What Could a Brain Injury Settlement Mean for You?
Brain injuries can lead to significant long-term expenses and costs associated with ongoing treatment. A successful pre-trial settlement or verdict from a judge could help cover:
- Medical bills for initial and ongoing healthcare needs
- Lost wages and job-related benefits like retirement contributions, health insurance, or expected raises/bonuses
- Pain and suffering, meaning the non-economic damages you’ve suffered physically and mentally
- “Punitive” damages which are “punishment” fees that may be charged to the negligent party in your case, and then awarded to you
- Wrongful death expenses for funeral costs, lost income, and lost companionship in cases of fatal brain injury
Your choice to pursue legal action today could lead to a vastly improved quality of life for you and for your family. Contact Osborne & Francis to discuss your options, and secure skilled representation right away.
In building your case, a Florida brain injury attorney must not only document your injuries, losses, and ongoing needs for the court, but also show the direct cause of your injury. The origin of the accident or incident that caused your injury will dictate who is financially responsible for the consequences.
What is the difference between a brain injury and a traumatic brain injury?
“Brain injury” is a general category that includes damage to the brain from various factors, including impacts, a lack of oxygen, pressure from a tumor, or exposure to toxins. “Traumatic brain injuries” are a specific type of brain injury that result from outside forces to the brain or skull, such as from a slip and fall or a vehicular accident.
Regardless of the cause, all brain injuries can be serious and require immediate medical attention. Contact a lawyer at Osborne & Francis to learn about financial assistance for a brain injury claim.
