Understanding Brain Injuries

Brain injuries occur when sudden, violent external jolts or blows to the head damage the brain.  Common brain injuries include concussions, contusions, and traumatic brain injuries. These injuries vary drastically in severity, so the treatment and prognosis for each case hinge on factors specific to the injury. 

While mild brain injuries may only require a few days of rest, severe traumatic brain injuries can translate to high-risk surgeries to treat brain bleeds or reduce pressure from brain swelling. 

Since brain injuries are highly individualized, the long-term prognosis varies from case to case. Mild to moderate brain injuries may have no long-term effects. In contrast, severe brain injuries can have lifelong consequences, including cognitive disabilities, extended unconsciousness, and behavioral changes. 

Some traumatic brain injuries may even result in death

How To Proceed With a Brain Injury Accident Claim

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, filing a lawsuit can help you recover compensation. Hiring an experienced Jackson, TN, brain injury lawyer is an important piece of the puzzle, as it will help alleviate your stress while you focus on healing. 

When you choose NST Law, the process starts with an initial consultation with an experienced brain injury accident lawyer. Your lawyer will keep track of the information you provide, using it to launch a comprehensive investigation through which they will gather evidence and documentation to support your claim. 

Once your lawyer builds a case, they will notify at-fault parties and their insurance companies, fielding negotiations with those involved. If we cannot negotiate a fair settlement, we will represent you in court to secure the compensation you deserve.

Liability in Jackson, TN, Brain Injury Cases

Various parties, including coworkers, other drivers, or medical care providers, can be at fault for a brain injury accident. Negligence is typically the basis for most brain injury accident claims. Generally, you must prove all the following elements to prevail in a negligence claim:

  • The party owed a duty of care.
  • The party breached the duty of care.
  • The breach of duty caused an injury you would not otherwise have suffered.
  • The breach of duty, and not something else, is the cause of your injury.

The party or parties liable for your injury will depend on the specific cause and the circumstances. 

For example, if your brain injury resulted from medical malpractice, the doctor, nurse, other medical staff, or hospital might be liable. In some cases, multiple parties may hold a degree of liability.

Proving liability in these cases can be complicated, as brain injuries are highly individualized, and the individual’s symptoms and severity are unique. For this reason, some insurance companies may avoid paying out by accusing you of faking your symptoms. 

But don’t let this deter you. A skilled brain injury accident lawyer in Jackson, TN, can review your case’s circumstances and help you determine your legal options.

Statute of Limitations

In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is one year. This means you only have one year, starting on the date of the incident, to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. Unfortunately, this time often flies by when recovering from a traumatic injury, so it’s essential to seek legal guidance as soon as possible.

Jackson, TN, has multiple hospitals, rehabilitation programs, financial resources, and support groups designed for brain injury survivors:

Frequently Asked Questions About Brain Injury Cases

The amount of compensation you can recover in a brain injury case hinges on factors specific to your case. A skilled brain injury lawyer can help you determine a fair amount based on your case. 

The type of legal claim surrounding your brain injury case depends on the circumstances surrounding the incident. For example, slips and falls and car accidents fall under the umbrella of personal injury or premises liability. In contrast, disease-induced, toxin-induced, and labor-induced brain injuries resulting from negligence often qualify as medical malpractice. 

The aftermath of a brain injury incident can be traumatic and chaotic, so hiring an attorney might not be your first thought. However, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible following the incident to determine your legal options. If you wait too long, the statute of limitations will prevent you from seeking justice and compensation.
