After suffering a severe injury to your head in an accident, you may be unsure how to proceed. Bader Scott Injury Lawyers is ready to help you navigate the often tricky world of personal injury law. You might be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party.
Rather than trying to handle your Brookhaven case alone, allow one of our personal injury lawyers to take the necessary steps and advocate on your behalf. We charge no upfront fees or out-of-pocket costs, starting with a free case assessment. Once you choose to hire us, we will be available to answer questions whenever required.
Compensation That We Can Help You Win
If you are unsure exactly what kind of compensation you can win in a personal injury case, we can outline your recoverable damages upon reviewing the evidence. In general, there are two types: economic (financial) and non-economic (non-financial). These categories require different approaches when it comes to valuing your damages.
A serious head injury can have lingering effects that affect the victim’s whole life. Some, especially those involving a traumatic brain injury (TBI), may never heal fully, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine. Receiving medical care for a TBI can result in extremely high medical costs. Some of the items we can help you recover compensation for include:
- Emergency medical care
- Ongoing medical care
- Prescription drugs
- Physical therapy
- Your transportation to and stay at the hospital
- Wages you lost while recovering
- Wages you may lose in the future
You as the victim may also need to hire help for your personal and daily care needs, from dressing and bathing to driving and getting groceries. We can calculate these damages by compiling the related receipts, invoices, bills, and past paychecks and adding up the expenses and losses.
Calculating Your Non-Economic Damages
Damages like mental trauma, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and disability are harder to estimate because they are subjective. Because we have represented many clients who have suffered head and brain injuries, we have an idea about the kind of circumstances you may be facing.
When we are ready to assign a value to these damages, our team will take into account a number of items related to your long-term health, including:
- Your ability to think clearly and make decisions, which will affect your job prospects
- Your short-term memory performance, which can affect your personal relationships
- Whether you are having ongoing headaches, which affects your ability to enjoy life
- Any emotional trauma you are experiencing, which can lead to an inability to sleep or a diagnosis of depression
- Any facial trauma you may have suffered in the accident leaving you with a disfigurement that can affect the quality of your life
We Have Recovered Millions in Damages for Our Clients
When you suffer a brain injury in an accident that another person caused, you may be facing an uncertain future. You may not be able to work in the same job you had prior to the accident when you need it most. Our team at Bader Scott Injury Lawyers has won six and seven-figure settlements for our clients in the past.
Although we cannot guarantee how much you could win in your case, we are committed to providing you with the same services our previous clients received. The amount you could win will depend on the severity of your injuries and the ongoing effect the injuries will have on your life. We will ensure that every damage is accounted for and properly valued before moving forward with your case.
Let Us Represent Your Interests
When another person causes your injuries through reckless behavior, you deserve a settlement that compensates you for any and all health issues you face as a result—now and in the future. We have seen how these types of injuries affect the life of the victims, and our goal is to mitigate the financial harm they suffer.
Our lawyers will not let anyone intimidate us as we seek your financial recovery. If we cannot achieve a fair settlement amount for you during negotiations, we will stand by your side in court. As we move through the case, we will provide advice about what you should do, but the final decision always belongs to you.
You Pay Nothing for Our Services Unless We Win
If you are facing significant medical costs after a head injury, you may be worried about your financial future. At Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, our team will not add to your financial burden.
We work on a contingency–fee–basis, which means you do not have to pay us anything ahead of time to hire us to represent you. Our fee for representing you in the case comes from a percentage of the final settlement amount if we win.
If we do not win a judgment for you, you do not pay anything. Call our team to discuss working with a Brookhaven head and brain injury lawyer at (404) 888-8888.
