Brain Injury

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, every year, approximately 1.4 million people living in the U.S. will suffer a brain injury. There are many different common causes of brain injuries ranging from sports accidents to car crashes. Head injuries can range from concussions to brain damage. If you are considering legal action after having suffered a brain injury, seek out expert legal counsel at Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C.

It is important to understand the basis of your case, including the legal theory on which your case is based. Most brain injury lawsuits are rooted in the legal concept of negligence. To prove that the defendant was negligent, you (the plaintiff) must be able to prove the following.

First, you must prove that the law required the defendant to meet a certain level of duty of care. Second, you need to show that the defendant did not act to the standard of this duty of care. Third, it must be demonstrated that negligent action or inaction on behalf of the defendant caused the brain injury itself.

Finally, you must show that you have suffered legally measurable injuries or losses as a result of this injury. These losses could take the form of lost wages due to having to miss work or financial losses due to extensive medical treatment for brain injury.

Finding evidence that corroborates all four of these pieces into a viable negligence case can be difficult, which is one of the reasons that hiring a personal injury lawyer can be a valuable investment. Your legal counsel can attempt to contact witnesses, deal with insurance agents, help compile evidence, and assist you with filing a suit and appearing in court to make your case. Attorneys skilled in handling personal injury cases will be great assets should you decide to file a suit for compensation for your brain injury.
