Just hearing the words brain injury is enough to cause feelings of panic and fear. When someone has suffered a brain injury in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, or a motorcycle accident, the victim’s entire life, and that of their family, can be turned upside down in the blink of an eye.
When someone suffers a brain injury, their entire lives may change. Many suffer personality changes, go through physical changes, and may even lose control over bodily functions. The more serious a brain injury, the more significant the impact on their life and their family members’ lives.
In addition to the devastating consequences of brain injuries, there are other severe injuries that can greatly impact an individual’s life, such as spinal cord injuries. Some common causes of these spinal cord injuries can be as traumatic as those leading to brain damages. If you or someone you know is trying to navigate the aftermath of a brain injury, understanding the timeline for filing a brain injury claim can be invaluable in the legal journey ahead.
A personal injury attorney who has a proven track record of helping those who have suffered a brain injury can help a family recover financially. Following a brain injury, victims may require long-term nursing care, home modifications to ensure safety, and may require extensive rehabilitation. The person who is responsible for the injury should be held financially liable for these unexpected expenses.
When someone suffers a brain injury, there are several types of compensation which they may be entitled to collect. Some of the types of compensation include:
When hiring a brain injury attorney to help with insurance claims, victims have a better chance of getting a full picture of the types of damages which they may be entitled to collect. Many times it will not be evident for several weeks or months just what the recovery level will be and this may change the time frame for filing a claim.
Most of us have some form of insurance and we anticipate when we file a legitimate claim that it will be paid out in a timely manner. We often forget that insurers lose money when they pay out claims. When someone causes someone else to suffer because they were negligent, their insurance company will fight hard to minimize the amount of the claim they are going to pay.
Recovering damages after a traumatic brain injury is never easy. Anyone who is fighting on behalf of themselves or a loved one following a brain injury should be aware of the following:
Victims of a brain injury have rights and to fully understand their rights, they should speak with an attorney who has a proven track record of getting results for their clients. While everyone knows that past results are not always a reflection of future results, knowing there is someone committed to advocating for a victim can provide victims and their family with peace of mind.
One of the reasons why it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after a brain injury diagnosis is time. Under Nevada’s statute of limitations, victims must file a claim within two years. This may seem like a long time, but the reality is the investigation of the cause of the brain injury and other parts of the claim process can be complicated. An attorney who has experience can take care of some of the following:
Working with an experienced brain injury lawyer can help ensure that a victim’s rights are protected while working towards the maximum settlement which may be obtained on their behalf. Consultations are free and can help make sure victims and their families understand what rights they have and have a better understanding of their legal options.
