We recently discussed some premises liability issues that you might face. In these accidents, as well as car accidents and any other type of accident, you might suffer a brain injury. These injuries can have horrible effects on your life. You should evaluate the possibility of seeking compensation if you are facing a brain injury after an accident.
In many cases, there are a few questions that we can ask to find out what you might do. In most cases, we want to know the answers to these questions:
Who caused the accident?
Typically, the person who caused the accident can be held liable for your injury. Other parties might also be liable, so we need to know the exact circumstances of the accident to determine who to name as defendants.
Where did the accident occur?
The location of the accident might have an impact on how we handle the case. If it occurred on government property, the process is different than if it happened on the privately owned property.
How did the accident occur?
The manner in which the accident occurred can impact the case. We have to determine if there is any way that you might be considered at least partially at fault for the accident.
What kind of lifelong care will you need?
The medical care you have already gotten and the care you will need for the rest of your life because of the brain injury can impact your claim. We need to determine the damages that you have suffered and that you will suffer in the future. This is crucial because we can’t come back if you run out of money and demand more.
