Filing a Personal Injury Claim for a Brain Injury
POSTED BY devind . December 6, 2019
Brain injuries can vary widely and include everything from mild concussions to severe injuries that impact your ability to function. If you believe another party is responsible for a brain injury you’ve suffered, you may want to take legal action.
For a Brain Injury
Things can be somewhat complicated when it comes to brain injuries. Signs of brain injury can sometimes take time to become apparent, and there may be no external signs of injury, making them more difficult to detect. For example, oxygen deprivation can damage the brain, though there may be no visible signs. Medical malpractice may also result in brain injuries that are not immediately obvious. Also, concussions can cause permanent damage.
For these reasons, those who suffer brain injuries are sometimes reluctant to take legal action. But the truth is, you may be entitled to receive damages as compensation for your injury.
As with any personal injury claim, you will need to demonstrate that another party is legally liable for your injury, either through their actions or their negligence. If they are deemed liable, you will be eligible to receive damages in an amount determined by the court. Learn more about personal injury cases here and here.
The process of gathering documentation to support your claim can be quite involved and having the assistance of an experienced legal representative is critical.
