Don’t Play the Thinking Game


EDUCATION A lawyer will educate you on your rights and how they should be applied. They will also instruct you on the proper ways to interact with insurance companies and other involved parties, and they will step in as the direct point of contact and wade through that stress for you. You can trust them to know the law and keep you informed about every move along the way. ASSESSMENT Your lawyer will also know exactly what evidence to gather in order to build a strong case for you. Things like items involved in the accident, statements from witnesses or officials, photos, and medical documents are crucial to have, and those items need to be thoroughly assessed to be effectively used on your behalf. After looking at all the evidence, your lawyer can also appropriately deem the amount of compensation you deserve. GUIDANCE Finally, a lawyer can be there for you long after your case has been settled. You may need assistance protecting your rights to future medical care or benefits in workers’ compensation. A lawyer can guide you and your case in the direction it needs to go at any time in order to continue fulfilling your deserved compensation.

The stakes involved when you or a loved one has been affected by a traumatic brain injury are high. The injured party may not be in the right state of mind to make decisions for themselves, meaning the stress of complex legal decisions falls to their loved ones. This is when insurance companies descend and take advantage, leaving you with a settlement that doesn’t provide the compensation you need. But a lawyer can help you fight for what you deserve.

Don’t navigate this difficult situation alone. If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury, call our office at 864.582.0416 so we can assess your case.
