Why Is It Important to Pursue Compensation with a Lawyer?
Traumatic brain injuries are expensive. Not only can they negatively impact your life severely, but you can also be rife with financial debt. Consider how expensive medical treatment is for traumatic brain injuries.
You may end up paying for things like:
- Psychological services
- Assisted living expenses
- Substitute services
- Physical rehabilitation
- Emergency room visits
All of these medical procedures, equipment, and treatment cost exorbitant amounts of money. Even with insurance, your benefits may run out or not even be able to cover these services, to begin with.
If you don’t have a strong background in law or any legal experience, you will find it hard to try and negotiate for a fair settlement alone. The insurance companies will try to take advantage of your lack of knowledge and get you to settle for less.
Get the strong arm
Insurance Companies Protect Their Bottom Line
Don’t expect an insurance company to bend over backward for your settlement. There’s no reason for them to play fair and give you a proper amount of compensation. Their interests are for their benefit, not yours.
They will use various methods, such as stall tactics, exploiting your financial condition, and trickery, to get you to admit fault to your own accident and give up on your claim. You don’t have to feel trapped by the strategies insurance companies employ to get you to settle on their terms. By hiring a lawyer to negotiate a settlement for your traumatic brain injury, you can stop the insurance company from dangling your settlement in front of your face.
You can put pressure on them to settle quickly and give you the money you deserve.
Traumatic Brain Injury Damages
You can recover compensation for many of the damages associated with traumatic brain injuries:
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capability
- Medical expenses
- Property damages
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Don’t worry if some of your damages aren’t listed here. So long as your damages directly stem from your injury, you can recover compensation for them.
Our Lawyers Can Help You File Your Claim
When it comes to filing a claim, you need to be aware of the statute of limitations. The Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33 states that you must file your claim within two years of the date you sustained your traumatic brain injury. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to collect evidence and build a strong case for your claim.
Don’t rush to settle either. If you try to aggressively pursue a claim too fast, that will work against your best interests. You want to ensure all of your evidence is accounted for and that your final settlement total is as accurate as possible.
