Common Causes of a Traumatic Brain Injury
There are different types of brain injuries and they range in severity from mild to severe. A mild brain injury or concussion is not life-threatening but it requires treatment from a healthcare provider. Moderate or severe brain injuries can be life-threatening and may lead to long-term health problems that may affect all aspects of a person’s life.
Even when your brain injury is categorized as mild, you may still suffer damages and the person whose actions caused your injury should bear the financial responsibility. The Bellevue personal injury lawyers at Malcolm Law have experience protecting the rights of brain injury victims and will fight to get the best outcome possible in every case.
Proving a Traumatic Brain Injury Case in Bellevue, WA
To get compensation for your traumatic brain injury, you must prove all the elements of your case. To prove a case based on negligence, you must show:
The person that caused your injury owed you a duty of care
They breached their duty
The breach was the proximate cause of your injury
You suffered actual losses as a result of your injury
Determining the proximate cause of your injury is not always a simple exercise. If your traumatic brain injury was caused by a car accident, the direct cause of your TBI is the car crash. However, in some cases, the driver of the car may not have acted negligently or recklessly. If the crash was caused by a defective part, then the manufacturers and not the driver would be the legally responsible party in your case.
An experienced Bellevue traumatic brain injury lawyer will conduct a thorough investigation in your case to identify all the parties that are legally responsible for your injury. Your lawyer will also ensure that all your actual damages are properly accounted for and given fair value.
What Damages Are Available for My Bellevue TBI Case?
The recoverable damages will depend on the severity of your brain injury and the circumstances of the case. You may be entitled to both economic and non-economic damages including:
Loss of earnings
Pain and suffering
At Malcolm Law, our focus is on litigation and trial advocacy to ensure that you obtain maximum compensation for your injury through a fair settlement or verdict.
