Brain Injury Claims

How To Win Your Brain Injury CaseBrain Injury cases in New York can often be tricky because they are not only uncommon, but also are often missed or even misdiagnosed. Oftentimes the loved ones of the injured are the first ones to notice that there’s been some kind of trauma to the brain. Even a relatively normal MRI does not mean that you did not suffer a brain trauma, although we are learning more and more every year now. Concussion studies conducted on football players and veterans, for example, are providing more clarity. The technology is developing, but brain injuries are still some of the trickiest to diagnose, to treat, and— for attorneys— to prove. There are different types of specialists out there, including neurologists and neuropsychologists, who will focus on these injuries, run tests, and conduct cognitive testing. We can help you find the specialists you need to get a correct diagnosis.

Choosing a Brain Injury Attorney

Initially, people often ask, “How do we pick the right attorney for a brain injury claim?” As with any claim, I always advise that individuals take the time to interview a potential attorney at the attorney-client interview. Most clients and attorneys think it’s the attorney interviewing the client, but it’s actually the only opportunity for a client to determine or assess what a lawyer offers in terms of experience, confidence and competence in handling that type of matter.

Brain Injury Case Value

People often ask, “How do you value a brain injury case?” As with the timeline of a case, many factors go into that calculation. For example, if somebody was a wage-earner before they were injured but is now prevented from earning by brain trauma, we could base our calculation upon what they were earning. This might include what benefits they were accumulating as a result of that particular job or career. Others factors that might go into the calculation include medical costs and future medical care, or if brain trauma has caused the client to lose the ability to execute daily tasks.

Brain Injury Case Timeline

People often ask, “How long will it take my brain trauma case to resolve?” The answer involves many factors. First and foremost, it depends on whether or not the insurance company is going to accept fault. Once liability is determined, it is then a matter of whether or not they will fairly assess damages. Unfortunately, that’s often not the case. Insurance companies often force us to litigate the case and go to court or sometimes trial. When the insurance carrier is not dealing with us in a way we think is fair, it prolongs the case in terms of litigation, discovery, depositions, hearings, mediation, and arbitration. There are many ways that we can push these things through to resolution; if an insurance carrier is not dealing fairly, however, it will prolong how long the case takes to resolve.
