It is important to understand the factors that prove liability after a TBI injury.
The more clear cut on who is responsible for your TBI the higher the reward could be. Suffering a TBI at work is easy to prove who is at fault. However, it is important to seek medical attention and speak to an attorney like those at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm. There are other compensation avenues besides just medical costs and lost wages. These include non-economic damages like pain and suffering.
If there are multiple people responsible for your TBI, then you can file a claim against each. It could be more complicated, but it could also mean more compensation for your injuries.
The insurance company adjusters and lawyers will try everything to pay the least amount as possible. They could try to influence a judge or jury and make you seem unlikeable. A judge or jury will look at age, occupation, previous medical history and all factors into your TBI. But, the more well-liked you are, the larger the settlement could be.
If the trial goes to court, it is important to pick the best venue. Damages in one state can be different than another. So, it is best to pick a knowledgeable brain injury attorney who knows the best place for your case.
