Compensation is possible if a person’s negligence leads to harm

On Behalf of | Sep 16, 2020 | Brain Injuries

Suffering from a brain injury means that your life may dramatically change. When the injury is the result of another person’s negligence, you may realize that you shouldn’t be the one who has to deal with the financial impacts of the injury. When this happens, you may opt to pursue a claim for compensation.

There are many things that you might need to include in your claim for compensation. For example, the medical bills you’ve paid should be part of it, but you can’t forget about the money your insurance company paid. The insurance company can come after you due to subrogation, which enables them to turn to you for repayment of what the company paid if your claim is successful.

On top of the repayment for medical care costs, you may also need to try to recover lost wages. This is possible if you had to miss work because of the injury. We can help you determine how to handle this aspect of your case because it varies depending on how you’re usually paid. Wages for hourly employees are determined differently than salary ones. Things like commission can also change how this is handled.

Other types of damages might also be possible. We’ll review your case and help you determine what you should claim. We know that this a difficult time for you, so we can handle the legal aspects of the case while you focus on healing. Our goal is to help you get the compensation you deserve since you’re having to live with the impacts of the brain injury.
