Traumatic Brain Injury Claim Timeline
Lots of clients ask us how long it’s going to take for their case to be completed or settled. We don’t really know those answers. A lot of it depends on the severity of the injury. When you’re dealing with a traumatic brain injury, the injuries are usually severe. If it’s diagnosed, it could be a case that’s worth a lot in terms of past medical bills and future medical bills, and those are items that may take a while to properly evaluate. Sometimes, it is a matter of you just continuing to go to the doctor and seeking out treatment.
Patience is always a virtue with these cases. If you have a good lawyer who’s communicating with you throughout the process, they will make your life easier. Certainly, the goal in any of these cases, if you’re pursuing it, is to obtain maximum value. Traumatic brain injuries can be mild, but they can also be very, very severe and they should be taken seriously. Give us a call and we’ll evaluate your case.
Expenses Recoverable in a Brain Injury Case
Our clients who have sustained traumatic brain injuries and have subsequent cases usually incur a lot of costs. There are a lot of expert evaluations that are involved, and the cases can be expensive. One client in particular asked us, “What kind of expenses can I recover?” They asked this at the consultation. His medical bills had literally gone up the roof following the accident, and his question was, “How can I recover those?”
Given that there was an at-fault party in this case – it was a car accident – we were able to successfully pursue that case and pursue his medical bills, but not just the medical bills in the past but also the medical bills he’s reasonably certain to incur in the future. That’s the value of having a trial lawyer who is able to effectively evaluate every single element of your traumatic brain injury case and pursue the maximum value for your recovery.
We will be glad to review your case for you. Give us a call.
Definition of a Traumatic Brain Injury
There’s a lot of talk about traumatic brain injuries in the state of Florida. We had a client recently in Tampa who basically asked us that question: What constitutes a traumatic brain injury? Usually, it’s a significant blow to the head but the injury could also be mild. There are mild cases of TBI and there are also serious cases, where someone sustained a closed head injury, brain damage.
The quick answer, and it kind of goes in line with the times these days, is to go get tested. Get tested and find out if you have one. There are medical facilities that will perform studies that will determine whether you’ve suffered or sustained a traumatic brain injury. After that, if you have an injury and there’s a party that’s at-fault, go see a lawyer who is experienced in that area of law, who will take your case to trial, if necessary, and who will effectively evaluate the case.
We’ll be glad to review your claim with you. Give us a call in Tampa.
