Brain injuries can result in temporary or permanent disabilities, and a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, can significantly impact your life and future. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, you should understand your legal rights.

Many people who suffer brain injuries are not aware that they have specific legal rights, especially in cases where the brain injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. To understand these rights, you should consult with an attorney who has experience working with clients on brain injury cases. Here is some more information about how an attorney can help in your brain injury case:

Choosing an attorney for your brain injury case

One of the first steps you can take to assess the status of your potential case is to consult with a personal injury attorney who can help you understand your rights under the law. An attorney who works with these types of cases will be able to assist you in pursuing compensation for various expenses such as medical bills as well as losses such as lost wages due to time out of work. The recovery and rehabilitation phase following a brain injury can be extremely challenging, especially given the limitations of insurance coverage with regards to TBI. An attorney can help you or your loved one navigate the difficult waters of pursuing legal rights after a brain injury.

Asking the right questions

Before you select your attorney, make sure you feel sufficiently informed about the nature of your potential case and how it may proceed. Ask all your questions about hiring a personal injury attorney so you can feel you are making the best choice. Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means you should not have to spend anything until your case is settled, at which time the attorney will take a percentage of the settlement.

Hiring an attorney for your brain injury case can be one of the most important decisions you will make in terms of your long-term financial and physical recovery. When you take the time to find the right one, you can feel comfortable that your case is being handled strategically and with your best interests in mind.
