Common Questions About Serious Personal Injuries
It is understandable to have many questions after a devastating injury. Below are just some of the common questions we receive from potential clients.
My family member suffered a brain injury in an accident. How much compensation can they receive?
Every case is unique, and the answer to that question will depend on the extent of their injuries, the needed medical treatment and how long the injury-related impairment is expected to last. You can seek compensation for things like hospital bills, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, lost wages, reduced earning capacity and more.
While each case is unique, the costs associated with TBI tend to be very high. Therefore, it is likely that your family will need to seek significant compensation.
I was injured on someone else’s property, but I don’t want to sue them. What can I do?
It is understandable to not want to sue a property owner if you otherwise have a good relationship with them. Thankfully, you can file a premises liability claim with the property owner’s insurance instead. Litigation may be required if the insurance company is refusing to offer a fair settlement, but any action would be against the insurer – not the property owner. That is an important distinction, and most people wouldn’t take it personally.
How does a fatal car accident claim work?
When a victim is seriously injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, the victim can file a personal injury lawsuit. When the accident is fatal, however, a representative for the victim can sue the at-fault driver in a wrongful death claim. State laws limit who can act as a representative for the victim in litigation (usually certain family members). You can learn more about fatal accident litigation on our wrongful death claims page.
