birth complications. If a negligent person caused you or a loved one’s injuries, you may have grounds for an injury claim in Washington. A claim could result in payment for your past and future brain-injury related damages.

What to Do After Suffering a Brain Injury

Once a physician diagnoses you with a serious traumatic or acquired brain injury, consider whether someone else could be responsible for your damages. Write down a description of the accident in as much detail as possible. List the names of everyone involved. Notify the police, your employer, an insurance company, or other authorities about your injury, if applicable. Keep copies of your medical reports, as well as any other documents relating to your case.

Focus on your personal health first, following your physician’s treatment recommendations and concentrating on recovery. Once you are well enough, call Colburn Law to discuss your case. We will ask you questions about what happened, such as where you were and how the injury occurred. Then, we will give our honest opinion on whether your case has merit.

Determining Liability for a TBI

Recovering compensation for your brain injury takes identifying the at-fault party and proving negligence. Negligence is someone’s failure to fulfill his or her standards of care to the victim according to the circumstances. If your attorney can prove that the defendant owed you a special standard of care, breached this standard, and caused your brain injury, you could receive a settlement or verdict for your damages. You may qualify for past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
