Brain injuries are – to say the very least – traumatic. The specific diagnosis is what determines how long you will recover, if you are able to make a full recovery, and how it impacts your life. However, regardless of that diagnosis, the legal aspects of a brain injury (also known as a Traumatic Brain Injury) are a key factor in how your future unfolds. That’s why it is imperative that if you or a loved one has suffered from a brain injury because of someone else’s negligence, you contact a DC Brain Injury Attorney.
Why Do I Need An Attorney?
We hear it all the time: “Why do I need a lawyer when I can just deal with the insurance company myself?” You certainly can do that, but when you handle your claim on your own, you risk leaving thousands – yes, THOUSANDS – of dollars in a potential settlement offer in the hands (and banks) of the insurance company.
When you get representation from a lawyer who knows the laws surrounding your case, you, in a sense, turn the tables and take control of your claim, your injury, and your life. It’s important to note: YOUR INJURY IS NOT YOUR FAULT, and it simply isn’t fair for you to be left with all the aftermath that includes:
- Mounting Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Lost Future Wages
- Loss of Quality of Life
- Pain and Suffering
- And so much more
What Should You Do When You’ve Been Injured?
Your health and well being is paramount to anything else. Some brain injuries don’t present immediately, so it’s best to put your health first and get to the doctor as soon as possible if you’ve hit your head in an accident. This is especially true if the accident was caused by someone else. Even what may seem like just a small bump needs to be checked by a medical professional as soon as possible.
Here’s why: When insurance company adjusters and their army of lawyers determine settlement amounts, they (like us) will pull every document that pertains to your claim – including medical documents. They look specifically at how long it took you to seek medical treatment for your injuries. If you waited a few days, they might try to use that against you to reduce your settlement amount.
But don’t worry – that’s why we’re here. We’re working for you, and our goal is to get you a fair and reasonable settlement for your injuries. It can be difficult to understand every step of the legalities surrounding personal injury lawsuit, so we’ll keep you informed through each step of the legal process.
