Investigating Your Brain Injury Accident
We will build a case for you by investigating the event that caused your brain injury. We want to know who was involved in the event, and how the other party’s actions injured you.
Brain injury cases are complex because of all the elements involved in an incident. For example, a brain injury that results from a multiple-vehicle accident may require an extensive investigation—especially when motorists dispute fault.
In this type of investigation, we may secure evidence that includes a police report, eyewitness testimony, and video footage of the accident. We may also ask an accident reconstruction specialist to determine the cause and fault for the accident.
At the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod & Baril, PLLC, we will thoroughly investigate the event that caused your brain injury and gather evidence that strengthens your case.
We thoroughly investigate your case so that we can prove how someone else’s negligent actions caused your injuries. In Tennessee, the party that causes a personal injury accident is held responsible for damages resulting from the accident. Without proving negligence, we cannot recover compensation in your case.
Filing an Insurance Claim or Lawsuit
We may file a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company to recover compensation for your damages.
We know that insurers want to save money and will initially offer low settlements. However, we will negotiate a settlement that provides full and fair compensation for the damages you suffered.
We are usually successful in negotiating, but there are times when an insurer refuses to offer fair compensation. In these instances, we may take the case to court and file a personal injury lawsuit.
Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Claim
Our brain injury lawyer in Nashville, TN can estimate your financial and non-financial losses to determine the value of your case.
Generally, the severity of an injury increases the value of an injury claim. For example, if you suffered a catastrophic injury, such as a limb amputation or a spinal cord injury that causes paralysis, you may be eligible for additional compensation.
The most common type of damages injury accident victims recover include:
Medical expenses include costs for hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation, occupational or physical therapy, prescription medication, medical mobility devices, and more.
Lost wages cover the income you lost when you were off from work due to your brain injury. If you have more than one job, you may be eligible to get reimbursed for the income you lost from all your jobs.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering includes the physical, emotional, and mental injuries you suffered because of your brain injury.
Depending on the severity of your brain injury, we will help you recover costs for your future medical needs, lost wages, and other damages.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim
If your loved one was diagnosed with a brain injury and died as a result of the event that caused the injury, we can help you file a wrongful death claim.
Surviving family members can get reimbursed for their loved one’s funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, lost wages, and other losses resulting from the death.
