Recovering from a severe brain injury can take a considerable amount of time and resources — and filing a claim for compensation against the person who caused your trauma can add significantly to these burdens. 

For this and many other reasons, it is critical to pursue compensation with the help of an experienced brain injury attorney. The legal landscape for these claims can be vastly complex, and mistakes can leave you without the financial compensation you need to pay for your treatment and the impact of your injuries.

What an Experienced Brain Injury Attorney Can Do for You

With a brain injury claim, time is of the essence. In most cases, any case or claim seeking compensation for your injuries must be filed within two years of the date of your injury. You may miss vital deadlines such as this without representation.

Additionally, there are a range of tasks required to submit a claim. By retaining the services of a competent brain injury attorney, you relieve yourself of learning how to complete these tasks and navigating them well enough to successfully secure compensation.

The tasks that your attorney can assist you with include:

Gathering Evidence About Your Case

You may know how you were hurt, but proving that another person was negligent and owes you compensation for those injuries requires documentation, records, and the testimony of witnesses. 

Gathering all of this information together takes time, effort, and intimate knowledge of the legal system, especially when witnesses are not cooperative or do not want to provide records.

Negotiating a Settlement for Your Case

It takes the trained legal mind and skill of an experienced brain injury attorney to know when to settle your injury case. Although you experience first-hand the physical, emotional, and financial pain of your injuries, translating that experience into an appropriate amount of compensation to request is complicated.

You can expect that your brain injury attorney will seek an appropriate settlement that compensates you fully and efficiently for your injuries. If an offer is not in your best interests, you can trust that your attorney will also let you know this.

Taking Your Case to Trial

If you and the negligent party that caused your brain injury cannot reach a settlement, you can take your case to trial to seek compensation. Preparing for and succeeding at trial is a challenging process and greatly benefits from prior courtroom experience.

While hiring an attorney is not an ironclad guarantee that your case will succeed at trial, you can be confident that your brain injury attorney will present your case in accordance with laws and procedures and in the most impactful way for the judge and jury to consider.
