How Traumatic Brain Injury Claims Work

Brain injuries can range in severity and duration, but all can have devastating effects. Victims who have sustained head trauma are eligible for a variety of economic losses, including medical bills, depleted wages, and lost job opportunities.

If you or a loved one has been impacted by a brain injury, you deserve to seek justice for the negligence, abuse, or mistakes of others. At Midwest Injury Lawyers, we have represented brain injury cases involving:

Vehicle Crashes

Automobile and motorcycle accidents are common causes of traumatic brain injuries. If you or a loved one experienced head trauma because of another driver’s negligent or irresponsible behavior, you deserve to be compensated for your suffering and medical expenses.

Slips, Trips, and Falls

Did you fall at work or in a public place due to an ill-maintained, poorly lit, or slippery surface? We’ll help you hold the guilty party accountable for creating a hazardous environment that resulted in your brain injury and associated financial burdens.

Explosive Blasts

Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by explosions, such as those that might occur on a construction site. If you or someone you care for has been impacted by the blast of an explosion, reach out to our brain injury attorneys right away.

Violence or Abuse

Unfortunately, domestic abuse and assault can also result in lasting head trauma. At Midwest Injury Lawyers, we don’t tolerate violence or cruelty. Our brain injury attorneys will heavily pursue justice against the perpetrator(s) on your behalf.

FAQs About Traumatic Brain Injury Lawsuits

Q
What defines a traumatic brain injury?
A

A head injury is defined as a TBI when it results in a disruption of normal brain functioning. TBIs typically occur when the victim has experienced a serious blow, bump, or jolt to the head.

Traumatic brain injuries are categorized as either mild, moderate, or severe. Most are mild, meaning that symptoms will persist for weeks or months, but severe brain injuries can result in life-long repercussions or possibly even death.

Q
What is the time limit for filing a TBI lawsuit?
A

The statute of limitation on brain injury claims can vary. In most cases, a victim has two years from the date of the injury to file a claim against the negligent or guilty party. However, some circumstances (such as age or the cause of the accident) can change this timeline.

To improve your chances of securing a fair settlement, speak with a qualified brain injury attorney as soon as possible.

Q
Do I have to go to court to receive a brain injury payment?
A

Many traumatic brain injury cases are settled before they ever go to trial, but some are handled in court. The best course of action is to hire an attorney with a successful track record both in and out of the courtroom.

Q
Can I still receive compensation if I was partially responsible for the accident that caused my injury?
A

In some cases, yes. Discuss the circumstances of the injury with an experienced brain injury lawyer to understand where the fault truly lies and if you are eligible for full compensation.
