Why You Need a Lawyer After a Traumatic Brain Injury

by Staff Blogger | August 12th, 2019

Whether you or someone you love recently suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), it’s important to have experienced legal representation on your side when seeking compensation. TBIs are associated with enormous expenses, including surgeries, physical rehabilitation, and even around-the-clock professional care. Many TBI victims experience impaired fine motor skills or cognitive function, making it difficult or impossible for them to remain in their careers or work in any capacity. When you’re facing expensive medical bills and have lost your family’s source of income, you need to file a compensation claim against the party who was responsible for the TBI. But in most cases, that means filing a claim against their insurance provider—and insurance companies are notoriously strict when it comes to paying settlements. Even if you have plenty of proof that the accident wasn’t your fault and can show how the TBI negatively impacted your life, your claim may still be reduced or denied. Insurance companies want to protect their profits, and they know that ordinary people often have few resources after serious accidents. That’s why they deploy many different tactics to get victims to accept small settlements or to even give up entirely.
