Helping Clients Through Brain Injury Cases
The consequences of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can leave you with a lifetime of consequences. Your personal injury settlement should reflect the current and future expenses of your injury, but it often takes the help of a skilled attorney to help you secure it.
At Rob Henry Attorney At Law, I can help you recover full and fair compensation to cover the costs of these injuries. I have more than 10 years of experience in these kinds of cases, and I am proud to help clients throughout Texas with their compensation claims.
Catastrophic Injuries And Traumatic Brain Injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), car accidents are one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries. These, as well as other injuries which can be considered catastrophic, turn your life upside down after an accident. Whether you suffer severe burns in a car accident, lose a limb because of crushing injuries or suffer spinal cord damage after a slip-and-fall accident, your life will never be the same.
When a serious injury prevents you from working, impacts your quality of life or when your injuries require you to have constant medical care, the stress from mounting medical costs is going to have an impact on your healing. Therefore, victims of serious injuries should always contact a Texas personal injury attorney as soon as possible. It is important to let someone else deal with the financial matters while you focus on your recovery.
Let Me Act On Your Behalf
Victims often believe they should deal directly with the responsible party’s insurance company. The problem with this is insurance adjusters will be working as hard as possible to prove their policyholder did not cause your injury. This is to protect the bottom line of the insurance company and not to look out for your best interests. For me, the most rewarding part of my career is helping clients overcome the challenges of these claims, including insurance negotiations and litigation.
Victims of catastrophic injuries or traumatic brain injuries will spend months recovering and during that time, they will be losing income and incurring steep medical bills.
Texas law defines wrongful death as a “wrongful act, neglect, carelessness, unskillfulness, or default” that results in the loss of life. These cases are difficult on family members as they are not only mourning the loss of a loved one, but they are also painfully aware that if not for the actions of another person their loved one would still be with them.
Texas requires wrongful death actions to be filed within two years of death, and they may be brought by spouses, children or parents. The suit may be filed individually by any one of these persons or may be filed jointly with all parties joining one lawsuit. In many cases, the person responsible for the death may also be facing criminal charges. However, this is not a requirement for family members to file a wrongful death suit.
Fair Compensation For Your Loss
When someone loses their life as a direct result of a wrongful act or negligence, they sometimes live for days, weeks or even months after the incident. The law provides for the wrongful death case to include the pain and suffering of the decedent during the time they were alive. Other compensation may include the loss of future wages, funeral, and burial expenses as well as loss of companionship and other damages.
While it is understandable that family members feel no amount of money will make up for the loss of a loved one, this should not prevent survivors from filing a wrongful death lawsuit. As difficult a decision as this may be, their financial future is at stake.
