Fighting For Victims Of TBI
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur any time a person is struck in the head or violently jolted. These injuries often result from motor vehicle accidents, falls and other traumatic events.
At Law Office of Derek M. Hays, LLC, we realize the lasting impact that traumatic brain injuries have on victims and their loved ones. If you or someone you love has experienced a serious brain injury, we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve under the law.
Depending on the facts of your case, it may be possible to pursue damages for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages from time off work
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Caretaking costs
The Importance Of Evidence In TBI Cases
Brain injuries are serious, and survivors may require extensive medical care for years. Some may never get back their old quality of life. Determining the lifelong cost of a TBI is complex, but it is important that your personal injury attorney paint a complete picture of your current and future expenses so the court can award an appropriate amount of compensation.
To show the court the extent of a brain injury and its financial effects, your legal team will draw on a wide range of evidence, including:
- Notes from treating doctors, hospitals and physical therapists
- Medical imaging test results, including MRIs and CT scans
- The survivor’s academic or professional records, including evaluations and witness reports
- Testimony by expert witnesses
After a brain injury, it is critical to follow up thoroughly with medical care and maintain records of your treatment. Not only does it help you make the fullest possible physical recovery, but also helps to build a compelling case for compensation.
