Q Why should I hire a lawyer if I have a traumatic brain injury?
It is a sad fact that insurance companies do not always have your health and rights at heart. Like any other company, their job is to make money—usually at your expense. When you’re in an accident, or suffer a brain injury, they’ll do everything in their power—including using your injury against you—to delay, haggle, or deny you your rightful settlement. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in TBI settlements are lost to Louisiana insurance companies because victims are unaware of their rights. This is why it is extremely important to seek the counsel of an experienced traumatic brain injury lawyer.
Depending on the severity of your TBI, you could be completely incapacitated, unable to communicate, or mentally and psychologically incapable of dealing with your insurance claim. Without representation your bills could go unpaid, your claims could go un-filed, and your injury may worsen without money for treatment. However, with experienced representation, you and your family, can be protected and receive the utmost legal care and help whenever it is needed.
What an Experienced Lawyer Can Do for You
- Help determine who is at fault.
- File your claim.
- Research and gather the necessary evidence and information needed for your claim.
- Set up a Power of Attorney: without a legal Power of Attorney or court ordered guardianship, no one, not even a spouse, or family member has the legal authority to sign your signature or make medical decisions.
- Handle guardianship and competency issues.
- Fight tooth and nail to make sure you get the best settlement your injury deserves.
- Provide support and information throughout the entirety of your case.
- Give you the comfort and security that comes with knowing you’re in good hands.
