Our team has won massive settlements for injury victims, and we welcome any and all questions regarding brain injury cases. 

To help answer common brain injury-related questions, we’ve put together the below list of frequently asked questions. **Please do note, however, that this list is not intended to give specific legal advice. These are simply common questions our firm received regarding brain injury cases. 

To get the best possible advice regarding your own case, be sure to get in touch with our team to have them answered. 

If The Negligence is clear, why do i need an attorney?

Even in cases of clear-cut negligence where a party is obviously responsible for an injury, this does not mean you will win the maximum amount of compensation possible. Especially with serious injury cases that affect the brain, victims should always seek out the largest amount of compensation possible to best heal and recover from their injuries, as well as any lost income or emotion trauma, all of which must be compensated for – not just medical bills. An expert attorney can help you best navigate your case to win you the absolute highest amount of compensation possible. 

what is the timeline of a brain injury suit?

Personal injury law can often be complex, and there are rules that must be followed when seeking compensation for these cases. There are statutes of limitations that dictate how long you can wait to file a suit against a negligent party, however, there are often extensions and exceptions granted for cases that involve brain injury, particularly those that are severe. Building a strong case also involved collection medical records, consulting experts, and speaking to witnesses, all of which take time. 

How large of a settlement can i expect if i win my brain injury case?

The amount of compensation won and deserved for brain injury cases will depend on the severity of the brain damage that has occurred and the severity of the accident that caused the brain trauma. Typically, the responsible party will be required to pay for medical bills, lost income, rehab expenses, medical staff expenses, as well as emotional trauma and distress. 

do i have any guarantees of results?

No – while the team at Carpenter & Zuckerman has been navigating extremely complex injury cases with decades of combined experience, every injury case is different. There’s never any way to know for certain how long a case will take to settle, or what type of treatment an injury to the brain will require, affecting the amount of compensation asked for. Our team has a network of medical and financial professionals that we work with to build the absolute strongest case possible, and that help us win our clients the absolute most compensation possible. However, we cannot guarantee individual case results. 

is there a reason The Insurance Company is making is so hard to get compensation?

Not many members of the public know this, but insurance companies are in quite a nasty business – they maintain and improve their profits by purposely giving lower compensation for claims than they know the victim deserves. Typically, the claim process will begin with the insurance company denying that they are responsible for any accident that has taken place. When this fails, they will attempt to downplay the victims injuries in an attempt to pay out less compensation than is deserved. 

No matter what type of injury you sustain due to some else’s negligence, it is vital that you rely upon a veteran injury attorney who understands the many nuances of injury cases to win you the absolute largest amount of compensation possible.
