A closed head injury such as a traumatic brain injury can devastate one’s life. Such injuries can leave a victim with permanent damage such as reduced motor skills, slurred speech, vision problems, a reduced sense of balance, or other trauma. Victims in such cases often have frontal lobe injuries which makes it difficult for them to understand the extent of their injuries. It is crucial that you hire a personal injury attorney who understands that you require compensation not just for the injury but for future care as well. The Texas head injury lawyers of Noteboom – The Law Firm handle cases in Fort Worth, Dallas, and throughout the state. Call our office today to schedule an initial consultation.
Head injuries can range in type. One may have suffered a skull fracture, a concussion, or even a serious trauma to the brain. The first step in such a case is to reasonably ascertain a victim’s current and future damages. Once these damages are ascertained then a settlement demand may be sent to the insurance companies. Damages that may be recovered by the injured include the economic loss from income and medical bills, the future income that will be lost, the cost of future medical care, pain and suffering, and any pain and suffering caused to loved ones. If a settlement cannot be reached then it will be necessary to proceed to litigation.
A lawsuit will begin with the filing of a Petition with the Court. Once litigation begins then a victim’s attorney can use the discovery process to acquire evidence of the defendant’s negligence. Such evidence may include cell phone and texting records, emails, work records, business documents, and other information. Once the investigation and discovery are complete then the case may proceed to trial. The jurors will hear evidence from both sides and reach a decision regarding both liability and damages. The victim will be able to recover as long as he or she is found to have been less than fifty-one percent responsible for the accident. This is a complicated process and you should retain experienced counsel to assist you.
