Why Do You Need a TBI Lawyer?
Negotiating a brain injury claim can be difficult if you have no legal experience. Insurance companies can take advantage of clients who do not have legal representation. They may severely undervalue your claim, threaten a “last” or “final” offer, or deny a valid claim altogether. Hiring a lawyer gives you more power during settlement negotiations, to fight for fair compensation. It also gives you the ability to take your brain injury claim to court, if your attorney believes this will result in greater financial recovery.
How Do Brain Injuries Happen?
The two main types of brain injuries are traumatic and acquired. A traumatic brain injury can arise from an impact to the brain, such as in an auto accident, fall, sports impact, or act of violence. An acquired brain injury occurs when something goes wrong inside the brain, such as a lack of oxygen or a brain hemorrhage. Both types of brain injuries can be serious, and threaten the victim’s life.
Most serious brain injuries happen when one or more parties are negligent. Negligence, or a breach of duty of care, can cause preventable accidents and personal injuries. A drunk driver, for example, could cause a severe car accident that gives a victim a permanent brain injury. Negligence, carelessness, recklessness, and intent to harm can all cause accidents and injuries that impact the brain. When this happens, the victim could have grounds for a civil claim against the at-fault parties.
Who Is Liable For a Brain Injury in Sammamish?
Filing a brain injury claim in Sammamish could be the right choice if you believe the injury would not have happened but for the negligence of someone else.
