Brain injuries vary in cause, effect and severity. When you suffer a catastrophic brain injury that affects every aspect of your life, you might consider taking legal action to try to get the financial help that you are going to need to cover your medical bills and other expenses related to the injury.
We understand that you might need information so that you can plan what you are going to do. We help you to find out what options you have so that we can help you develop a comprehensive plan. The first step is to determine who we can turn to for compensation.
Determining who is liable for the damages of your accident starts with finding out the cause of the accident. If the accident was because someone intentionally harmed you, acted in a negligent manner or was reckless, you can pursue claims of compensation against that person.
We know that you might not be sure of where you can turn for compensation. In some cases, there is more than one place. Think about this -- you were in an accident involving a semitruck. Your brain injury was a penetrating injury similar to the injuries we discussed last week. A component of the semitruck impaled you. In this case, you might turn to the trucker, trucking company, insurance companies and the truck manufacturer for compensation.
It is imperative that you think about all options when you are going to seek compensation. The last thing that you need is to have a valid claim and not name the appropriate defendants in the case.
